What is a Parent Theme vs a Child Theme?
This video shows a step by step installation of a (special kind of) theme combo for WordPress. Here we install a Parent and a Child Theme combo to our website. The benefit of a parent/child theme combo is that it allows you to make changes to the “look and feel” of the theme without changing the themes core code structure. This way, if there is a software update to the theme, the software is changed in the parent theme and all of your changes will not be overwritten in the child theme . This is not the case if you make changes to a non parent/child theme. If a “regular” theme has a software update, and you update it, you will most likely lose your changes. So, check out the video for all the steps you need to install a parent/child theme combo.
