Testing new Template on a Child site Question

New postby [email protected] » Sat Dec 25, 2010 11:26 pm

I thought maybe you can give me a hint what to do.

Here is my situation:
I have uploaded/installed a new template to a child site and makes it active on the child site. The new template shows up on the child site, but it also makes some changes on the live site. As a result live site losses its original template.

Is there a setting I need to be aware of when creating a child site? So I can really test a new template without disturbing the life site?
My only difference on Child Database Settings vs Master Database Settings is use of wcp_
I created child site manually by copying all files into child folder using FTP.

I though you might have seen something like that happening in your experience.

Thank you in advance.

Compare configuration.php files of your master and child sites. Make appropriate changes for paths and databases and FTP settings if you use FTP layer. Installing a template and playing with it shouldn't modify the master.
