Total newbie here with not a lot of "tech smarts" but I have some basic questions about creating a child theme.
I have a blog up and running--it does well but I want to tweak the design. I've uploaded Instant WordPress on my computer and have created a child theme folder and css style sheet in that folder and have activated the theme locally. All good.
Now, here come the questions:
Do I need to import my current blog to my locally-hosted blog? That would make sense from a design standpoint but since it may take me weeks to finish a new design, what do I do when I want to update the live blog? Do I need to import the live blog each time to my locally-hosted blog?
Do I tweak fonts, colors, header, and so forth locally and then simply move the css style folder to my live theme folder?
What are the pros and cons? What am I missing? As you can see, I'm very unsure of where to go from here!
As always, truly grateful for your wisdom and advice!
