Difference between child theme and direct editing?
Hello. What is the difference between creating a child theme to edit your templates and directly editing the files in node_modules/nodebb-theme-persona/templates?
I created a child theme for may nodebb but it was buggy (user error on my fault ) so i just replaced the persona templates. What are the pros and cons?
Persona templates will be overwritten when you update.
@pitaj how often does persona update?
@dunlix multiple times weekly... But it only changes on your machine when you decide to run the upgrade script to upgrade dependencies.
If you only have small changes to make, use the customize plugin.
@julian update script? as in
sudo apt-get update
? or update through ACP?
@pitaj oh ok
