Firstly, I'm very much a
newbie' at using WordPress so please try to keep any replies with advice or instructions as simple and conversational as possible.(i.e.jargon-free')
In accordance with early advice I have set up a sub-domain of my new website in which I've now developed a new free WordPress theme (`Graphene)' along with few plug-ins such as Dynamic Content Gallery. After many weeks of painstakingly building and testing this new theme - mainly by trial and error it has to be said - I'd now like to make an EXACT copy of this website and theme (including the custom headers, Dynamic Content Slider, custom colours, etc. to firstly save the whole thing back to my local home computer for safekeeping and secondly to then load it back to my main domain to start publishing the website.
I have already tried using both the full and partial backups available via Cpanel to firstly take a backup from the sub-domain to my home computer and then upload this back to the main domain but I cannot get an EXACT copy. (I get the `bare bones' of the theme itself OK but without the various amendments I've made to it).
I have also tried copying the
theme' folder only from the sub-domain back to my home computer (usingFilezilla') then uploading this folder into the `Themes' folder on the main domain. Again, no joy there.
Can anyone explain where I'm going wrong and what I need to do?
Many thanks in anticipation for any help you can give as it's driving me potty!
