What is a child theme in WordPress?

A child theme is a copy of an existing WordPress theme. With a child theme you can make a variant of an existing theme without your changes being undone when an update of the original ‘main’ theme is made.

This way you can change the layout of a theme and adjust or add functions without having to change the existing theme.

For help with your child theme, ask the help of a WordPress expert.
