I am trying to keep things simple but it has turned out to be quite the time sucker.
My plan is to setup a Child theme for Twenty Ten because I will be cloning some very specialized sites.
So here is what I have been doing. I have a test site setup and I activate my Twenty Ten theme. I then click the customize link and then I make some tweaks to get it looking like I want. Click the "Save & Publish" button and then I check it in another tab. My changes look great.
I then load up the style.css file from the "twentyten" them folder and I do not see any of the changes that I made.
I checked the index.php, header.php, function.php files looking for the CSS changes but none have them. I was under the impression that they would be in the style.css. But they are not.
So being the tester that I am. I copied the only theme folder I have in the test blog to my local computer. I then setup another test blog zap all of the other theme folders and then I FTP my locally stored theme into the new test blog.
Load up the new test site and all I see is the original looking Twenty Ten theme. YET on my original test blog I see my changes.
Where are the CSS modfications being stored?
Certainly not in the style.css file.
So does the Customize link save changes elsewhere other than the style.css?
Remember, I am doing the changes now and I will apply the changes to a style.css in a child theme. All I need right now is find those enhancements that I made using the Customize link.
Obviously, I am missing something here si I hope someone can put me back on track.
