    It's like it doesn't even find Twenty Eleven. It also doesn't show regular Twenty Eleven in the Manage Themes area! Help?

    Do you have all the required theme meta data at the top of a style.css file in the root of your theme folder? Removing this meta data, or renaming the stylesheet will break the theme.

    Yep, it was the first thing I double checked.

    Looked at your site and it seems you replaced the original twentyeleven theme's style.css with your child theme's style.css as well.

    You need to put the original twentyeleven style.css back into it's directory so that your child theme's style.css can import it.

    Well der. Now I feel just silly. Thanks Mark! All fixed, I ended up reinstalling twentyeleven just to be sure nothing lingered. All looks fine except one thing now, on pages that us a template for a Page of Posts, the sidebar is moved to the bottom. I've tried to figure out where to alter the margins so it'll fit but I'm at a loss.

    Here's an example:

    Any ideas?
