    In Woocommerce, I need a bespoke version of the customer-processing-order.php email template, so clicked to the copy button in Woocommerce. The file is now copied into /wp-content/themes/generatepress/woocommerce/emails folder.

    The Woocommerce folder gets created, and the template copied in. The edit I need is done its working well.

    So the question: Will this /woocommerce/ folder get changed or deleted with a Generate Press theme update, or will it be left alone?

    I have used WordPress and Woocommerce for many years, and so far avoided child themes, instead use plugins to add PHP, js and css. I know that if I create a child theme the folder should be safe, but I really don’t want that.
    Thanks. LenW

    Hi there,

    The entire theme folder is deleted during updates so the newly created folder would be deleted as well.

    You’d need a child theme in this case:

    Thanks, I will consider a child theme. The Booster for Woocommerce plugin has a module that allows editing templates, and stores them separately, so that is now an option, just taking a look at that.
