The update Genesis 3.0.0 brought to mind a question I've asked many times, always getting different answers.Because this update included some rather significant changes, it affected child themes in various ways, especially those whose designers weren't paying attention in advance (me).
Anyway, my question regards customizing child themes. I've been customizing Infinity Pro for several accounts and simply save it as a new name and make necessary changes accordingly. Is this the best way to do so? Am I correct that my customized theme does not pull from the original Infinity Pro? What if Infinity Pro makes updates to better accommodate Genesis, but I once again miss out. Where can I follow these updates to know what changes I should make to my child theme?
The issue with the naming was when designers changed the theme name in the stylesheet which didn't match the theme name in functions.php.
If you unzip the theme folder, you will see a readme.txt file in there where it lists what was updated in that child theme. From there you can determine whether or not you need to make those changes to your customized version of the child theme.
Most of the StudioPress child themes are being updated for Gutenberg. If you anticipate using Gutenberg then you have a lot of work to do to "update" your customized version.
Keep in mind, once you customize a child theme, technically it is no longer a version of the original child theme. I hope that makes sense.
