Support » Theme: Expound » Child theme

  • Hello,

    First of all, I’d like you to know that your theme looks great!
    I’m new with wordpress and I’m learning how to develop our non-profit website. I uploaded your theme and I also uploaded a Child theme, but when I activated it, it look weird. Below is the style.css that I wrote:

    Theme Name: Expound Child
    Theme URI:
    Description: Child theme for the Expound
    Author: Lorena
    Author URI:
    Template: expound
    Version: 0.1.0

    @import url(“../expound/style.css”);

    Could you please help me figure out what’s wrong?
    You can see how it looks if you go to:

    Than you and I REALLY need some help!

  • Check that your file structure is correct:


    EDIT – sorry posted a wrong version – this IS what you want.

    It is correct.. 🙂

    I uploaded three childthemes:

    Twenty Eleven => worked
    Twenty Twelve and Expound => same issue!

    Try removing the capital letters in the theme folder name – sometimes that causes problems…

    I’m getting a not found error for this file path:

    Did you use a plain text editor to make the style.css file?

    A space within folder name ( same problem as many previous issues ).

    /wp-content/themes/Expound Child/style.css

    So temporary activate Twentytwelve first.

    then change this folder name

    Expound Child

    To this


    and then switch back to it.

    The file name was the problem.
    For the Twenty Twelve I renamed the file with: twentytwelve-child and for Expound-Child I renamed it: expound-child

    It worked!!! THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH!! 🙂

    Have a great weekend!


    Today I uploaded a new version of Catch Everest Pro 1.6
    Then I also uploaded the new child theme for it and I get the following message:

    Broken Themes

    The parent theme is missing. Please install the “catch-everest-pro” parent theme.

    I tried everything that you asked me to do 8 months ago, and I’m probably doing something wrong since it didn’t work this time.

    Here are the facts:

    1. The new Catch Everest Pro version is 1.6
    2. The parent name file is: catch-everest-pro
    3. The child theme name file is: catch-everest-pro-child
    4. Below is what I have in the style.css for the new child theme:
    Can you tell me what’s wrong with it?

    Theme Name: Catch-Everest-Pro-Child
    Theme URI:
    Description: Child theme for the Catch Everest Pro
    Author: Lorena
    Author URI:
    Template: catch-everest-pro
    Version: 1.6

    @import url(“../catch-everest-pro/style.css”);

    HELP please!!!

    I have activated an expound child theme to test only the changing of the font-family for headlines. This works. But now there is no image in the header and the dropdown menu becomes a seven lines text. The link function is ok. I have @imported first ../expound/styles.css, in another try ../expound/css/reset.css and ../expound/css/expound.css. All the same shit.
