Child Theme doesn't show up in Dashboard (5 posts)

    Hello,

    I'm sorry if the same topic already exists but I am not that good in English and I searched and searched.

    I made a Child-Theme and in WordPress it tells me, that it doesn't work. So I can not activate it! The error says:
    "Das ├ťbergeordnete Theme fehlt. Bitte installiere das ├╝bergeordnete Theme "twentyeleven\", da du Child-Themes sonst nicht nutzen kannst."
    (In English: the parent theme is not installed. Please install it!)
    But it is installed and already active!

    in the ftp it looks like:
    respectare (childtheme)
    twentyeleven (parenttheme)
    they are on the same level

    In "respectare" is a style.css with the following:
    /*
    Theme Name: repectare
    Description: Child theme for the Twenty Twelve theme
    Author: Sissi Kandziora
    Author URI: http://sissi-kandziora.de
    Template: twentyeleven
    Version: 0.1
    */

    What can I do?

    @kittens - can you start a new thread if you need help and include a link to your site, please.

    @mystyleandfashion - if you are still trying to do this, it looks like you are missing this line:

    @import url("../twentyeleven/style.css");

    It should go at the bottom of what you have so it should look like this:

    /*
    Theme Name: repectare
    Description: Child theme for the Twenty Twelve theme
    Author: Sissi Kandziora
    Author URI: http://sissi-kandziora.de
    Template: twentyeleven
    Version: 0.1
    */
    
    @import url("../twentyeleven/style.css");

    @kittensforgood - again, please start your own thread if you need help. Posting in multiple old threads really does not work well on these forums. See:
