Switching Rife Free Child theme to Rife Pro Child theme

If you are not using a child theme, then skip this section.

With Rife Pro, you get access to Child theme dedicated to Rife Pro especially.

Child themes that we add with Rife Free & RIfe pro are very simple, prepared for easy overwriting theme features, languages translation or other modifications.

Generally, both Child theme(for Free & Pro versions) are identical. They only differ in reference to the Parent theme. So they mention different slug to the parent theme.
