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.April 28, 2017 at 9:24 am #311586TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
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?April 28, 2017 at 9:34 am #311594Patrick

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.April 28, 2017 at 9:47 am #311610Patrick
