How to Change a Child Theme with InstantWordPress

First thing you want to do is get the InstantWordPress program and put it onto your portable hard-drive, 8-GB (Gigabytes) to a Terabyte.
Once you do that you will need to start it up and run the program to download it to your specific location.

Now open the program and you will see this image:

Put the word login after the / and go to Firefox and put it in the address bar and you will see a login screen for WordPress. Type ADMIN for user-id and type Password for the password.

Once you are on the site and you can see your WordPress blog, go to Appearance and update the WordPress theme Twenty Eleven. After that updates you will want to put in the Child Theme by putting it in the Theme Folder of the Instant WordPress Menu and going to the site and you will see the Theme under Appearance>Themes.

One thought on “How to Change a Child Theme with InstantWordPress

  1. Excellent, though InstantWP is not part of the process of creating or editing a Child Theme. It is just one way of creating a testing environment. If you are on a self-hosted version of WordPress, or a private server or testing environment, you could do the same thing. Great example of modifications!
