I’m a newb and I’ve loaded and activated the enfold theme through wordpress. I read if I want to make modifications to the theme I should use a child theme so I downloaded the enfold child theme.
* Is there a way I can upload it via wordpress? I watched the video but it uses pc software and I’m on a mac, not familiar with ftp.
*Once I have the child theme installed do I import the demo pages to the child theme or the parent theme?
Thats all for now.
The programs I use in the video are available on both OS for free. You can however zip the child theme and upload it through the WordPress admin. You would still need to FTP to the folder to add in new files to the root folder if you wanted to do that so I would suggest getting comfortable with FTP.
You can read a bit more about child themes here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes
When you are using the child theme it works just like the normal theme except it is the active theme while the parent theme just sits in your themes directory. Pages, posts and everything else is part of WordPress and the theme sits on top of those.
