I had a child theme created by a freelancer from Elance. However, I don't understand why an update alert is showing on my Child Theme - I thought that the parent theme would show update alert. That same freelancer told me to just switch to parent and update parent then switch back. Is this correct? When I update the child theme I lose my customizations so I'm sure that you are not suppose to update a child theme - just the parent. However, why is the child theme even showing an update when I made it?
Thanks in advance for your replies.
