Not clear on child theme for NEO

    In the read me file it says:

    “The Any Mobile Theme Switcher (AMTS) plugin can accept a child theme to be used as the mobile theme for mobile devices. Therefore, you can simply create a child theme for Graphene Mobile Neo as you would with any other theme.”

    But in the resource page given, located at: <http://docs.graphene-theme.com/Customisation_using_a_child_theme&gt; I followed the instructions exactly but it makes a child theme for the parent Graphene. Is this correct?

    I am beginning to realize that it looks like I need the Graphene Parent and the NEO. Very confusing, so I probably need a child for the parent and for NEO???

    Which one do you edit if you want to customize? It looks like there are 2 parallel themes running. There should be a much clearer tutorial on this.

    That tutorial is specific for the Graphene theme, but the process is similar for any other themes. In the child theme’s style.css file, change graphene to graphene-mobile-neo and you should be all set.

    Template:       graphene-mobile-neo

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

    OK thanks Syahir. I’m starting to get it. I have installed the parent Graphene and created a child for that. How does it work with customizing? Do I customize in my parent child or the NEO child or do I need to do both?

    If you’re not using Graphene, there’s no need to do that.

    Make changes to the Neo child theme to customise Neo.

    Disregard, I figured it out…it was missing the dashes connecting the template name

    Yes, the template name must match the folder name of the parent theme exactly, so those dashes need to be there.
