    Hi Tom & Team

    I read a great review of GP (Woorkup.com), and he mentioned that he โ€œno longer has to use a child themeโ€ with GP. It says he can update WordPress and not lose a single customization. It was dated jan of 2018.

    Is this a new feature as of GP Version2+ ?

    I checked the GP child theme download area, and I see there is no dating on the download.

    I am using the GP child theme on my sites so far, to avoid losing custom codes. Is that no longer necessary?

    Do you recommend using the GP child theme for any other considerations?

    Congrats on GP being the reviewers โ€œbest theme in 10 years!

    Hi there,

    Child theme has never been necessary – there are alternative plugins you can use to add CSS and PHP so they are saved through udpates:

    For example, CSS and PHP can be added with the following plugins so that it’s saved through updates:
    https://docs.generatepress.com/article/adding-css/#simple-css
    https://docs.generatepress.com/article/adding-php/#code-snippets

    If you have lots of custom code though we would still suggest child theme.

    And if you are already using a child theme then there is really no point changing it ๐Ÿ™‚

    Let me know if this makes sense ๐Ÿ™‚
