Not going to use a child theme. But wanted to know, as I have GP premium too, if I can make some initial
changes to the default theme in customiser prior to activation – correct navigation menu, widgets etc.
I’m going to do it live as the changes are mostly css, which I’ve done on a dummy site.
Customizer settings are stored in the Theme config.
So changes made in one theme will not transfer over if you change to a different theme.
But changes in the Free Theme will remain after the GP Premium plugin is activated.
I have GP free installed but not activated. I can still play around with it in Customiser, which pops up in Preview mode. If I make changes, and then activate it, will the theme be activated with those changes
