You should be able to re-create/copy some of the template files & directories in order to make custom changes.
I’ve tried to come up with a quick/easier/safer way that one could accomplish tasks like this with core template files. This process should work with other themes as well.
This method will not be overwritten when the theme updates. You’ll just need to make sure to update your custom template pages whenever the default theme template is updated (only if the default template file had changed).
The easiest way would probably be something like this….
Note: The attached file contains the folders/files created from the above steps. You can unzip and then upload them directly in your child theme directory or create them manually. This will not work by placing them in the default child theme directory.
You’ll need the minimal files to accomplish this. First, create a similar directory structure in your child theme directory. I’ll refer to this as YOUR_CHILDTHEME in the example.
*** Note ***
In order to achieve this “easier” method, the child theme must be an actual child theme and not the built-in default child theme (i.e. ‘_dating’ for DA9). It is possible to do, but additional changes would be required and may not be worth extra headaches.
Keep in mind that this is just the basic setup for it and additional changes (i.e. re-styling some sections) may be required if anything breaks after a change is made.
