OMG! this is the BEST explanation for parent/child theme. Now I understand it. Please update your theme tutorial with this additional wording in the first paragraph. If all the articles I’ve read had explained it this well and simply it would have saved me a lot of time and hopefully for others as well.
I’ll check out the link you sent to me about the error message from WP. I’ve noticed that sometimes “things won’t work today but will work tomorrow” with WP.
I’m looking forward to working with Preference Pro vs. lite to see what interesting things I can do.
Thanks for the great theme and support.
