    Hi,

    I want to move my main site to GP and wonder what the best course of action is (when speed and clean code are my priority).

    To try to copy the original site design with the Customizer, and for what it can’t do, use a child-theme (custom.css, functions.php, single.php, etc)?

    Or is it better (code- and speed wise) to use “Additional CSS” in the customizer and the plugin “Code Snippets”?

    I’m just wondering what’s best when you have to copy a site design, but want to code to stay clean and fast.

    Thank you!

    Just to add a quick thing:

    Is it recommended to start with GP 2.0 right away?

    Hi there,

    Really depends on how much custom CSS and PHP you have.

    But yes I would guess child theme is best way to go for you: https://docs.generatepress.com/article/using-child-theme/

    And yes 2.0 is the way to go 🙂
