    Hi GP team,
    I’ve recently purchased the premium plugin. I’ve successfully installed it with the parent GP theme. Within the premium plugin, I’ve installed one of the predesigned themes from the site library. I have not customized this theme yet, but was I supposed to install a GP child theme in order to prevent losing any customizations when any updates are released? I tried the blank child theme but not everything seemed to work well when I tried customizing it or when I installed a predesigned theme from the site library. Thanks for clarifying!

    Hi there,

    Thanks for supporting GP πŸ™‚

    Simply speaking, if you are basically happy with the imported site and want to use the customizer or any of our add-ons to customize more, then you do not need a child theme.

    If you plan on adding lots extra CSS and PHP, then child theme might be a good idea.

    If you want to use a child theme with the site library, you will need to copy over the CSS in the Additional CSS field to child theme’s style.css

    Let me know if this helps πŸ™‚

    Thanks for your help Leo. What about more specific customization as in using a page builder? Sometimes you can use templates with these page builders. Is this still ok without a child theme as long as I don’t mess up with tons of extra CSS or PHP like you said?

    Hi there

    pagebuilder content or templates won’t require a child theme either. It is only necessary for theme customisations with CSS and PHP.

    Something to note: the Sites import CSS into the Customizer > Additional CSS, some a lot more than others.
