How to create a child theme
Remember, GIYF (Google is your friend).Mod
4.Add your custom CSS directly under the line that says /* Your modification goes here */.
Important: do not copy the entire style from the theme’s style.css file. Doing so will break a lot of things.
I’m not sure which part of the theme’s style.css file I’m supposed to copy (my modifications)Mod
How do you know what you are trying to modify? Have you installed the Firebug extension for Firefox? It makes figuring out these codes a snap. Here’s a video tutorial from Josh:
I generally just copy from Firebug and paste into my child theme stylesheet, and strip out any extraneous properties.
Am new to all this, I’ve been editing my Graphene parent theme,but now realise it should be done through a child theme.
I have read lots of forum info…but still doesn’t sink in!
I created a child theme through the template online from Prasanna SP,this went ok.
It ‘s in my themes folder,and I activated it.
I’m not sure what do do next,I looked into my digitalpacific host’s w/p content folder and there is a graphene child.
But I can’t change anything through my graphene options in graphene child theme.
Some of my images in front slider have changed size,but I can fix this if I can use the options in child …but to no avail.
I’m sure I have done something wrong,but what?
