How can I customize my site when using a child theme? ↑ Back to top
A lot of WordPress tutorials will recommend inserting code snippets into a child themes functions.php file. This is to ensure that you’re always able to update the parent theme without losing your changes. As Pharmacy is already a child theme, you aren’t able to do this. Any changes you add to Pharmacy’s functions.php file will be lost when you perform an update. Instead, it is recommended that you add any code snippets to a customization plugin. We’ve created a plugin you can use to do just this. Download Theme Customizations.
