Hello, I just bought and downloaded Booklium and first thing I notice, I am getting not 2 but 3 files:
Why is there is child theme, what is its purpose? I can see no difference. Also it is not mentioned in the documentation anywhere.May 2, 2022 at 11:31 pm #1298548J. DavisKeymaster
The child theme is added for the convenience of those users who want to override the default layouts or functionality of the parent theme or third-party plugins. Thus the child theme is used to override the files of the theme or even override files and functions of the third-party plugins and keep the changes even after theme or plugin update.

If I want to use the child them, do I make it ac tive instead of parent theme?

Hi Jeannette, yes, sure you need to activate the child theme to apply your customizations. Note: you also need to keep the parent theme installed too.
