    http://jossism.com

    this is the website.

    When I look up how to edit something eg. header font/post to pages, people keep saying i need a child theme, but im not sure if i am able to get one??

    Does that make sense?

    Thanks

    You need to create one, yes. You'll need to use FTP to access the site files on the server - that's where the theme directory is. Ask your hosting company for help with setting up FTP access - also see:

    Rff.

    Here's a video on how to create a child theme. It's pretty easy to do and it's the same for any theme. All changes should be done on a child theme so whenever you have an update to the theme, the changes you made are not overwritten.

    You will need FTP access in order to upload the file to the themes folder on your server.

    Hope that helps :)
