If you find yourself needing to modify core files or seeking a more efficient method to manage custom CSS, we strongly advise utilizing a child theme.
Once the child theme is activated, you can effortlessly incorporate your customizations. Here’s how to begin:
- Activating the Child Theme Banca: To activate your child theme, navigate to your WordPress dashboard and click on Appearance > Themes. Locate your child theme and select the option to activate it.
- Adding Custom CSS: To apply custom CSS, locate the child theme’s style.css file. You can access this file through Appearance > Editor in your WordPress dashboard. Insert your custom CSS directly into this file to override or enhance the existing styles.
- Integrating Custom PHP Code: If you require adding custom PHP functionality, the functions.php file of the child theme is the designated location. Similarly, access this file through Appearance > Editor, and insert your PHP code as necessary. This approach enables you to enhance the functionality of your theme without directly modifying the parent theme files.
By following these steps, you can uphold a clear separation between your customizations and the main theme files, thereby ensuring smoother updates and maintenance in the future.
