Child theme overrides my custom settings

I apologize if this topic is already here. I can’t find it. I would like to use the child theme because every time Sydney updates, I lose my footer customization. However, when I activated it, my front page reverted to Sydney’s theme. I almost passed out. I immediately re-activated the parent. I have spent hours getting my colors just right. Is there any way to avoid the settings override? For me, that was very discouraging.

Thanks in advance for your time.

All the best,
Jesamine

Hi,

The Child Theme will act like a new theme, so your settings have to be re-done after activating the Child Theme, if you want to use a Child Theme it’s best to create / activate the Child Theme from the beginning, to avoid double-setup.

Hi Csaba, thanks for responding. Unfortunately, I did not know about Child Themes when I set up my site. I will know next time! Live and learn…
