Extending the theme

If you want to take your customizations even further and extend our HTML templates, you can do it using our template system.

Extending core templates

By extending the core templates, we mean our framework templates or the Utillz Core plugin.

Copy templates from Utillz Core plugin /utillz-core/templates/[template-name] to your child theme in /templates/[template-name].

Extending the theme templates

Copy templates from the theme /[theme-name]/templates/[template-name] to your child theme in /templates/[template-name].


Do not edit these files within the plugin itself or the main theme, as they are overwritten during the upgrade process and any customizations will be lost. All customizations should be added in your child theme.

Adding custom CSS code

The CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) code is the way to style your web content. There are different ways to add custom CSS code and override our styles. We recommend using the style.css inside your child theme’s root directory. Find the basics of CSS.

Additionally, you can use the default WordPress option, by going to Appearance Customize Additional CSS. The styles you enter there will be saved to your database.

How to add some extra PHP code

There are tons of WordPress snippets and articles that allows you to add more features to your website, but where to add these? The best place to add such PHP functions is the functions.php file of your child theme, located in the child theme’s root directory.
