Alexandria
[resolved] How to do a child theme? (3 posts)

    Thank you for creating an awesome theme! I really like it a lot.

    I tried to create a child theme. Basically, I created a folder, created the standard chile theme css file with the import, and that was all I did.

    The result was that I lost your default graphics in many places, and the drop-down menu stopped (for the narrow screen) went black.

    Can you please tell me the right way to create a child theme for Alexandria? I'm guessing that there are additional files to be copied over, but that is just a guess.

    Mike

    Correction: no chile. I created a folder called alexandria-turco and added the following. In my mind, this should have created a child theme with which I could start working.

    /*
    Theme Name: Alexandria - Turco
    Theme URI: http://miketurco.com/
    Description: My child theme for the Alexandria theme
    Author: Mike Turco
    Author URI: http://miketurco.com/about/
    Template: alexandria
    Version: 1.0
    */
    @import url("../alexandria/style.css");

    /* everythign I add goes below this line * /

    I found the answer in an earlier support thread. Your suggestion of copying the css and image folders from the theme folder to the child folder worked. Am marking closed.
