I just purchased my first child theme, Craftiness. Currently I use Atahualpa. I activated my new theme just to see what I have ahead of me in terms of getting it ready. It's all a jumbled mess with ads on top of photos and posts etc. Is that normal? Is there some trick or tip of things to do before activating a new theme~ like removing all widgets or deactivating plugins? Would love to figure this out on my own rather than hire someone. Thank you!http://buggyandbuddy.com
Its normal. You'll find the widgets may move around so you'll need to re populate them. This happens with any theme.
You could install WordPress locally and import your content with the new theme activated to test it out first.
Doubt you'll have any real problems.
Thanks, Brad. I'll give it a shot tonight!
