Hi Andrew, newbie here again. I have built my site using Ultra and everything’s good except I now realize I should have first created and used a child theme so things don’t fall apart at the next update. I don’t know anything about css coding though I can cut/paste and type. Can you help with advice? Thanks in advance
Did you edit theme files at a code level? Perhaps via Appearance > Editor or directly via FTP upload and download? If not, no update loss will occur.
When WP themes and plugins update their entire folder is overwritten. This means that code edits will be lost. Everything else like settings, content, widget locations, those are all safe as they stored in the database.
Well, I certainly didn’t change any code manually. I used Appearance>Customize>Theme settings, page settings etc. Some widgets like MetaSlider, SiteOrigin PageBuilder, also to change fonts and so on. Will this be safe from updates in the future? Thanks
