Child Theme and Responsive Design (3 posts)

    I'm trying to implement a child theme with the Responsive Theme as the parent (wonderful theme so far btw - kudos to CyberChimps)

    When I put the following line in the my child's style.css:
    @import url("../responsive/style.css");

    the responsive design seems to go away. i.e. on my iPhone there are 3 narrow columns rather than widgets stacked vertically.

    If I comment out the line it behaves as if the parent theme is getting imported and also uses styles in the child's style.css. I'm confused as to how it is doing this. Perhaps because of the following lines in my child CSS:

    Theme Name: Responsive Child
    Theme URI: http://rakkatak-wordpress.com/responsive-child/
    Description: Responsive Child Theme
    Author: Rakkatak
    Author URI: http://rakkatak-wordpress.com
    Template: responsive
    Version: 1.0.0

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    You also have to include the mobile style.css in your child css file:
    @import url("../responsive/core/css/style.css")
