    Thank you for taking time to write such a detailed answer. I agree with you about separating features. There are so many plugins that do 12 things and maybe I need only 2 of them…

    Thank you for taking time to look-up and link to the video URL.

    It cleared up all my zip file questions. I’m all updated.

    Thanks Jason.

    I do understand what you explained with the folders being in separate locations, but I don’t understand what to do.

    I’ve downloaded the updated/new version in a zip file. If I go into WordPress > Appearance > Manage themes, I see my active theme is my child theme and I see the Parent theme located below.

    1) When using WordPress to update, do I go to Appearances > Install themes and choose to upload the zip file there and will that overwrite the Parent theme I see under the ‘manage themes’ tab?

    2) Will I have to delete the parent theme I currently have loaded before doing #1 above, or does it get overridden automatically?

    3) Alternatively, can I just FTP the zip file directly into the directory or do I unpackage all the zip items and FTP those over? I see the Zip file has two more zip files within it.

    Thanks for being patient with me. I don’t want to do it wrong.
    Tracy
