Cannot get child theme to activate on live site
I had my site running smoothly on my PC using BitNami.
I created a child theme easily and it worked fine.
Today I have been trying to get it moved to the hosting service – GoDaddy – and cannot get the child theme to connect. It says the theme is broken, that the parent theme is missing.
I have deleted all extra themes. I deleted Graphene and resinstalled it. I have reviewed the css child theme and cannot determine the problem.
Screen shot of the error message in the dashboard:
Screen shot showing that Graphene is the active theme:
Header of the child css file:
Theme Name: GrapheneChild
Theme URI: http://www.?.com
Description: This is my first child theme
Any suggestions? I am just about at my wits end and considering asking GoDaddy to restore the site to what they initially setup and starting over again.
Edit to add: I tried the sites URL for Theme URI, but that did not work either. That could the the problem, but I don’t know what the URI should be if not http://www.crimsoncolumbine.com or what I have in it.
Try this one:
Theme Name: Graphene Child
Theme URI: http://www.crimsoncolumbine.com/
Description: Child theme for the Graphene theme
Author URI: http://www.crimsoncolumbine.com/

Hmm.. Your pictures are linking to localhost.
Remember to upload and link to the pictures.
I made a very short Child Theme intro last in this post:
Finally got the photos loaded and in in the right places. Now I have a test environment on my local PC, but if I do this again (likely) I will not do as much content work on the PC before I move it to the web. “Under Construction” pages don’t bother me. I would rather use one of those than have to do so much work over again.
Thanks again for your help.
