Bryan - I don't think so? I bought platform pro. I found a tutorial for creating child themes online and maybe this won't work for platform pro? Can you tell me how I go about getting platformbase? Thanks.

After doing some searching in the forum, I realized that I don't have platformbase. I have the "platformpro" folder on desktop, but I can't locate the zip file.
