How to Create a Child Theme

Why use a Child Theme?

Here are a few reasons:

If you modify an existing theme and it is updated, your changes will be lost. With a child theme, you can update the parent theme (which might be important for security or functionality) and still keep your changes.

It can speed up development time.

It’s a great way to get started if you are just learning WordPress theme development.
