  • Hello there,

    Nothing happens as long as you don’t change the Template: GeneratePress info. 😄

  • Okay, thank you. And what happens if I change the folder name of the GeneratePress child theme to a custom name?

  • Hi there,

    the folder name should not matter as long as the Template name is left intact.

  • Thank you, that’s all.

  • Glad to be of help
