Site lost formatting after changing to child theme
Followed steps for creating child theme – created folder, put style.css in folder (the only uncommented line is the import statement), activated child theme, and now header is back to Graphene header instead of header I uploaded, custom menus gone, blocks on home page are re-arranged.
I do have custom css under Graphene Options.
My goal was to create a child theme so I could make mods to footer.php.

That was default behavior with older versions of WordPress; hence my reason for asking. But it shouldn’t do that with 3.9.2.Quote:I do have custom css under Graphene Options.
Yes, that should be moved to child theme stylesheet eventually. Graphene makes that easy.
I don’t see anything anywhere that could cause this. You can try disabling plugins to rule out a plugin issue.Mod

Your child theme is loading third to last.
You could disable the light style options in Graphene, since you are overriding all of those styles anyway. Not sure if this will fix it, but it will save you some overhead.Admin
I followed your suggestion and it’s now looking like it should.
I had to:
– upload custom header image
– change background color
– custom menus – menu structure was intact but I had to set it in Manage Locations
– widget contents were there but were switched around between the different widgets, ex: Graphene-before-content widget had contents of Front Page Footer Widget area
I moved custom css back to Graphene Options under Display tab.
My child CSS has just the header info and no css styles.
Glad it’s fixed!
