Builder Child Themes: Updating
Non-Customized Child Themes
If you haven't made any custom changes to the Style.css of your Builder child theme, follow these steps:
- Take a full backup of your site using BackupBuddy.
- Download the latest version of child theme from the iThemes Member Panel.
- Check the site and ensure that everything is alright. You can use a plugin like Theme Test Drive to see the site in older version of this child theme in another tab/browser
Custom Child Themes
Note: It is generally not recommended to update a child theme if it has been extensively customized. Any custom changes you have made to the Style.css of your Builder child theme will be erased by updating.
- Make a list of changes and addition/deletions done to files and folders in the current child theme directory
