Child plugin? Making tweaks to plugins permanent

Hi guys, I've just updated to the latest version of Membership, it's great that it's moving forward, however this causes a bit of a problem - the tweaks that I have made to the plugin files are wiped out when I update!

I have to manually find the right files to edit and make the changes one by one by hand.

In the same way that you can have a child theme to stop this happening every time you update your theme, is it possible to do this with your plugins?

I've read a few articles online and I am not the only one with this trail of thought. I found a few obscure answers, but they heavily involve quite a bit of coding which I try to stay away from!

Has anyone got any ideas how to solve this? :slight_smile:
