I want to make sure I am staying organized during the creation of my first wordpress website. I don’t want to have any duplicate files or files that do not ‘matter’.
I’m using ‘A thematic child theme’ and I’m only in the basic editing of my style sheet now; however, I just became confused. Do I want to be editing the ‘default.css’ file? Or does everything I put into my ‘style.css’ file overwrite that? I just noticed that in my ‘thematic child’ style.css file, it has this comment:
“/* It’s better to actually copy over default.css into this file (or link to a copy in your child theme) if you’re going to do anything outrageous */”
I’m not sure what this means/what is considered ‘outrageous’. I’m making a site from scratch…should I delete the default.css file? It’s confusing me because when I am logged into my cPanel File Manager, there are so many files…I’m not sure which ones need to stay…because I don’t want to have a bunch of unused files sitting there…I only want the ones that are being used.
Sorry so long, and hopefully this post makes sense.
Many thanks to you for reading this.
