Child Themes

WordPress Canvas now supports customizations through the use of child themes. You can grab a blank child theme for this theme from your package folder you downloaded.

Why use a Child Theme?

  • If you modify an existing theme and it is updated, your changes will be lost. With a child theme, you can update the parent theme (which might be important for security or functionality) and still keep your changes.
  • It can speed up development time.
  • It’s a great way to get started if you are just learning WordPress theme development.
