    Hello, my website is Imagerydictionary.com and I'm having trouble uploading the child theme. Trust me, I've looked up many, many people who've asked this question before, but still nothing. I spend hours going to my ftp files manager and uploading this code:
    /*
    Theme Name: expound-child
    Theme URI: http://www.imagerydictionary.com/
    Description: Child theme for the Expound
    Author: Dray
    Author URI:
    Template: expound
    Version: 1.9
    */

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

    .......................
    and this code
    /*
    Theme Name: expound-child
    Theme URI: http://www.imagerydictionary.com/
    Description: Child theme for the Expound
    Author: dray
    Author URI:
    Template: expound
    Version: 1.9
    */

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

    /* =Theme customization starts here
    -------------------------------------------------------------- */

    but nothing. What is going on. Yes, I've looked at the location of the folders---they are right next to each other (child theme and parent theme in my ftp file). I have also uploaded the child theme but I can't import the style.css. It looks like just text.
    PLEASE help me!

    NVM, can you believe that? I found the solution. If anyone else is having trouble, what I did is I uploaded this code:
    /*
    Theme Name: expound-child
    Theme URI: http://www.imagerydictionary.com/
    Description: Child theme for the Expound
    Author: draya
    Author URI:
    Template: expound
    Version: 1.9
    */

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

    /* =Theme customization starts here
    -------------------------------------------------------------- */

    Saved it as a zip. on my computer then uploaded it to my dashboard add new theme
