    Hi! I have been hacking the parent theme of my wordpress site for a while and would like to update wordpress without loosing my info. If I use the One-Click Child Theme to create a child theme of Twenty 10, will this save all my work and keep my website the same?

    Please let me know as I do not want the style of my blog to change and I don't want to loose all my work when I update.

    My website is: http://www.betterdecoratingbible.com

    Thanks!

    Nope.

    Do you have FTP access?

    WordPress.com states: We do not allow FTP (File Transfer Protocol) access to any WordPress.com blogs.

    I am able to access the cpanel of my domain if that is of any help.

    Do you have a WordPress.com blog?

    Your host appears to be 'unified layer'. Not sure why WordPress.com has been mentioned.

    Hi! I do not have a wordpress.com website so I guess I have access to my FTP through Host Gator's C Panel. What would I do now to be able to make a child theme and save all of my changes before updating wordpress?

    Thanks.

    See: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    Move the changes you've made to the child theme.
