Where I will write custom CSS code?
So our suggestion is do all CSS customization on the Theme Customize or a plugin. If you are using WordPress 4.7 you have a new option in the theme customize to add custom CSS. In this way your custom CSS code will not loss.
I need some PHP work, Where I will write that?
We have build a plugin call "Steed Customization" You can download the plugin from here Download Steed Customizar. Now install the plugin as normal installation. In the plugins there are total 4 files:
- steed-customizar.php Don't do any changes on this file.
- functions.php Write any php code here and It will work like theme's functions.php file
- style.css Write any CSS code and it will work like child theme style.css file
Please note: It’s recommended that you make a backup of the theme prior to updating BackupBuddy is recommended to backup and restore your whole site.
From your WordPress dashboard, navigate to Themes. Activate a different theme, choose delete files for your theme, then upload the new theme and activate.
It seems scary but you really won’t lose any of your data. The only exception is if you have made edits to theme files like header.php, footer.php etc. These changes will need to make again to the new files. But all of your content and theme settings are preserved.
Alternatively, you may want to use a plugin to automate backing up your current theme and uploading the new version: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/easy-theme-and-plugin-upgrades/
