Trouble with creating child theme (4 posts)

    Hi,

    Just wondering if someone could help me with an issue i'm having creating a child theme. I've never had problems with this before but this has me quite stumped.

    So I followed the wordpress codex instructions to create a child theme. Created a directory in the same root where all themes are installed. I then created the style.css file in this folder and wrote all the necessary info in the header like so:

    /*
     Theme Name:     stattichild
     Description:    Statti Child Theme created by Cayenne Creative
     Author:         Cayenne Creative
     Author URI:     http://mywebsite.com/
     Template:       statti
     Version:        1.0.0
    */
    
    /* =Imports styles from the parent theme
    -------------------------------------------------------------- */
    @import url('../statti/style.css');

    When I write css changes, they don't work..... then i noticed the style.css file in the root of my theme does not contain any css but only calls the other multiple stylesheets which are located in a subfolder.

    How do I get my child theme to work considering this?

    Thanks in advance to any that can help!

    I'm sorry but as you are using a commercial parent theme, you need to seek support from the theme's developer/vendor. We do not support commercial products here.

    Yeah, I opened a ticket with the developer but have gotten no reply on this. Since i'm on a tight schedule to finish this website, I thought maybe someone on here might have had a similar issue and would be able to just point out what i was doing wrong or have any suggestions on what to try.

    The wordpress.org support forums are meant for the core application, themes and plugins that are distributed on wordpress.org. We have no access to, nor do we support, commercial themes downloaded.
