Hi there, alchymyth.
My child theme is the current theme in use by my blog.
Yes, pages.php is a template. It's from TwentyTen, although I've made a few edits. All the .php files are in the directory wp-content/themes/2010-child
So it sounds like my problem is the fact that I didn't edit the headers for the php files? I've found a lot of information about changing the header for style.css (which I did) but I'm not sure what I need to do for my php files. The theme name is 2010-child. Just not sure where I'd put it in... If you know, could you tell me exactly what changes I need to make (I'm new to all of this). Here's my pages.php header:
* The template for displaying all pages.
* This is the template that displays all pages by default.
* Please note that this is the WordPress construct of pages
* and that other 'pages' on your WordPress site will use a
* different template.
* @package WordPress
* @subpackage Twenty_Ten
* @since Twenty Ten 1.0
Thanks so much for any help! Been trying to figure this one out for days.
