I have published a website and using the WordPress Visula Editor I have changed such things as font colour and paragraph styles.
The template is Twenty Ten.
Various plugins and widgets have been included in the site.
The site is http://www.rsara.asn.au
I would like to create a child theme using the One Click Child Theme plugin so I can further refine the formatting but I have read some blogs that say creating a child theme with this plugin broke their website.
I understand that the CSS of a theme should not be edited because theme updates would lose the editing.
Am I right in assuming that the formatting in my website is in the HTML markup and this formatting has not changed the CSS? Therefore the formatting would be retained in a child theme and the formatting, widgets and links would still be on the page when the child theme is created.
I am proceeding cautiously because it would be a disaster if I have to recreate the site from scratch.
