Child Theme …not working

    Hi anyone,

    Am new to all this, I’ve been editing my Graphene parent theme,but now realise it should be done through a child theme.

    I have read lots of forum info…but still doesn’t sink in!

    I created a child theme through the template online from Prasanna SP,this went ok.

    It ‘s in my themes folder,and I activated it.

    I’m not sure what do do next,I looked into my digitalpacific host’s w/p content folder and there is a graphene child.

    But I can’t change anything through my graphene options in graphene child theme.

    Some of my images in front slider have changed size,but I can fix this if I can use the options in child …but to no avail.

    I’m sure I have done something wrong,but what?

    /*
    Theme Name: Graphene Child
    Theme URI: http://leamachydraulicconsultants.com.au
    Description: Child theme for the Graphene theme
    Author: Denise
    Author URI: http://leamachydraulicconsultants.com.au
    Template: graphene
    Version: 1.0
    */
    @import url("../graphene/style.css");

    /* Your modification goes here */

    Thankyou in anticipation.

    Any changes you make to the Graphene theme options should be reflected on your blog, even when using a child theme. Have you refreshed your browser (CTRL +F5)? Have you emptied your server cache, if you’re using one?

    Is that the entire contents of your child theme style sheet?

    What do you mean by you cannot change anything through Graphene Options? Is there any error being shown? WP Admin > Appearance > Graphene Options not available?

    Sorry,did reply….but my server had an outage.

    I could not access my website,server said their sites had been moved…and I had to do a DNS flush.

    Which I just did.

    Back to this problem

    I only have what i have copied above in my graphene child theme style css…should I have anything else?

    Do I have to do anything in the c/panel of my host digitalpacific.com.au?

    How do I make changes in editor with nothing in my css.

    Sorry for my questions,but I have looked at lots of forum entry’s.

    Thanks

    It does say next to my installed themes,

    Child theme for the Graphene theme

    This Child Theme requires its Parent Theme Graphene

    Is this a normal notation,or does it mean something?

    There are websites and programs (diffchecker.org, for instance) that allow you to compare the contents of the two different files. I would download a clean copy of Graphene, and download the style.css from your website that you’ve been editing. Get the style.css from the clean copy of Graphene and compare it to your style sheet. Copy any changes over to your child theme stylesheet.

    This is normal. It means that because your child theme is a child, it won’t work unless you have Graphene installed as its parent.

    The easiest way is probably via FTP.
