I started with Atahualpa, great theme, but never heard of child themes, up until I saw that both WordPress and Atahualpa have a new version available.
There's warnings that I will lose all the changes I made when I do the update.
Of course I don't want that. So I read about child themes and started making one, but i'm kinda confused, cause how am I gonna get all the changes I've made in Atahualpa (including custom ones directly in the php files), into the child theme and afterwards be able to update both Atahualpa and WordPress?
Can I copy all the php files from Atahualpa directory to my child theme directory? Or is that not gonna do the trick?
I read about how to make child themes, but haven't found info on how to make your child theme if your website is already in place.
If anyone can be of help, I would be very grateful. Or if I missed information on this in another topic, please let me know, so I can continue my search there.
