I just bought Avada and inside the .zip contains a child-theme folder with a blank functions.php and blank style.css. What is this for?

My guess is that you could install this child theme and the style.css override the original style.css from the parent theme? But what if I were to change the header.php? Or index.php? Or comments.php? Do I copy and paste the header.php, etc into the child theme folder then edit it there?

What if I wanted to edit an image like /avada/images/favicon.ico Do I copy and paste the edited favicon to /avada-child-theme/images/favicon.ico

Please help me understand. Thanks!

Ah, I should have known to just Google Child Theme :chuckle: It’s just that the Envato Forums have always been a great resource in the past, even Google Search slipped my mind!
