Child Theme Guidelines

Hello, question:

Is it necessary to create a child theme, will this theme overwrite css changes made in the customizer tab?

HI @sypher187,

I hope you are well today and thank you for your question.

If you just want to make CSS changes in the theme then it is no need to create child theme. You can use the CSS code by adding the following CSS code in the Custom CSS option of the latest version of Sparkling theme on the below path.

Admin Area -> Appearance -> Customize -> Sparkling Options -> Other -> Custom CSS

But If you make changes in the theme file then you have to make these changes again after theme updation as changes made in the theme files get lost on theme updation so you need to use child theme as described in the following page.
