    I mean can we create a child theme to change design elements?

    I just need to know how limited we might be for design requests from the client.

    If we make a change to the header.php file, for instance, and then a new update comes out…version 1.2 for instance…and the update is applied, then the theme will over-write any changes we made to the header.php file. That’s what we need to avoid.

    Hello,
    Yes you can create a child theme but from your question i’m not sure you understand how a child theme should work.

    Once a child theme is created it cannot be over-write by a main theme update. What is in the child theme it can only be over -write by it’s creators (you).

    Look over this documentation: https://developer.wordpress.org/themes/advanced-topics/child-themes/

    Thank you

    Thank you. What I meant is that without a child theme, that is exactly what would happen.

    Very good to know.
