No child theme

    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.

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

    If it’s long, use http://pastebin.com to paste the contents here.

    It contains this

    /*

    Theme Name: Graphene Child

    Theme URI: http://example.com/

    Description: Child theme for the Graphene theme

    Author: Your name here

    Author URI: http://example.com/about/

    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.

    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.
