    Dear WordPressers,

    I wanted to start a child theme for Pinboard but it doesn't seem to work.
    I followed the directions from WordPress, http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes, and it looks like i took the right steps.
    Unfortunately when i go to themes, it gives the following error message:

    The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template.
    Name Description
    2012_child_munz Stylesheet is missing.

    This is the css code i've used:
    /*
    Theme Name: Pinboard child
    Theme URI: http://munzmedia.nl/
    Description: Child theme for Pinboard
    Author: Steven Munzebrock
    Template: pinboard
    */

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

    Does anyone has an idea what i'm doing wrong?

    Thanx in advance!
    Steven

    Same same here.

    Read the codex, followed the host gator tutorials, read the help forums, tried saving code from text editor Notepad in unicode, and ansi, and then uploading, and then repasting, and then just typing in manually in cpanel file editor. No joy.

    After two weeks on this, I'm finding I'm not a rocket scientist after all. Please help!

    I have the same problem. When creating a child theme for Pinboard, the child theme doesn't work correctly. Background is wrong, functions.php of the child theme doesn't work.

    Any suggestions how to create a working child theme for Pinboard.

    Thx
