I am confused about where to find the FTP panel and where to find the theme folders.

How do I access the FTP panel that has the theme files to create the child themes?

It my first time of the year answering question :)

Hi Trang Ho ,

In FTP Panel , As I know , Most of FTP or File Transfer Protocol Software is panel differently but in Filezilla , It most likely to on the right panel by default.

The Theme Folder is on your Wordpress Site Folder , It usually in public_html if most likely you used share hosting.

It usually have wp-config.php , wp-content , wp-admin in this folder.

Then you navigate to wp-content folder - > themes folder.

Also ,


If you want to install a child theme you usually want to download wordpress child theme on internet and upload to your theme folder ( wp-content/theme ) or create by yourselves if you master some CSS Technique.

The Tutorial to create your own basic child theme is here
