If you want to tweak or customize a WordPress theme—whether a built-in theme or theme downloaded from elsewhere—a child theme is the way to go. Otherwise, if you customize the theme directly, all your work will be lost when the theme updates!
In this Coffee Break Course, Envato Tuts+ instructor Rachel McCollin will teach you how to customize a WordPress theme by using a child theme. You'll see how to set up your child theme, how to customize the style of a screen element, and how to modify a theme template for extra control.
