Comment on Stallion Responsive WordPress Child Theme by Bud Sailor.

Stallion Responsive Child ThemeThanks for the in depth information. However, just a couple more clarifications needed. And, YES I did mess up. I did accidentally updated and activated the Stallion Responsive theme before installing the new zip Child theme. I really messed up this time! :(

What is the difference between uploading the .zip contents via FTP or via the upload feature in the themes page? I uploaded the .zip file v8.2 using the upload from computer option on the theme upload page. After doing this, I activated the child and now ALL my widgets which were previous set and visible on the correct posts / pages and still appear on the Widgets Pages on the correct sidebar, have now mysteriously disappeared.

Is there a fix?
Thanks.
