Child Theme

This theme has Child Theme support to customize theme without any losses from the main theme.

If you want to make modifications on this theme, it is recommended to use a child theme.
This theme comes with a blank child theme that you can use. In the theme package you can find "elantra-child" folder.
Upload this folder to your wp-content/themes folder, and activate it from the Appearance Themes. Once activated, you can start editing inside this "elantra-child" folder.

This child theme includes 2 files that you can use to override parent theme's style (style.css) and function (functions.php). By using child theme, you will leave the parent theme unmodified, so when a theme update is available, you can simply replace the parent theme without worry about your modified code. For more info about using child themes, please visit this link: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes
