    Hi guys,

    I created my website a while ago (codrutamarin.com), and edited the theme to suit my needs at the time, uploaded everything, twitched a bit online.

    I have one question (and sorry for it being very dumb): HOW do I backup my EDITED theme? is there a way to download just the theme (including any edits i've done) from WP? Am i missing smting, bc I dont see that option anywhere?

    I backed up my content, but that just looks odd without the same framing.

    Hope you get what I'm asking. Please help!

    You can download a copy of the theme folder to your local computer using FTP.

    BTW, you'd be well-advised to move your changes to a child theme so they are not lost when the theme is updated - http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    Thanks for answering! I downloaded XAMPP as an FTP, but for the life of me I can't see how I can download a theme from my website to computer on it.... used to work closer with XAMPP i guess I forgot some stuff.

    I'll read about the child themes, and ty!
