I am using a child theme on
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:
Is it possibly to export/import
the child theme from one GP-site
to another GP-site?

Child Themes are their own theme and are saved in your sites
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.May 24, 2022 at 4:49 am #2230721John
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 !May 24, 2022 at 5:28 am #2230763DavidStaffCustomer Support
Ok … i have to say i am little bit confused 🙂
Lets go back to basics.
This doc here explains adding a child theme:
And it includes a link to a blank child theme:
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.May 24, 2022 at 5:31 am #2230768John
Yes, David, I think I added a blank child theme.
In fact, that had to have been the case.
“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.May 24, 2022 at 5:38 am #2230778John
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:

That worked, David.
Thank you !May 24, 2022 at 5:57 am #2230814
