Activate new theme to live site (2 posts)

    I would like to activate a child theme I have created on a site where I am using parent theme then that the child theme was built for.

    The problem I am facing is that I am unable of changing the theme options, page templates, widgets and menu without activating the theme or I don't know how.

    I built the child theme on a test server. I know that there are some plugins that help with designing with live site like http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/theme-test-drive/ but I don't think I am looking for that as my child theme is ready.

    The content on my test site is not perfect so that's why I don't want to copy it over to the live site.

    Thank you for any suggestions. I do think I know some stuff about WordPress so dont feel you need to dumb anything down.

    That's very odd, as soon as child is activated it should inherit all functionalities of the parent theme basically in right away. Maybe the child theme functions are preventing theme options/widget changes, check the functions.php and see what's going there.
