    I have installed the Total theme and set up many of the pages/sections e.g. added team members to the team section and added testimonials to Testimonials section. If I switch to using a child theme of Total (as recommended by WordPress), will I lose all my settings e.g. team members, testimonials etc?

    It seems that way. I got round it by using the plugin Child Theme Configurator.
    Install it, use it, uninstall it. Nice and simple.

    Hi,

    The customizer will get lost on switching the theme to child theme. Please use this plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/customizer-export-import/ to export the setting from the parent theme and then import it into the child theme.
