I am trying to learn how to do this web design thing properly instead of just having pretty sites that I have no clue to how they work.
I have been reading a lot of these forum and there is ne thing I don’t understand. It’s when people say the you should have a ‘child theme’ and instead of modifying the actual theme I should copy what I need to the child theme.
Now I get confused, it all looks like alphebet soup to me. What do I copy and when some one says to copy the whole page and ‘leave out such and such pieces’ – I try but nothing ever happens?
Perfect example is that I am trying to modify Twenty Eleven and I am trying to ‘hack’ the page titles so they aren’t seen.
The thread reads that there is one particular line of code that I must extract. But instead I should copy the whole file to my childs style.css and then remove the offending line of code. I have done it so many times and it NEVER works unless I remove it in the main style.css.
So what am I doing wrong? What does it mean when someone says copy the whole page? Does it mean all the pjp characters and punctuation around the words or do I just copy everything or do you leave out some sections???
