    Do not edit the Twenty Eleven theme. It is the default WordPress theme and having access to an unedited version of the theme is vital when dealing with a range of site issues. First create a child theme for your changes.

    I can’t work with childthemes because I’m a noob. I have read so many instructions, but still don’t get it. So I write down all my changes in Word and repeat them after an update.

    Does anyone know the solutions @ my questions? 😀

    Thanks, what should I do after downloading? Where do I have to upload it?

    And when I upload it, my website won’t be messed up right? My website will be the same as now..?

    Where do I have to upload it?

    Unpack the archive and upload the folder to wp-content/themes using FTP or use whatever file management application your host provides. Then activate it and start customising/configuring it.

    Ok, how do I activate it? won’t my current website be messed up after activating? And I have to customise it via notepad or something?

    how do I activate it?

    The same as any other theme – via Appearance -> Themes.

    won’t my current website be messed up after activating?

    No. You will just have to set up any custom background, header and/or menus again as these are stored on a pre-theme basis.

    And I have to customise it via notepad or something?

    Yes – although you can also use Appearance -> Editor (not an approach I personally recommend).

    No. You will just have to set up any custom background, header and/or menus again as these are stored on a pre-theme basis.

    Lol okay, so that’s kinda everything? I have a different banner on each page / every newsarticle. :s I can remove the childtheme whenever I want, so my normal site is back normal?

    Assuming that you are using the featured image functionality for this, this will still work in the child theme. You won’t have to set them up again.

    Do I have to change anything in the documents before I upload it? Because the link you sent me only shows documents with text, no CSS or something.

    Oh and I won’t lose my texts right? And all my articles?

    Ok nevermind, done! Thank you Esmi!!!

    I have one more question about childtheme. I made several changes in the normal theme, now I have my childtheme, the changes are still on my website. Has my childtheme copied them? I mean, are my changes save when I update WordPress or something? Or do I have to put all the changes in the document I uploaded?

    Now time to change everything :p Should I make a new topic with my questions? ;’)

    What you need to do now is move just your changes across to the child theme. Do you know exactly what changes you made?

    Ehm I copied the whole CSS, that’s not right I guess? :p I know almost all the changes yes. What should I do with changes in which I removed a code?

    that’s not right I guess?

    Nope. You want just your customised CSS in the child’s stylesheet – after the @import line.
