OK here is my question....
I have a professionally purchased theme that has a custom post type of "PortFolio" built into the theme.
The post type is ideal for what i'm trying to achieve in the website project but I wish to rename the actual post type to "Services" instead of "Portfolio". At the same time im planning to remove some of the fields in the post type but to also change the layout of the actual page too.
Within the theme itself there has been a lot of custom modifications, and what im worried about is that if I change any of these settings, when it comes around to updating the theme, I presume the settings will be overwritten??
I have setup a child theme for this project, and wanted to know if I make any changes to the functions within the child theme, when I eventually update the theme, will the function updates change too?
I know this may be a blindingly obvious question, but whats the best way to achieve this?
