Using File Manager in cPanel is fine. Same as FTP
Upload the new blog page template to your child theme.
Make sure you saved it using a text editor like Notepad++ as a php file.
Then add the code to your child themes functions.php file to register the widget and hook it into the top of the blog page.
But I already have a blog template, right? So I can skip the first part of your tutorial (making a blog template)?
No because the default blog template doesn’t allow for adding content before the posts
But if I upload the php file, will the blog still look the same as it does now?
Okay…. I did all the steps in your tutorial (even figured out how to upload the php file to child theme’s root directory). The new widget area was created, and I put “Categories” widget in it. I refreshed/republished. etc.
But, as far as I can tell, nothing has changed? http://18.104.22.168/~sarahsm1/blog/
How do I do that? (let you look inside?)
