I am some what of a beginner at working with css. But I have been able to create Child themes before and for them to work fine. The problem i am having is strange I am trying to import the parent theme's style.css and it is not registering. All the post/ blogs/ documentation for working with child themes indicate that the import rule has to be the first thing other then the text written between /* and */ as this part is ignored by browsers, since everything between /* and */ is a comment in CSS syntax.
I need help if any one can assist me I would be grateful.
the Child theme is written as such :
*\ Theme Name: Dear Diary Child Theme Theme URI: http: //example.com/ Description: Child theme for the Dear Diary theme Author: Mary Sharp Author URI: http: //example.com/about/ Template: dear-diary Version: 0.1 */ @import url("../dear-diary/style.css");
