No child theme

  • Anonymous


    I have created a child theme folder in themes and created a style.css file, I then went to WP appearance/themes and no child theme is present to activate. Please advice?



    I am so sorry, I left the css file empty! Doh! Now sorted.



    I take that back, I activated it and my website went to pot

    Yeah, you have issues with your child theme CSS. What does it contain?

    If it’s long, use to paste the contents here.



    It contains this


    Theme Name: Graphene Child

    Theme URI:

    Description: Child theme for the Graphene theme

    Author: Your name here

    Author URI:

    Template: graphene

    Version: 1.0


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

    /* Your modification goes here */

    That looks okay. Where is the child theme folder? It should be in the same folder as the Graphene theme:

    [WordPress] >> wp-content >> themes

    [WordPress] is whatever folder you have WordPress installed in.



    Yes I am pretty sure its in the right place child

    Is that a space in the graphene child folder name? If yes, replace it with a dash. As a general rule, it’s bad practice to have spaces in file and folder names for everything web.



    I have changed the file name, but that has not solved the problem.

    Try refreshing your browser cache. It looks fine now.
