    I really like this theme. I'm a newbie but when I try to create a child theme using
    @import url("../zalive/style.css");

    and then try to activate the child theme, I get an error. Can you please help?

    If you are not technically skilled you can try the easy way with this plugin:

    If you prefer the hard way :-)

    And if you just want to writer some CSS code, why not copy your customized CSS code to the 'Custom CSS style' area in theme options page, this is quite easy.

    @orbisius
    I think that your plugin is very useful not only for those that aren't technically skilled. It's a real time saver

    Orbisius,

    I am trying to utilize your plugin with no success. This is the error message that wordpress is giving me when I try to upload the file: "The package could not be installed. PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT (-10) : Unable to find End of Central Dir Record signature"

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    romanousky, the download link may be old.
    can you try searching for the plugin from within wordpress?

    e.g. plugins > add and then type child theme

    my plugin should appear in the the list.
