I’ll attempt to provide a crash-course overview of what the IndieWeb looks like from a WordPress perspective.
Hi Davey, the safest way to implement something like this is to create a child theme of Autonomie, and add your changes to the functions.php file of the child theme. This will protect your customisations from updates to the base theme in most cases.
