    Editing a file within the includes folder with a child theme

    Hey guys,

    I've searched everywhere, but can't seem to find the solution.

    I'm trying to modify includes/sidebar-contact.php, but obviously I don't want to change the core file.

    I duplicated it and put it in an "includes" folder in my child theme, but it doesn't seem to be taking any effect.

    How can I specify which one I want to use? I tried doing an include_once function in my functions.php file, but that makes it show up twice.


    Any help?


    Thanks
