We’ve modified the uua services plugin to change the display a bit. Is there a way to place this in our child theme so that we don’t have to redo the mods each time the plugin is updated?

Hello,

There isn’t a native way to achieve this the way there is with Child Themes, but you could create a plugin that extends the functionality of the uua services plugin and potentially incorporates your changes.
