question about transitioning to a child theme

A theme is misbehaving on I have support access on. If I created a child version of the existing theme using a child theme generator could that potentially fix any issues or would that just bring them over with it?

    Hi cornelius_butler

    How are you today?

    The Child theme shouldn't fix any theme issue. It allows you to create your fixes and/or extend the theme.

    It means you can create your page structure for example and keep updating the theme without losing any setting or override any changes.

    You can learn more about child theme on

    I see you are using two pages builder, Cornerstone and Elementor, I suggest you use only one to avoid conflicts.

    However, if your theme is having too many issues, I suggest you contact the theme provider, check if the theme has the latest release version, also check if it is compatible with the new WordPress or your PHP version.

    Best Regards,
