    Hello, i started building my website on a child theme generatepress based that i got from Adam at wpcrafter.com. I have been a long way from that day and i would like to migrate on raw generatpress child them with ou causing any changes to my website. I tried switchin theme to generatepress but something goes wrong and my main nav and some desing elements go crasy.

    Hope you can help thx.

    Hi Patrick,

    When changing themes (even child themes), it’s usually necessarily to:

    1. Reset your theme location in Customize > Menus.
    2. Sometimes necessary to reset your widgets – they can be moved in the Inactive Widgets area in Appearance > Widgets.
    3. Reset your Copyright message in the Customizer if you’re using it.

    Other than that, nothing else should go crazy. What design elements are acting weird for you?

    Ah yes, if you’ve made changes to the core files you’ll need to move those into your child theme or you’ll lose them.

    For functions, this might help: https://docs.generatepress.com/article/adding-php/

    In most cases editing core files isn’t necessary (hooks are awesome). If you let me know what modifications you’ve done I might be able to help you do it without the files.
