    Hi:

    I just implemented GeneratePress Premium and think it is great. I love the configurability of the theme and the Premium addons. After spending significant time configuring the various options available through the theme and the Premium addons, I decided that I need to make a css change to suppress navigation at the bottom of posts and believe that I should create a child theme to do that. When I create the child theme and activate it, I see that I have lost all the configuration that I did initially. This is a major pain. Am I doing something wrong or do I just need to suck it up and go through and redo all the configuration?

    You shouldn’t lose any configuration by activating a blank child theme – the settings live in the database which isn’t touched.

    The one thing you might lose is your theme location in “Appearance > Menus”.

    Another alternative if you’re just adding CSS is to use our Simple CSS plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-css/

    Let me know if you need more info 🙂

    Thanks Tom for the quick and helpful solution. The Simple-CSS plugin worked like a charm.

    I won’t bother with the child theme problem at this time. When I have a lot of time, I might investigate further.
