    Hi
    I have just noticed that there is an update I need to do of Catch Responsive free theme. However, I’m not sure whether doing this update will make slight changes to my site:
    http://www.creativesigns.uk.com
    I have a tiny bit of css on the site. I have read about child theme but am not sure about them, or how to set up.
    This is the css for the site:

    .nav-primary {
    background-color: #8BC53F;
    }
    .catchresponsive-nav-menu li a:hover,
    .catchresponsive-nav-menu li a:focus {
    background-color: #8BC53F;
    }

    .home #main .page header.entry-header{
    display: none;
    }

    p {
    -moz-hyphens: none;
    -ms-hyphens: none;
    -webkit-hyphens: none;
    hyphens: none;
    }
    #feature-slider .entry-container {
    display: none;
    }

    Will this be overwritten if I update the theme? As I’m not sure how to create child theme could I simply copy and paste this css, then insert it when the theme update has been done?

    Many thanks for your help.
    Kind regards
    Karen

    @creativesigns: It depends on where you have put the CSS in. If you have put the CSS in customizer, it will be retained even after update. But if you have put in somewhere in the theme file, you’ll lose it. I recommend to put it in the Customizer’s Custom CSS. Since WordPress 4.7, this option comes by default. Go to Dashboard=> Appearance=> Customizer=> Additional CSS.
    Or, yes you can use the child theme as well. You can find more details on creating child theme HERE.
    Hope this helps.

    Hi Mahesh

    Many thanks for your reply.

    At present the bit of code mentioned is in Dashboard > Appearance > Customise > Theme Options > Custom CSS Options. Will that be ok there after theme update, or will that be overwritten? I’ve got a message to upgrade to WordPress 4.7.1 so my menus are slightly different to those you mention, but I’m just backing up before I do WordPress upgrade.

    Thanks for the link to creating the child theme. It’s too complicated for me though, I’m not a web designer, I’ve just ended up setting up and managing our company website.

    I have copied the bit of css code we have so if I update and it disappears I guess I can just paste it into the custom css section again?

    Many thanks
    Karen

    @creativesigns: Yes, as with the update, Custom CSS option of the theme will be disabled. However, everything in it will be successfully migrated to Dashbaord=> Appearance=> Customize=> Additional CSS. So if you want to edit anything, you can edit in there.
