Creating a child theme for Themia Lite (17 posts)

    Hi,

    I try to create a child theme for the Themia Lite theme and it is not working. Here is my new stylesheet that I created in my Themia Lite Child folder in my FTP:

    /*
    Theme Name: Themia Lite Child
    Description: Child theme for Themia Lite
    Author: Josiane Pilon
    Version: 1.2.2
    Template: themia-lite
    */
    @import url("../themia-lite/style.css");

    When i go back in my themes (in my dashboard), I have this message:

    Broken Themes
    The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template.
    Name Description
    themia-lite - Child Stylesheet is missing.

    Thanks for helping me,

    Josiane

    Did you name it style.css?

    I had this same problem with this theme.

    Just checked their support forums. Their themes don't currently support child themes. I thought that was a requirement for a theme to be allowed at the WordPress theme repository?

    Thanks for the info Mickey, it's what I thought. I agree with you, it doesn't make much sense to accept templates that can't have child themes....

    The update for Child Themes had already been approved by WordPress.org. It should be LIVE in few days and you would then be able to create the Child Themes using Themia Lite.

    Okay InkThemes, It's been a week. Any idea on when child themes will be possible?
    Thanks

    It looks as though it's been approved, yet WordPress has yet to update the page with the new version. You can read more here:

    http://themes.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/6953

    And you can download version 1.2.5 here:

    Thanks Mickey for putting up the Link.

    The Theme had been updated on the WordPress.org Frontend as well.

    Hi InkThemes, I have now downloaded the newest version 1.2.5 but still can't create my Child Theme. Please help or I will have to change my theme.

    Here is my style.css sheet created for my child theme:

    /*
    Theme Name: Themia Lite Child
    Theme URI: http://www.inkthemes.com/wp-themes/themia-theme/
    Description: Child theme for Themia Lite theme
    Author: Josiane Pilon
    Template: themia-lite
    Version: 1.2.5
    */
    @import url("../themia-lite/style.css");

    Can you tell me why it isn't working?

  11. Just for purposes of ruling it out, can you see the theme Themia Lite Child in you dashboard and did you activate it?

    I tried to duplicate the issue, but it seems to work okay on my test box with a parent theme version 1.2.5 as posted by MickeyRoush, and a exact copy/paste of the child theme css as posted above by Super Saturday.

    The applied theme info in my dashboard reads:

    Current Theme
    Themia Lite Child 1.2.5 by Josiane Pilon
    
    Child theme for Themia Lite theme

    Not much help I know, but at least it's an affirmation that it seems to work.

  13. I did something similar and changed the color of some h1 and h2 tags to be red.

    Worked for me, but it could be a problem with text encoding and the " isn't that in plain ASCII.

    If any of you guys are tired of playing with Themia-Lite like I was, check out the theme "Boldy" they are almost identical and it lets you do child themes with no problem. Just my 2 cents. Not putting down InkThemes or anything like that. I actually used one of the their premium themes before and had no probs.

    InkThemes, I wanted to let y'all know that my child theme won't pull the images from the parent theme. (I have copied the entire images folder into the child theme as a workaround.) Hope this helps!

    Hi Josiane,

    I had the same problem and fixed it by commenting out the 3 import statements already there. However, the menu was broken,so I allowed all 3 back in and though the theme still worked, the menu stayed broken??
    '/*
    Theme Name: Themia Lite Child
    Theme URI: http://www.inkthemes.com/wp-themes/themia-theme/
    Description: Themia Lite Child created by Jan and doesn't seem to work properly.
    Author: Jan Chadaj
    Template: themia-lite
    Version: 0.0.1
    */
    @import url("../themia-lite/style.css");

    @import url("css/reset.css");
    @import url("css/960_24_col.css");
    @import url(http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Droid+Serif); '

    very confused now...
    site is http://www.mpwassociates.com

    Sorted it
    get the plugin one-click child theme
    So simple and everything works except the menu.
    If you have created a menu, just go back in and choose the menu you have created.
    Appearance->Menus->Main Menu
    :)
