Hi! It is unclear to me, which folder the “Theme Folder” should be, which needs to be set up under “Wordpress Site” in Pinegrow. Reason why:
In the documentation you (the Pinegrow people) say required is a “local WordPress installation. The easiest way is to use a packaged solution like Flywheel or MAMP” (tutorial page for Freelancer). I get that, and I’ve got that. I’ve got MAMP installed. However …
In the video at [2:57] (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N76R3ZLU-hw&t=177s), for the theme folder, you do not choose a folder for the new theme Olaf inside e.g. MAMP, but on your desktop! When I tried a folder similarly outside MAMP, I got an error (Error: exporting too many files). I’d perfectly understand if the folder should be inside a WP instance on a test server such as MAMP. But in your example, it’s not, it’s on your desktop, and I don’t get that. Could you or someone pls. clarify that, please?
Which folder exactly (anywhere? same as the html? not the same? inside server? outside server?) should the theme folder be?
Then, related: What’s the significance of the “Preview Page URL” (next field)? If the theme folder were inside a test server (such as MAMP), why is an extra URL needed, such as http://olaf:8888? - I’ve worked with Acquia Desktop (Drupal) before and understood such things there to be for external users, like to provide links to clients to view the draft stage product. - But here, I haven’t understood yet how this works. - If the theme folder can be outside of MAMP (desktop in the example by Matjaz), does the URL (olaf… see above) mean that Pinegrow has its own server inside?
Please someone help me understand what to do and why!
