    The recommended way to make changes to Bootville Lite is to create a child theme and make the changes to that instead. Doing this ensures that you will be able to update Bootville Lite without loosing your custom changes.

    1. Create a new folder, name it whatever you want to name your child theme.
    2. Create a file inside the folder called style.css.
    3. Open style.css and past the following inside changing the details to fit your own theme

    /*
    	Theme Name: your_child_theme_name
    	Author: your_name
    	Author URI: 
    	Description: Child theme for Bootville Lite
    	Template: bootville-lite
    */
    
    @import url("../bootville-lite/style.css");
    
    /*--------------------------------------------------------------
    Theme customization starts here
    --------------------------------------------------------------*/

    4. Zip the folder using any type of zip program
    5. Visit Appearance > Themes click “Add New” then upload then browse for your new theme, upload an activate it.

    Another way to make CSS changes to Bootville Lite is to download a plugin such as Jetpack CUstom CSS module, or search the WordPress plugin directory for “custom CSS” there are several of them which all do the same thing.
