    Hey Guys,

    I've searched and tried all the forum prostings I can find and I am having what seems to be the fairly common problem of not being able to see my child-theme in the Appearence>Themes list to activate.

    Parent theme is the built in Twenty Eleven theme with all the default folders and settings. My settings are:

    Parent Theme - this is currently active:
    /themes/twentyeleven

    Child Theme:
    /themes/twentyeleven/fighttheflab
    /themes/twentyeleven/fighttheflab/style.css (ANSI encoding if it makes any difference)

    CSS Contents:

    /*
    Theme Name:     Fight the Flab
    Theme URI:      http://www.fighttheflab.net/
    Description:    Child theme for the Twenty Eleven theme
    Author:         admin
    Author URI:     http://fighttheflab.net/?page_id=32
    Template:       twentyeleven
    Version:        0.1.0
    */
    
    @import url("../twentyeleven/style.css");
    
    #branding img {
    height: 178px;
    width: 104px;
    }
