    Hi I have a question about the proper use of the child theme with Enfold

    If I make modifications to the header.php – and move that file over to the child folder what will happen when the parent theme is updated.

    Will the child theme override the parent then and will it be an older version ?

    Hey rcgroup!

    Yes, for more information, please see



    Thanks for the reply – I read the information your provided.

    I’m still confused however.

    If a modified header.php file is placed in the child folder – what happens when the parent version of the header.php is updated as a result of a theme update ?

    For example based on the documentation from wordpress It seems that that function.php will merge the old and the new.


    OK – I got it now
