How to override JavaScript files in child theme?

Posted by Prem Tiwari | Updated on

Child themes only override php files (like header.php) that are included with functions like get_template_part or get_header, etc.

The correct way to add scripts to WordPress is with wp_enqueue_script. If your parent theme uses this, you can override the JS files by using wp_dequeue_script and enqueuing your own.
