    Site is now a couple of years old, now looking to add a child theme due to requests from client for some new features.

    If I apply a child theme and after importing settings will the site lose a lot of layouts like pages with the avia framework builder, sidebars, widgets, home page layouts etc?

    as the site is now fairly extensive it is late in the day to apply a child theme, i’m anxious about losing some parts of the site and not being able to spot what may be missing?


    Hey geordiemac,

    You shouldn’t lose anything on your site if you add a child theme since the child’s job is only to override the parent, but you will have to move any changes you have made to the parent into the child if you want to update the parent. Maybe it would be better if you set up a staging environment if you want to make sure that everything works before you apply it to the live site?

    Best regards,
