Support » Themes and Templates » Child theme error “Template is missing”

  • I created a child theme of twentytwelve using the following in style.css:

    Theme Name: WAMSA
    Template: twentytwelve
    version: 0.1

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

    In Appearance > Theme, the template is listed with error:

    The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template.

    Description: Template is missing.

    The codex says only a style.css file is required, which is what I have.

    I uninstalled and reinstalled TwentyTwelve theme, without a change.

    Why is my child theme not being recognised?


    Here is what I am doing to generate this problem.

    1. Twenty Twelve theme is installed.
    2. I create a folder on my local computer, and create a style sheet style.css inside this folder.
    3. I place the code above into style.css, then I FTP the folder I created up into /wp-content/themes.
    4. When I go to Appearance > Themes, I receive the errors above.
