Problem with Broken Themes when creating Child Theme (3 posts)

    Hello

    I am currently starting to develop a child theme. I have a child theme folder twentyeleven-child inside themes/ folder, with style.css in it, with the following code

    /*
    Theme Name: Twentytwelve Child
    Description: Child theme for the twentytwelve theme
    Author: Your name here
    Template: twentytwelve
    */
    
    @import url("../twentytwelve/style.css");

    I know I follow every step in wordpress codex on how to create a child theme. But why I am still getting this error.

    Broken Themes

    The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template.

    Name Description
    languages Stylesheet is missing.

    The following forum link didn't answer my question so I posted a new one.

    By the way I am using XAMPP and I am suspecting because of this

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

    the ../ I think the reason why it didn't see the twentytwelve folder.

    any help can be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Is your Child Theme's style.css file named with a capital 'S'?
