I wish we were brave enough to download the updated version! This was our first WordPress experience. Unfortunately, we modified your theme just a bit. We made a few changes to colors and backgrounds. Soon after making a few changes, we realized it was important to create a child theme, so we did. Your theme was a great first experience. I spent hours (I’d say at least 20) investigating different themes, and yours seemed up-to-date and flexible. Maybe soon we’ll download the new theme offline and then modify our child theme and then upload both and have a site that is ready for future updates.
Well, I’m a little nervous about upgrading because we did unfortunately make a few changes to the main theme before realizing that it made sense to start a child theme. One day we’ll get brave and do an off-line update and make a correct child theme from the new main theme. Actually, I still don’t really understand child themes!
Thanks–after looking on WordPress’s support pages, I saw a visual of how to slide the sub-pages under the main pages. I never understood custom menus, and I think I’m not even using one to its full extent, but I indented (just grab and slide it over!!) my sub-page over and it works now! Basically, if there are other people out there like me, (very non-technical) here’s where I saw what to do:
scroll down to “Changing the Order of Menu Items and Creating Sub-Menus” on this page: http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/#creating-a-custom-menu
(the help page that I found is on WordPress.com but I’m guessing it’s also on WordPress.org
Text from the WP support page:
At any time, you can change the order and placement of menu items. Drag and drop the items up and down to change the order of menu items. Drag and drop the items left and right (as shown below) to create sub-menu items.
Now I’m going to have a lot more fun checking out your theme and others.
