    When I recently installed a theme, I received a notification in WordPress that the child had been installed but not the parent. How should I go about installing the parent?

    Thanks everyone!

    You should install the parent theme first. see https://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    The template: line in the child themes stylesheet needs to be the exact name of the directory your parent theme resides in.

    /*
     Theme Name:   Twenty Fourteen Child
     Theme URI:    http://example.com/twenty-fourteen-child/
     Description:  Twenty Fourteen Child Theme
     Author:       John Doe
     Author URI:   http://example.com
     Template:     twentyfourteen
    */
