Just want to make sure I understand this plugin.

When we upgrade to latest version of a theme, we still have to go into the new stylesheet, etc. and redo the customizations we had made to the earlier version, right?

It's not that the plugin *magically* transfers the customizations over to the new version.

Just checking,

Hi Nina,

if only we could create that bit of Magic. I think instant fame (and fortune!) would be ours.

So, nope ... you start with a fresh theme out-of-the-box, but your existing theme will be saved,

If you use a theme that supports parent-child structure like Builder, you can upgrade the parent theme w/o worrying about loss of customizations.
