We have provided a child theme package ready for you to use if you wish to make changes to files while keeping them through updates. The child theme is included within the main download folder, and is named “avas-child.zip” all you need to do is extract and upload this into the themes folder or add it as a new theme from the admin panel, and then activate the child theme in Appearance > Themes from the WordPress menu.
We’ve included the child theme CSS file ready for you to add your own styles if you’d prefer to do it here rather than in the custom CSS box within the theme options. If you are adding styles here, but aren’t seeing them on the front end, try adding !important to the end of the declaration. This is sometimes needed to override the dynamic CSS styles that are generated from the theme options customizations.
We’ve also included a child theme functions.php file, which you can use to add your own PHP functions or override functions from the parent theme.
