What are Parent and Child Themes? #

A WordPress child theme takes the functionality of another theme, named parent theme. It gives you the possibility to customize an existing theme. Instead of modifying the theme files directly, you can activate the child theme and work within it.

All customizations are stored in the child theme and anything in the child takes priority over the parent. So if the same file exists in both child and parent, the file from the child will control that aspect of the theme.

Working with child themes, your customizations are safeguarded from future upgrades because you only upgrade the parent theme, which you never edit, while the customizations are protected in your child theme which you don’t upgrade.

Why use a Child theme? #

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.

When you install one of our Exhibz themes you must upload both Exhibz parent and Exhibz child theme folders to /wp-content/themes/ but you should only activate the Exhibz Child theme via Appearance -> Themes.
