[resolved] Responsive Child Theme not showing up in Appearance (4 posts)

    I have added a folder "../themes/responsive-child" and put an edited style.css in it, but ... it doesn't show up in Appearance. This message is at bottom of Appearance page:

    Broken Themes

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

    Name Description
    Responsive Template is missing.

    Should it matter that there are three domains on this ISP account?
    What am I missing?

    Do you have this at the top of the child theme style.css file:

    /*
    Theme Name:     Responsive Child
    Template:       responsive
    */
    @import url("../responsive/style.css");

    After that you should only have changes to the CSS - not a copy of the entire parent file.

    You must also have the Responsive theme still installed but not active.

    The child theme must be activated.

    Also, make sure the folder is readable. Make sure to chmod it if necessary.
