Support » Fixing WordPress » Only code shows in browser developer tools

  • Resolved HelenNovice


    I am just learning WP through The tutorial shows using developer tools to make changes to parent (we’re creating child theme). I’m at work and don’t have Chrome, but in IE8 the developer tools only show me the html and CSS. In the tutorial they have all the parent files html showing and the front side that viewers see (split screen). I can’t figure out how to see the actual site and the code. The screen is split but the right side is blank.

    I have not set up localhost yet. Is this the problem?

    I don’t have a site yet to send a link on & my WP class site is set to private.

    I have created my child theme to @import the parent theme. I can see it when I go to my wp-admin area, but not when using developer tools.

    I thought I could use Dreamweaver, but I can’t find where to find the parent files of themes to set up for Dreamweaver.

    Sorry for so many questions, just want to follow tutorial but can’t see my site like I do in wp-admin. (Yes I have FTP the files so they’re out there somewhere) 🙂
