Child theme not working (3 posts)

    Hello,

    I'm having a problem creating a child theme that overrides the parent Max Magazine CSS file. I created the child theme following the directions in the WordPress codex (http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes) and activated it via the WordPress dashboard, but any CSS changes I make will not show up. Additionally, there is no preview screen for the child theme. Any help is appreciated.

    (I'm working locally with a test server, so I don't have a URL to provide).

    Hi there,

    What child theme plugin are you using?

    I use One-Click and it has an easy option to choose your parent theme.

    It seems that YOUR child theme is not communicating correctly with the parent theme.

    Let me know if One-Click doesn't work for you. And we can further troubleshoot.

    Thanks,
    Andy

    Also adding !important after the value of the style will help overwrite default styles or styles that are overwriting your styles.

    example:

    div {
    display: inline-block !important;
    }
