I am not entirely new to StudioPress however it’s been awhile and I need to revamp a blog that is located in a subfolder as part of my current website. For example http://www.website.com/website-blog
So if I install a NEW theme from my WP dashboard area ONLY (by “uploading” two zip file ~ which in this instance will consist of a StudioPress child theme + the Genesis framework it needs to function), will it indeed just place those files inside the http://www.website.com/website-blog FOLDER correct?…. with no chance of it affecting anything else “outside” of the folder period? I won’t be unzipping and FTPing these files to the server, just uploading the 2 zip files from my WP dashboard. Is this a safer bet anyhow?
Secondly, right now I’m currently using a free generic blog theme that is nearly 6 years old, so before I upload the “new theme” should I disable the present “old theme” and instead set it temporarily to the generic WP theme that normally comes with WP or just proceed with the Genesis +StudioPress theme update without having to do that first? Not sure it would make any difference obviously. I do have the latest version 3.5 of WP currently installed.
When you upgrade to a new theme though, how does that usually affect the previous posts, items in the sidebar, navigation links, header image, title, categories set and pages which were there before? Should I also disable all plugins?
Thanks for your help.January 22, 2013 at 2:32 pm #13823

Thank you for the reply. Is it possible for you or anyone else to address the other concerns/ issues I presented before proceeding?January 23, 2013 at 8:44 pm #14222
Should I also disable all plugins first before proceeding with the theme upgrade + Genesis? My current WP blog is not using Genesis by the way.January 23, 2013 at 9:37 pm #14232
