What is a Wordpress Child Theme? I am unable to make out the relationship between the child theme and a parent theme. Actually, I bought a theme and along with I also got a child theme. While comparing the file size between the two themes, I found that they are not similar. The Child theme is much smaller in size than the Parent theme. Now, what should I do? Which theme to use? I have uploaded both the theme and at present, I have activated the Parent theme. I just want to know

  1. Why do people use a child theme?
  2. When should I use a child theme? (Is it really necessary?)
  3. What are the pros and cons of using a child theme?
