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.

Which version of WordPress are you using? This shouldn’t be an issue in latest versions.August 7, 2014 at 4:09 pm #43123
Just now updated Graphene theme from 1.9.2 to 1.9.3August 7, 2014 at 9:17 pm #43124
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.August 7, 2014 at 9:41 pm #43125
I just now disabled plugins and no change, so I re-activated them.
What else can I try?August 7, 2014 at 9:42 pm #43126
I also moved custom css from Graphene Options to child theme stylesheet and it did not help….August 7, 2014 at 11:38 pm #43127sanuja.comParticipant
Go to your CPanel or server side file manager and delete the Child Theme from the WP install. This will (should) automatically take the site back to the default Theme.August 8, 2014 at 7:30 pm #43128
I need to get the CHild Theme to work though, because I want to edit footer.php and don’t want it overwritten.August 9, 2014 at 2:44 pm #43129
Ken – are you able to look at how the css files are being loaded to see if that is why the formatting has been lost?
What else can I try?August 9, 2014 at 3:53 pm #43130
Files are loading in this order:

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.August 9, 2014 at 8:50 pm #43131
I unchecked this:
Use light-colored header bars
Is there anything else?
That one change did not fix it.August 11, 2014 at 12:26 pm #43132Syahir HakimKeymaster
So what other formatting exactly is lost? If it’s just the header and menus you can just go ahead and re-apply your old settings in WP Admin > Appearance > Header, and Menus.August 11, 2014 at 10:49 pm #43133
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!August 13, 2014 at 10:27 am #43134SkiveyMember
I notice a little bit of code hiding at the bottom of your website.
