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
