Child theme lost formatting / no "boxes" – URGENT – Please help!

  • MerriSedai


    I have attempted to create a child theme (graphenechildmyblog) for one site on a Multisite WordPress site.

    I followed all the instructions, but there appears to be something missing because the formatting (font style, tabs, boxes for sample content, etc.) are not nearly the same as on the other sites, which use the parent.

    My website (with child theme) —

    Compare (with parent) —

    here is the style.css I added (do you see an error?)

    Theme Name: Graphene Chlld for My Blog
    Theme URI: http://test.horrorhousepartygraphenechlldmyblog
    Description: Graphene Child Theme for My Blog pages
    Author: Susan Morton
    Author URI:
    Template: graphene
    Version: 1.0.0
    Text Domain: graphenechildmyblog

    @import url("../graphene/style.css");

    /* =Theme customization starts here

    Please help. I just can’t see what I did and it’s driving me nuts!

    /* and */ are CSS opening and closing comment tags, respectively. You are using them to comment out the parent theme’s import statement.

    @import url("../graphene/style.css");

    Should be

    @import url("../graphene/style.css");

    Please do not mark threads “urgent” (everybody’s support request is urgent to them) or “please help” (you are in a support forum, after all). Neither will get your query answered any quickly, and some people (not here, but in places) take umbrage at them. 😉

    Also, please put code in between backtick (


    ) characters. It’s usually located above the Tab key on your keyboard.



    Thank you for correcting my errors, and I apologize for posting mis-steps. I promise: no more urgent or help no matter how urgent I feel or how much help I need.

    Now on to start other threads for other problems ::sigh::
