How do you work on a child theme once you've created it?

  • I’m trying to figure out how to modify column widths and such with my blog, and am using the theme SuperSlick. I tried to google how to do this and I found out about child themes, but now I’m a bit confused about how to use a child theme.

    Did you see this:

    Any changes you want to make, you’ll make in the child theme — by copying the parent file (or snippet of code for CSS changes) and making the changes in the child theme version of the file.

    If you are only going to make CSS changes, you could also just use a plug-in for custom CSS (jetpack for example has that included). Layout changes such as you mention are CSS. If you post a link to your site, someone can help you with the code to change to do those. You should also download and install Firebug — a Firefox add-on that is extremely useful for CSS work, among other things.
