I downloaded a WP theme and edited some
php files and the
css file to my liking (trial and error), and have been using that on my website - but didn't create a child theme. This means any updates I do to the parent theme, will override my changes - so I've done no updates so far.
Is it possible to create a child theme now, somehow keeping the newly edited
php files and
css file that I possess by putting them in my child theme folder, (creating some kind of pointer
css file to have the child override the parent) and then updating the original parent? If so, how?
Or should I just scrap the theme entirely, look for a new theme and create a child immediately out of that before I make any edits?
