    Great information and will be a big help. I am getting ready to buy a style for my new XF site and knew about wanting to create a child but didn't know about a child of that. I never thought about this. Thanks for the guide.

    EXCELLENT TUTORIAL: This is a must read even for seasoned developers. It is a good reminder that keeping it simple can be best. No need to create a new theme every time a upgrade comes along, just make a child of the parent theme.

    Excellent! Mike is an excellent theme designer. This guide is really detailed and very helpful. I went from not knowing how to upgrade, to knowing everything needed to perform my first upgrade in a matter of minutes. Thank you for all your hard work.
