My website loses information when activating Sydney Child Theme

Hi guys.
I have created my website using the Sydney theme. I want now to add a new language with Polylang and I realised I had to work on a child theme for security…

I have installed and activated the child theme but my website has lost its appearance completely. I thought it was going to do literally a copy of the current parent one but it didn’t so I have gone back to the parent one.

Can someone please help me to create a child theme without loosing my current set up and appearance?

Many thanks in advance :slight_smile:


It’s normal that you lose your Customize settings after child theme activation. Each theme has its own options storage in database, even child themes. So you would have to configure it once again. Please feel free to ask any other questions that you might have.

Kind Regards, Roman.
