    Hello,

    I have successfully overridden some of the files within the public folder, mostly so that I could apply some of the css changes to them. But I was wondering if there is a better way to do this within my theme so that I wouldn’t lose those modifications after an update. Thanks!

    Yes- you can use a child theme, and locate the CSS elements you wish to changes, and put those changes in your style.css file in your child theme.
    Or am I misunderstanding your question?

    Thanks for your reply, basically what I meant is as the same as overriding the template files, since some of the files within the public folder are somehow controlling the structure of the dashboard, overriding the template files only wouldn’t make the dashboard look completely like how we want it to, so we figured that modifying for instance “public/partials/helpers/table/wcvendors-pro-table.php” get us the perfect result. The only thing that bothers us is where to have them within the child theme.

    I see- these are not css changes or template files. They are core files.
    Core files should be modified using the many built-in filters whenever possible. Otherwise, as you fear, they will not be update safe, and you will need to re-apply the modifications each time you update WC Vendors or WC Vendors Pro.

    Honestly I would have to see what you have done- or at least some of it- to be able to tell you if those changes can be made in a manner that would be update safe and keep you from having to modify core files.

    We will definitely share once we done, so we are just trying to change the look of the dashboard, nothing nerdy!!! Thanks, anyway.
