    Hi,
    I would like to edit the generatepress parent theme files but retain the use of GPP and GPB (and the customizer potentially). Is this feasible? The main reason is that I prefer to use vscode with live server to edit and preview my sites – but love the Generatepress ecosystem – so dont wish to lose the benefits that it provides.

    Hi there,

    It’s never a good idea to edit the parent theme as it will be erased during updates.

    You would need to use a child theme:
    https://docs.generatepress.com/article/using-child-theme/

    Copy the file(s) you want to edit and paste in the child theme’s folder and edit that one.

    Let me know if this helps 🙂
