    Hi, This is a wonderful theme, easy to use, clean and very well thought out! Thank You.

    I would like to know how I can add a ‘call to action’ button somewhere in the Header or Menu area.

    This is the site http://vikinglodge3683.putzle.com.

    Thanks so much, and again a great template!

    Add this in your child theme’s functions.php file:

    <?php
    function graphene_custom_content(){
    // Add your content here
    }
    add_action('graphene_header', 'graphene_custom_content');
    ?>

    Thank you. I will try this once I figure out why the child theme I created using your instructions is not quite what it should be.

    Please let me know what you think I did wrong here: http://putzle.com (I used this as a test child theme before implementing on the real site.) This is what is in the style.css for the child.

    /*

    Theme Name: Graphene Child

    Theme URI: http: //vikinglodge3683.putzle.com/

    Description: Child theme for the Graphene theme

    Author: Deb Chabot

    Author URI: http: //example.com/about/

    Template: graphene

    Version: 0.1.0

    */

    @import url(“../graphene/style.css”);

    /* Your modification goes here */

    Thank You, once again.

    You are not actually using child theme on http://putzle.com

    Not now, you are correct ….I changed it back.

    I created the child theme and was able to activate it, but when viewing it, everything was like a ‘mirror’ of the original graphene theme.

    I then, educated myself on the WordPress site, how to create child themes, and using their example, created the ‘Twenty Ten’ child theme. That also appear as a mirror of the original theme.

    Since it was making me dizzy, I changed putzle back.

    (everything lines up to the right, including the content, which looks like you are reading backwards but the text is intact, if this makes any sense)

    Apparently there is more to creating a child theme than the directions in the tutorial.

    Upon reading your comments in the editor of graphene ‘Theme Functions’ you talk about the ‘hooks’.

    Is this maybe the part I am missing?

    thanks

    I have activated the graphene child theme I created here: http://putlzebeta.putzle.com/

    so you can see what I am doing wrong.

    I am working on the child theme, and I’m thinking my troubles might be because I’m using the wordpress multisite.

    Do you know how I would create a child theme for this purpose?

    When I opened the header.php in graphene it had the data for a different site than I wanted to use.

    Sorry, I don’t really have much experience working with multisite WP installation. You’d probably can get more help at the WordPress.org support forum.
