Installing the CBOX Child Theme
We strongly advise you to NEVER make changes to the CBOX Theme in any way. You will lose all these changes when you update CBOX and you’ll end up with a big headache maintaining the theme over time.
It’s good practice to never change the CBOX theme directly, so always work from a Child Theme. If you are not a developer and are following along with a tutorial written on CBOX.org this post will guide you through the basics!
Step 1: Downloading the CBOX Child Theme

Step 2: Activating the CBOX Child Theme
Now that you’ve downloaded the CBOX Child Theme you need to upload and activate it. You can either do this through the build-in uploader in WordPress (found under Appearance > Themes > Install Themes > Upload) or through your FTP client.
Once you’ve uploaded the theme you simply need to activate it.
Important: The first time you activate your CBOX Child Theme you need to set up your widgets and your menus again. This in inconvenient but this is sadly how WordPress works!
Step 3: Start making those changes!
Chances are that you’ve found this tutorial through one of our CBOX tutorials, so go back to where you came from and start customising your CBOX community!
