I've made numerous changes to my theme via the CSS block in Theme Options. Wondering if there's a seamless method to migrate these changes to a Child Theme. I don't have much coding knowledge but I suspect there must be a way to grab a version of the blog as it is (modified) and save that as the child theme. Maybe?

Many good text editors have a "Compare Files" funciton, so use that to compare an unedited copy of the css file and your edited copy and save the differences for your child theme.

  • Thank you. Can you suggest one?

  • Windows. Maybe there's a firefox add-on or plugin?

  • Use WinMerge, it doesn't matter which editor you use then. Just be sure to have backups of both the original and your customised version :)
