    Sorry if this has already been answered somewhere, but I couldn’t find what I was looking for through various searches.

    I have made updates to a child theme (basically just configuration and content and settings, etc) that I installed back in August and activated with Enfold 1.9.1. Now I would like to upgrade to the latest version of Enfold (2.4.2, I believe it is), and I will doing this via my FTP as it doesn’t work via the WP backend itself.

    However, I want to check and see if this is possible without destroying what’s been done in the child theme that is currently active. Is this supposed to be a smooth transition as the main Enfold theme itself is not activated, even though it’s required for the Child theme to work. Or is there a child theme that I will have to upgrade as well?




    Hi vchemko!

    The only thing that will be effected is if you have copied over any of the files from the parent root folder into your child theme. For example the header.php file or footer.php file.

    Upgrades never change your theme settings since they are saved in the WordPress database against your theme name.

    Best regards,


    Thanks! This worked out perfectly.
