    Hi there,
    I would like to use a child theme with Absolum theme (1.1.5).
    I have added a functions.php as per
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/why-wont-my-theme-pick-up-its-child-stylecss?replies=24
    Added changes to the style.css which seem to have been applied however some of the images from the main theme are not correct when the child theme is active.
    Is it possible to use a child theme with Absolum ?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Sure, I just setup and made one myself. Just style.css but it worked fine.

    What functions are you trying to put into your child theme? I don't think that old thread applies with this version.

    Remember, don't copy any of the parent theme functions into your child theme.

    I started from here. I created absolum-child subfolder and created a style.css here and added the following:

    /*
    Theme Name:     absolum-child
    Theme URI:      http://personaltrainingsevenoaks.co.uk
    Description:    Child theme for absolum
    Author:         Mike Giles
    Author URI:     http://personaltrainingsevenoaks.co.uk
    Template:       absolum
    Version:        0.1.0
    */
    
    @import url("../absolum/style.css");

    Activated the child theme in wp-admin.
    However any css I place in the child css doesn't get applied.
    (I'm doing this on a localhost)
    Thanks,

    Can you give me an example of that CSS? That way I can try it on my own test installation. Your style.css file above is virtually identical to my own.

    Hi,
    Just trying to change colors at the moment:

    #wrapper {
    	background: #F7A5FA;
    	margin-top: 20px;
    	padding: 0 20px;
      clear: both;
      position:relative;
    }
    
    #site-title a {
    	color: #F7A5FA;
      background:#1a1a1a;
      padding:0 10px;
    	text-decoration: none;
      text-shadow:0 1px 2px #111;
      float:left;
    }

    Thanks

    Hi,
    I've also noticed that the header custom image doesn't display when the child is activated (just the default blue) but does when the parent is activated.

    Regards,
