Best practices for changing plugin styles

Hey There,

So, I'm just wondering what the best way would be to customize the look of the events+ plugin. I've already asked if it's possible to add a featured image in another post but what I'm wondering is if WPMU has a specific way they would like styles to be changed so that when the actual plugin is updated, customizations aren't lost each time. Is there a system or process for doing that? e.g. setting up a child plugin, or something like that?

Thanks,

James.

    Greetings James,

    Thank you for the questions.

    Is there a system or process for doing that?

    With themes there is indeed a child theme for doing this and for plugins you could always permission the modified file 444 read only but then you will need to FTP the updates into place as the auto updates to the best of my knowledge use remove directory which would still delete the files - hence the need to use FTP which will not over write the read only files.

    setting up a child plugin, or something like that?

    There is no such thing for plugins.

    Thank you for being a WPMU DEV Community Member!

    Cheers, Joe
