    Child Theme Question

    Hi

    I've read up loads on Child Themes on the forum. Basically i had been working on the jobroller theme and modifying both the .css and php files without being aware that there is such a thing as child themes available.

    So basically i've created a child theme, and copied all the files from the main theme into the child theme folder and i will continue to work using the child theme.

    I have modified a few of the php files to remove and re-arrange the layout of some of the items i see.

    My question is that when the update is released - what exactly happens?

    Obviously my css files and php files will remain version 1.0 but how do i make sure that the mods stay intact but also make sure that any updated code and extra functionality is included in my child theme?

    Will i have to use something like winmerge and go through each file individually to see what the updates are and manually copy the code to my code in my child theme?

    Hope the question makes sense but i would really appreciate a reply.
