themes update clarification

Hi !

Just a question since now the child theme is included in the main theme folder.

For proper install, I must extract the child from main folder, and upload it as separate folder in my theme folder isn't it ?

Thanks :slight_smile:

    @Aphrodite The child theme should be included in the theme download by itself in a folder called Themes.

    Example:
    bp-community
    bp-community-child

    Both need uploaded to the wp-content/themes and only the child theme should be activated.

    Hope that helps

    Yes, when you update the main theme it doesn't affect the changes you do to the child theme.

    I've found working with child themes is definitely worth the time and effort to learn. On one of my sites I have 3 different child themes all working off a main theme. The main theme is Twenty-Ten that comes as the default to wordpress now.

Thank NAME, for their help.
