    2. i downloaded the child and activated it and changed it’s name / author and so on… and when i checked the changes in i did so the change and like it was my theme…. but when i checked the site in it showed me yours and not the child…

    Hi there,

    1 & 2: This article should help:

    3: Not sure what you mean? That site isn’t using GP?


    what i mean is that when i change the child name and author in the child file
    and when i look at this website it still showes your theme name….
    for an example the desired outcome you can see in the picture:
    if you will look at where i changed it:…
    meaning it will show my name and information on the child…. so should i change something else?
    maybe in the parent theme?

    It depends on how their website checks for the theme. It’s likely they they coded it to display the parent theme instead of the child theme, as that’s more useful to the person wondering.
