How can I switch to a child theme?

In this article we describe how you can switch to a child theme when you have already created contents, layouts and design that you do not want to loose:

  • Keep the current theme active
  • Make a backup using the 1-click back-ups options in Greyd.Hub
  • Download the design via Greyd.Hub
  • Now switch the theme
  • Import the design you've just exported -> the design should now already look like before, but not the entire site, since all your WP templates are still missing. These now need to be assigned to your child theme
  • Open the tab "Appearance" > "Theme Assets" in your backend. You will now see all templates of your stage. The missing templates should be grayed out.

  • Select these templates and template parts (not the custom styles, since we've already got those) and use the bulk action "assign to current theme".

  • Now your site should look like as it did before switching the theme.
