Use of Git with SFTP & WordPress: Administer topics
Here's a tutorial on how to use Git while using SFTP to develop with a native files-client and text-writer. Often it is necessary to download and upload to your website premiums plug-ins or topics from the plug-in vendor. For this example, we'll be replicating this by up-loading a new design, making a subdesign, and then making some sample adjustments to the style sheet - while we're on the road subjecting our work to revision controls in well grouped comits.
Upload the Bento theme of WordPress.org to your computer. Browse to Code in the Dev tabs of your Site Dashboard. Make sure your connectivity mode is still configured to STP. By clicking Open in your standard SFTPlient, click the Open link: You will see that Transmit starts to upload and then acknowledge when it is ready:
Now you can enable the Bento design in the WordPress Dashboard. This is from the topic we just posted. Send a committed email and then click Send to send our new design to release control: To optimize the appearance of a theme with user-defined features or style, you must do so in a sub theme.
Otherwise, you will loose this adjustment the next time you upgrade the theme. Children theme takes over all functions of the theme. It' just a point where the topic can be extended so that adjustments remain after further upgrades. Right click on the name of the folder, then choose New File and name it Styles.
Now if you have not already set up your ISPConfig SFTP to use your favorite text editors, you can. So we have set Transmit so that a double-click on a filename opens it for editing in Atom (Transmit > Preferences > Files from the Apple application menu): In Transmit, open the newly created styles CSF in order to edit them in Atom, and then insert the following at the beginning:
This is what the Atom text edit looks like. Store your extensions to the styles. Send your styles to Atom. Right click on the name of the folder, then choose New and name it functions.php. In Atom, open the document with a double-click, then insert the following text (which instructs WordPress to use our children's theme stylesheet) and save:
