    Everything I read tells me that I should be using a child theme rather than the parent one. Sooooo…….. 1) how do I invoke a child theme 2) how do I point my website to the child and not the parent 3) what happens when the parent is updated 4) how does a child theme ensure recovery if the parent somehow breaks the website? 5) customizing a parent theme, does that flow to the child? Customizing the child, does it flow to the parent? What difference does it make? 6) it really makes me confused; if anyone can point me to someplace that clarifies, I would be very appreciative. My Google skills apparently are lacking on this one. – by hq overview cupper3 – –
