Late addition of a Child Theme (5 posts)

    I'm pretty sure before I even ask, that I am in for a lot of work to rectify this situation but I will ask anyway just incase their is a way to fix my goof.
    I have built a large-ish website based on a theme i purchased from TF.
    I always activate the Child Theme first and formost, then do my thing.
    But this time I didn't notice until the very end that I had not activated the Child Theme. Yes, I hung my head in disbelief.
    So my question is, am I going to have to rebuild the whole thing on a child Theme or is there ANY way I can get out of having to do this?
    There is full customization all the way from front to back and virtually nothing is stock, I also have a blog that is already active.
    I think I can feel the answer, but matbe someone can throw me a good tip.

    What did you modify, templates? PHP Functions? JS files?

    Layout, CSS, no JS, a lot of the pages use a plugin gallery that I added, custom fonts, custom sliders.

    What OS are you running? If you can download the original theme again, you can run a file comparing program on the two versions to help you figure out what changes you've made where.

    It is hosted on a normal CPanel Linux server, I have the original theme file, as you can always get updates from ThemeForest.
    I don't have any local server version, it was built on the Linux server.
