The first time I ever built a WordPress site I didn’t use a child theme. You probably didn’t either, admit it. Whoops. Big whoops. If the theme ever updated (fortunately, it didn’t) I’d have lost a lot of hard work.
This simple guide breaks down everything you need to know so that you’ll never have to worry. Get it right first time, use a child theme.
