[resolved] Child Theme (7 posts)

    I am learning to develop a website locally using MAMP.

    I created a new folder inside wp-content/themes.. named it "mesocolumn-child" and created a style.css file inside the folder with the following content:

    /*
     Theme Name:   Mesocolumn Child
     Description:  Mesocolumn Child Theme
     Author:       Me
     Template:     mesocolumn
     Version:      1.0.0
    */
    
    @import url(“../mesocolumn/style.css");

    Then I went over to dashboard and activated the child theme.

    After activating, I can see the site but everything appears to be screwed up.. there is a slider there, but the colors and positioning have all changed.

    My guess is that something is missing.....In order to get the child theme working exactly like the parent theme, do i need to include any other files inside the child theme folder, apart from style.css?

    thanks in advance

    Hello Richie,
    Child Theme with Slider Enabled pushes the side bar and Tabbed Side bar downwards.
