Child theme activation #back to top


Activating child theme

A child theme in WordPress is small, lightweight "add-on" theme that inherits all the styling and functionality of another theme, called the "parent theme" in this case. You can create a child theme for any theme in WordPress. Child themes are used when you want to make changes to a site without actually changing the code or files in your original theme. This lets you update your original theme (which is the engine behind the child theme) without losing any changes you made to your site. Please view this video tutorial about how to upload and activate Child Theme.

Changing original theme files can very easily become a cause of an issue. Child theme is a safe and easy way to change things in your main content without worries about losing your work during updating a theme. Just use a child theme.

Customizer Options #back to top


Opportunities of customizer

We have integrated many additional options to the default Wordpress "Customize" menu, which provides you with flexible control on the appearance and behavior of the entire website as well as of the individual page types. Moreover, you can see the changes of the frontend right after the alterations - when the needed parameter is selected, without switching from admin to frontend each time. It saves much of your time and allows you to customize website just in several clicks. When your changes are prepared trough "Cuztomize" menu, you should click "Save and Publish" button at the top. There are quite a lot of parameters here, but luckily the majority of them have default values that suit most of the users. This beautiful theme contains very optional and useful Customizer, which allows you to control many features of the appearance of your website. To open it, please go to your "WP Dashboard" => "Appearance" => "Customize"=> "Widgets". Here we can see how many widgets theme has and general settings of "Customize".

All these widgets have optimal settings for the appearance of the frontpage. Please do not forget click "Save and Publish" button in order to apply your customization changes.
