Hi, I’ve started using Devdmbootstrap3 with the Swatcher child theme but I’m not sure how to customize code while preserving the ability to install any future update of the Swatcher child. Can I create a child theme of a child theme? Mostly I’m making changes/additions to functions.php.
There is only so far one can go with putting on layers of customization. Child theme of child theme doesn’t exist yet so my promise to you will be extensive documentation of any Swatcher Updates with a clearly detailed and defined list of ALL changes so that you can implement them on your project.
At this point I am only kicking around two features and it isn’t’ moving very fast. So I wouldn’t worry. 🙂
You might simply section off your custom functions.php code and put it all at the bottom so you can quickly chop it out if there is an update.
Ok, I’ve put all my customized code in an include so it’s just one line to carry over whenever you’ll update the child theme.
I’ve got another question: is there a way I can override css default values set by Bootstrap (say for navbar colors) without editing the Bootstrap core files? I’m loading my own CSS file but it’s not overriding whatever classes are already defined in Bootstrap.
