Updating a site that did not use Child Theme
I have a new client who has an existing site that is a customized version of Twenty Ten. Having not developed the site myself (I always use a child theme), I have no idea how many templates or what styles were customized, but the name is still Twenty Ten and the WordPress version is 3.5.1. I backed up the site and need to upgrade it. I know all customizations will get overwritten with the theme named Twenty Ten. I need to update without going back and trying to turn this into a child theme, since I don’t know what’s been customized. I think all I need to do is copy the theme folder, change the name of the theme folder, and change the name of the theme name in style.css. And then I should be safe to update to WordPress 3.7.1. Is this correct?
