Why use a Child Theme?
Here are a few reasons:
- If you modify our theme, you will loose all the changes you made if you decide to update Beam theme to latest version.
- It might speed up your development time.
- It’s a great way to get started if you are just learning WordPress, HTML, CSS or PHP.
Beam Child theme inherits the functionality of Beam parent theme and allow you to modify, or add to the functionality of Beam Theme. Instead of modifying Beam theme files directly, use child theme and override Beam style and functionality from within.
It’s the best, safest, and easiest way to modify an existing theme, whether you want to make a few tiny changes or extensive changes. (source: wordpress.org)
