    I am using child themes for all my websites, and I have some customized files in my child theme folder like functions.php and footer.php

    Now I like to know what to do when there is a WordPress core update: do I have to remove the functions.php and footer.php files in my Child themes folder with the new ones? And them of course add my custom code again to the files?

    Thank you for your help :)


    Hey Alwin,

    That should not be necessary with most updates, since the files in question only override the parent files. In rare cases the structure in files like footer.php can change though, then it would be necessary to copy the code from the parent theme and then add your customisations again.

    Best regards,
