Activating Child Theme Makes Dynamic Sidebar / Widgets Unavailable (5 posts)

    I am relatively new to the WordPress platform. I am in the process of changing the theme of an existing site. The new theme will be a customization of this commercial theme:

    I want to do the customization in a child theme.

    Activating a child theme makes the dynamic sidebar inactive and the widgets of the existing site unavailable (the sidebar is active and the widgets are available when the parent theme is activated).

    The problem occurs even if the child theme is nothing more than a stylesheet that has one line of code importing the parent theme's stylesheet.

    What might be the source of the problem?

    I'm sorry but as you are using a commercial theme, you need to seek support from the theme's vendors.

    Can you post the contents of your child theme's stylesheet here? Just the import and comments.

    Will follow esmi's protocol. Thought this might be a more general, theme-independent problem. For @ Andrew Bartel:

    Theme Name:     Vertical Theme Child
    Description:    Child theme for Vertical Theme
    Version:        1.0
    Template:       verticaltheme
    @import url("../verticaltheme/style.css");

    Should have worked fine, I'd ask them if there's anything weird they're doing.
