    Good day!

    I want to edit the file ...helium/plugins-config/config-youxi-portfolio.php - oviously within my child theme.

    However, if I copy the original file to ...helium-child/plugins-config/config-youxi-portfolio.php the changes made there are not being reflected on the site.

    Isn't wordpress supposed to automatically load every PHP file within the child theme folder, instead of the parent theme file? If I save my edit within the parent theme php (for testing purposes) they're working just fine.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Michael,

    Sorry for the delayed reply.
    As the file you pointed out is not a template, it is not loaded in that way.

    To edit this file, simply override the functions defined in the parent theme in your child theme.

    Thank you :)
