    Hello Ron,

    Frist, thank you for creating the Frontier theme…. it is wonderful! Frontier is by far the easiest and flexible theme I have used and I have tested and used mucho themes!

    My big question is:

    I built my website before you offered the child theme. How do I go about using the child theme after the fact?

    So, do I need to:
    1. Activate another theme (wp default) (which will make Frontier parent theme inactive.)
    2. Install and activate the child theme.

    How does this effect all the settings I have already created on the parent theme? Do I need to copy my settings over to the child theme? If so, how do I go about this.

    Thank you!!!!

    To use any child theme out there all you need to do is upload it like you would with any theme then activate.

    I built my website before you offered the child theme.

    Child themeing isn’t a new concept or even unique to my themes. They’ve been in use long before I’ve submitted a theme to wordpress.org. If a user finds it really necessary to use a child theme then they should really be the one to create it. I just offered a ready-made one to make it convenient.

    The settings on the theme options page will remain the same. If you’re talking about changes/edits you made on the actual theme files then no, you’ll have to do them again on the child theme.

    Ron,

    Thank you for the fast reply. Yes, I heard about child themes before, but was not sure I wanted to create one myself.

    I thought it best to use your child theme with your theme(s). It just made sense to me.

    Again, thank you for creating these 2 fabulous themes.

    cheers,
