Courselog is a lightweight theme with excellent customization capabilities. Before you start exploring the feature set, let’s get you up to speed with the installation process.
Safe Updates. You can easily modify your website using child themes without ever changing the parent theme. When a new version of the parent theme appears, you can safely update it as all your modifications are saved in the child theme. Easy to Extend. A child theme has great flexibility. It does not require writing a lot of code. You can modify only those template files and functions that you need.
Note: When you install one of our Courselog themes you must upload both Courselog parent and Courselog child theme folders to /wp-content/themes/ but you should only activate the Courselog Child theme via Appearance -> Themes.
Parent themes have child themes, which are easily customizable. Once you customize them, you don’t need to worry about messing up the whole theme. In short, a child theme keeps the original formatting. And the parent theme update doesn’t change the styling within the child theme.
All in all, using a child theme offers you better control.
