    Hello !

    I am using a child theme on
    http://www.understand-culture.com

    I have a coder in the UK.
    His customization is deleted
    whenever the WP version is updated.

    He created a child theme.
    Most likely as recommended by you folks !

    I just created a new site:
    http://www.discuss-culture.com

    Is it possibly to export/import
    the child theme from one GP-site
    to another GP-site?

    Thanks !

    John

    Hi there,

    Child Themes are their own theme and are saved in your sites /wp-content/themes folder.
    So you can access that folder via FTP, download it to your desktop, zip it up. And then you can upload it as a theme to any of your sites.

    I googled “Generatepress child theme.”
    Sent me to the GP-description.

    From there I can’t remember what I did.
    So many keystrokes today since 8 a.m.

    I suspect that I created a new child theme.
    I then activated it.
    It seems to have not messed anything up.

    When creating apply-culture.com
    do you suggest I take the same approach
    or do what you recommend above?

    I assume that there are advantages to
    taking your approach.

    Let me know. Thanks, David !

    Ok … i have to say i am little bit confused 🙂

    Lets go back to basics.
    This doc here explains adding a child theme:

    https://docs.generatepress.com/article/using-child-theme/

    And it includes a link to a blank child theme:

    https://generatepress.com/api/themes/generatepress_child.zip

    You can simply upload the .zip into your Dashboard > Themes and activate that child theme.

    —————

    I assumed your developer had added code to the Child Theme and you wanted to use it on other sites.

    Yes, David, I think I added a blank child theme.
    In fact, that had to have been the case.

    You write:
    “I assumed your developer had added code to the Child Theme and you wanted to use it on other sites.”

    Yes, that is the case.
    Which means I need to take the route you recommend above.
    I’ll do that now. And let you know how it goes.

    Ok, no problem getting to that folder with
    the name: generatepress_child.

    However, I am not sure how to make a
    copy to my desktop. I don’t see that option.

    If mess it up it messes up the site:
    understand-culture.com
