1. How do I install a child theme? (specifically for the Twenty Eleven default template) (Where do I get one?)
I need to make some customizations to Twenty Eleven, specifically resizing the header and including a sidebar on single pages. From reading around it appears I should install a child theme 1st before customizing in order to ensure my changes are still there when the WP (theme?) is updated.
2. For the WP Twenty Eleven theme, the static Home page can be updated with as many posts as you want. (It is a setting.) How do I make it display so the 1st post is fully readable, and all the posts after that are just a summary that states 'read more' at the end?
Sorry for the lengthy details! Thank You in advance! And god help me trying to figure this out!
