Being so new to this, didn’t realize that I should have made a child theme and now I guess I need one but I have made so many changes to my xstore site, I am unsure what is going to happen. I have not updated anything for fear of losing all the hours I have put into this site. Will I lose the changes I have made? Is there a recommended service or plugin that can create the child theme for me?Site URL: hidden Theme version: xstore
Thank you for your question.
It depends on what changes you have made. If you changed any files from the parent theme “Xstore” so obviously you will loose all the changes after update since you will replace all theme files. To prevent this situation you should use child theme and do all your changes there. If you made some changes in the Dashboard (adding pages, products, theme options etc.) you won’t loose anything after update.
Also, note that after activating the other theme in WordPress (switching to child theme for example) your widgets configuration may be lost. So after doing this you will need to go to Appearance -> Widgets add widgets to your widgets areas.
