I was creating a wordpress theme based on Twenty Fifteen and then someone suggested me to use a child theme instead.
What's the biggest difference? I've heart both parent and child themes
functions.php will be loaded.
Themes usually load scripts and CSS files directly from the functions.php file. Does this mean it will load the files from the parent theme in any case ? Or it will look for those files in the child theme before loading them from the parent?
Will I have total control over the theme by just creating and applying a child theme? Or Will I be restricted in some way?
