[resolved] Child not connecting to Twenty Fourteen style (7 posts)

    Hello Friends,

    I am with a new server, but for some reason when I try to use my Child, the site lists everything, but there is no style sheet.

    My site is at: http://dgmontgomery.com/

    I am just waiting for the Registrar to unlock my domain so for now using name as the domain.

    At first I thought perhaps I might not have the correct path for the style import of the twenty fourteen. So I typed the whole thing out including the : @import url("../twentyfourteen/style.css");

    But that did not work so I put it back to @import url("../twentyfourteen/style.css");

    I have FTP access and have, my Child style.css, a screen capture image and an images folder in the Twenty Fourteen - Child folder, -I believe all is well there.

    If anyone has any ideas why my child is not working I would be very grate ful to hear your thoughts and ideas.

    Many thanks for your help in advance.

    What's the name of your child theme folder?

    Hello All,

    My child theme folder I have called: Twenty Fourteen-Child and it sits in the Themes folder.

    I have taken a screen shot at: http://dgmontgomery.com/wp-content/themes/twentyfourteen-child/images/ftp.jpg

    You can see, that for some odd reason it is not pulling in the Twenty Fourteen style.css.

    Thank you guys for your efforts..

    That did it!
    Thank you so very much Andrew.

    I probably did that to label the doc.

    Thank you again and thank you to all who took a look at it also.
