Step 50: How to back up Thesis 2 Skins

Thesis 2 Skin Manager

For Step 50 we’ll learn how to back up our Thesis 2 Skin using the Manager.  Backing up your skin is an important safety step for your site.  Most of what we have done up to this step involves customizing the Thesis 2 Skin.  Maybe you didn’t even realize it, but you were building your own custom Thesis skin.  Just like backing up your computer is important, so is backing up your skin.

From your WordPress Dashboard navigate to the Thesis 2 Skin Editor.  Click on the “Manager” button as shown above.  Next click on the green “Create New Backup” button.

In the pop-up, give your Thesis 2 Skin backup a name.  Then click “OK”.
