Few years ago I started learning Wordpress and I created a page. I didn't know much about it then, therefore I didn't create child theme before I started making changes in my theme files. I know, I should think about it before ;) Now I want to make a little update on that page and I am looking how could I create a child theme to make modifications, and update the original theme...
I was thinking.
Can I create a folder via FTP transfer on my server.
I would name it THEME-CHILD.
In this folder I would copy the modified theme files. (the files that are currently in THEME folder, modified). all of them? or just the ones I am sure I changed, page.php, header.php, style.css...
I would change info in the style.css head, so it would call the parent theme css.. Then I would copy the original theme (I still have the .zip file of that theme in my archive, so its same version) in the existing folder THEME.
Then I would activate the child theme in my dashboard and hoped it works. Would it work? Or will I delete all my modifications?
Thank you so much for help!
