    Hi i am a complete novice in wordpress and try to make some changes to my theme. I have choosen the responsive theme and the folders are like:

    themes:
    responsive.1.7.9.1:
    Responsive:
    style.css

    In the wordpress explanation it is explained that i have to make a folder on the theme level so under "responsive.1.7.9.1." and in this new folder i should put the style.css for the childtheme. I did this but nothing changed. My question is:

    where do i have to put the new folder containing the css file for the cildtheme? Is it right under responsive 1.7.9.1 or right under (same level) as "responsive"?

    Thanks for help

    in the wp-content/themes folder - at the same level as the responsive folder.

    I did this and copied the style.css from the folder "resposive"and renamed the name in the style.css and also template as explained. Then i changed some fontparameters just to check but nothing changed.

    The direct folder under themes is "responsive.1.7.9.1" so according to the helpfile i should make a folder on this level for the child. In my case in the folder "responsive.1.7.9.1"is just another subfolder called "responsive" So do i understand it correct that i have to make a folder on this level? ( within the folder "responsive.1.7.9.1" i have to create a folder for the child css? )I do not know what i am doing wrong or is it not possible just to copy the style.css and only change the name and template. Should i also use this import quote? Please let me know whether i use the correct folder and if it is possible just to copy the original style.css file rename the name and template and then just make the wanted changes in this file.

    That's all wrong. Review child theme.
