Child Theme on Sydney Pro

Hi
would you recommend to create a Child Theme on Sydney pro?

thanks

Hello there,

It depend on how you plan to manage your site. If you’d like to do some design changes that can’t be done over customizer (Appearance > Customize) or would like insert some PHP code to your site, we strongly recommend you use a child theme. We have a pre-made Sydney Pro child theme available for download in this link. Please note that it doesn’t do much as it’s a plain child theme aimed for starting point purpose. Before you install and enable it on your site, I’d suggest you read all about child theme here at Codex.

thanks a lot!
When there is an update on the main theme, will the child be updated too?

thanks

Child theme is actually different theme and it has its own update route.

Thanks
But child theme can be updated, can’t it?

Hello there,

You wouldn’t get any update notice on the child theme as we don’t have a plan to do so. We keep it as it is, because we want it to be a starter child theme.
