[Resolved] Child Theme

    @abcdefghijklmnop

    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
