noticed that guy is crazy spamming all the posts. le sigh. if we ever get moved over to our new site then i will have the mod capabilities to block that. akismet has blocked posts of MINE, but that drivel gets though. i dont get it sometimes.
appreciate your willingness to learn. if you stay long enough you start to see a lot of folks wanting the forum to do the work for them for free, same questions being asked repeatedly, etc. it can be frustrating.
i still don't really follow what you need a sample child theme for? or database content. db content isn't any different at all and thematic comes with a very blank/basic child theme in a sub-folder of thematic. have you read some of the basics of child theming?
As it turns out, I managed to find one of the other guy's forum posts of how they copied over the template-page-blog.php and template-page-fullwidth.php into their child theme and that worked!
that is basic WP template hierarchy.
any version of a WP template file (header.php, index.php, page.php, etc) will first look in the child theme folder and failing to find it there will then fall back to the parent theme's version.
feel free to ask away w/ more specific questions. and as an unsolicited tip using google's site search. go to google.com and in the search bar search
site:themeshaper.com/forums your search query
the built-in search here kind of sucks, but there is a ton of material here if you know how/where to look
