followed instructions but child theme contains virtually no structure

  • annvb1


    I followed instructions for creating a php and css file and uploading them to a child theme folder for my website. When I look at the site it has virtually no formatting or structure; looks utterly different than the site when it’s first opened under the regular graphene theme. Here’s the content of the css file I uploaded:


    Theme Name: Graphene Child for WAW

    Theme URI:

    Description: Child theme for the Graphene theme

    Author: Ann Baker

    Author URI:

    Template: graphene

    Version: WomenAtWoodstock


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

    and the content for the php file:



    I’ve read and followed 4 different tutorials for doing this just to make sure there wasn’t some typo or something in one of them that was causing the problem. They all said the same thing. Can anyone help?

    Moved to Support. Please be sure to post in the correct section.

    Your site looks okay to me in that it has “structure”—the main Graphene elements are there. You have made all of your modifications through Graphene options; your child theme does not contain any modifications. You have not created any posts, and you are missing a menu. You are also missing a header image. Have you edited any theme files?

    If things look strange, try refreshing your browser cache.
