Maybe you can help me with the whole child theme.
My themes creator has also created a child theme (twenty ten- buddy press). I have the child theme installed but not currently active. I have read articles on child thems and just not quite grasping it. To date I have gotten around a child theme by just keeping backups of my style css, etc, in the event of updates, then re-pasting the changes.
When I applied changes in the parent theme to go to a 3 column it did not work, widgets went to the left and page did not align correctlty and no three column. I have activated the child theme to take a peek at it, just looks very raw, menus all messed up, etc… then went back to the parent. I guess my question is. To make changes in the child theme, what else has to be done? Do I need to ftp this into my wp directory? Do I activiate the child theme and work from there then it automatically goes into my parent theme, then go back to the parent theme?Sorry, this whole things has be confused.Just don’t understand how one goes to the other, Thanks for any help.
*Also, I have not gone to thirty ten 3 column format as it says it is not BP compatible
