Adding Child Themes to Multisite WordPress (2 posts)

    I am trying to add a child theme to an exiting theme in a multisite environment. When I went My Sites --> Network Admin --> Dashboard --> Themes to activate it, then to the my site to enable it, I lost access to my site and the admin console (with the WSOD).

    Does anyone have any ideas as to why this might be happening and how to fix/prevent it?

    I was only able to bring it back up after going into the DB files and revert back to the parent theme.

    Hello Jyana,

    There are several posts on the use of child themes in multisite issue. This post Mulitsite Child themes suggests that you review the error log to see what's happening. The user who was having the issue was able to resolve it after review the problem.

    Can you see if the issue is being logged in your error logs? Also what theme are you referring to?
