    I added a child theme from Adrian at WPcrafter as good practice but Im not sure how it works.

    It appears to me to be identical to the parent.

    Im a complete novice learning as I go and I doubt if I will do anything beyond using beaver builder and Thrive.

    At the moment I have the child theme activated but Im not sure if I continue building my site on the child theme from now on, instead of the parent theme. If so, will I need to use the parent theme again?

    Hi there,

    The parent theme still needs to be installed but the child theme imports the setting for you.

    Here is more info on child theme: https://docs.generatepress.com/article/using-child-theme/

    Ok I read it, but just to be clear, can I assume that all I need to do is use the child theme from now on and leave the parent theme alone?
