  • I can’t seem to get a child theme created. It keeps telling me the parent is missing. Would it have anything to do with the style sheet being scss vs css?

  • Yes, the file must be named style.css. Perhaps review:

    Yes, but does it matter if it is scss vs css? I have a style.css file but then the child theme is missing some of the style options showing in the parent theme. It still has all the words, just not the design.

    Theme settings and options do not transfer to a child theme – so you have to redo those. Is that the issue?

    And yes, it matters. Why are you trying to change the name on the file?

    I am not trying to change the name on the file. I am just trying to make a child theme. I am a newbie and followed the instructions on the site. I double checked my spelling and reinstalled the parent theme. But the design is not showing up in my child theme.

    How do you redo the theme options and settings in the child theme? I thought you just had to make a style.css sheet in the child folder.

    Please post a link to your site.

    I have a tutorial on my site in regards to creating a child theme:

    Make sure that your child theme’s style.css file includes this whole chunk to work properly with Ward:

    Theme Name: Ward - Child theme
    Theme URI:
    Description: A basic child theme for Ward
    Author: c.bavota
    Author URI:
    Template:	ward
    Version: 0.1
    @import url("../ward/style.css");

    @ c.bavota…..i went and read your tutorial… seems like i did everything you said…i know my issue is not with one of your themes but I am in dire need to get this child theme created and this website developed….are you able to help on another theme issue? if so i can post the link to my thread or however you say it….thanks!


    @dateordutchdotcom – please do not post in other people’s threads – that’s not how these forums work.

    @wpyogi…sorry….same general issue so I thought it would be cool to ask someone who is actually online and replying a general question.
    in addition i did read his tutorial for reference. I thought that is what the whole forum setup is for everyone helping each other if you have specific issues. it would be wonderful if instead of constantly re-directing me you could possibly provide useful assistance on the issue.
    i think that is what forums should be meant for.
    thanks anyway. my apologizes to the original creator of this forum if i violated the forum code by asking a related question on your thread.
