Child Theme vs Parent Theme

A Child Theme is a theme that inherits the functionality and styling of another theme, called the Parent Theme. Child Themes are the recommended way of modifying an existing theme. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you use Child Theme instead of Parent Theme.

There are few good reasons, why we recommend you to use a Child Theme:

Sample Child Theme is included

All SingleStroke's themes are packaged with a sample Child Theme. You can directly install the Child Theme along with the Parent Theme, and then activate the Child Theme. No additional setup is required, as our sample Child Theme already contains pre-defined scripts to make it works out of the box with the Parent Theme.

Migrating to Child Theme

If you have been using Parent Theme and at certain point you need to migrate to Child Theme, you can easily activate the Child Theme. All the configurations would remain safe, the only things you need to re-configure is Menus location. Please go to Appearance > Menus and re-assign your menu to the appropriate location.
