    While you can accomplish a great deal of customization and integration with ServicesPro straight out of the box, some may need to dig into the code to achieve much more advanced hacks. This can certainly be done, but shouldn’t be done to the main theme files directly or you won’t be able to receive new theme updates without overwriting those customizations.

    Instead, use a child theme.

    Adding a child theme is very simple:

    1. Download servicespro-child.zip, open it, make the necessary customizations, and rezip it
    2. Log into your WP admin
    3. Navigate to Appearance > Themes
    4. Install and activate it like you would any other theme
    5. While ServicesPro won’t be active as the main theme any longer, it still needs to remain in the /themes/ folder
