I have been working on localhost with a theme that was already installed on live server. After i completed my mods, uploaded the files to themes folder in wp-content but to my disappointment, the same old non-customized theme was showing up. Then I thought if I add my custom css codes to css editor then it will work fine but even after that nothing was showing up and I ended up with a totally messed up site. I tried to empty all the caches but still no luck. Before installing my custom theme, I actually deleted all the files associated with the old theme and then re-installed my own custom theme. For the sake of information, I am using Genesis Framework and I modified Genesis Sandbox HTML5 child theme. It works like a magic on my localhost but I don't know how to get it working.
Please help me. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks for reading.
