    I am getting this error –

    The parent theme is missing. Please install the “TwentyEleven” parent theme.

    I am already running the twenty eleven parent them and my child theme is as follows:

    Theme name: Twenty Eleven Child
    Description: Child them for TwentyEleven wordpress theme
    Them URI:
    Author: Carrozza Surfboards Huntington Beach
    Template: TwentyEleven

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

    I created the child them in hostgator ftp: public_html/wp-content/themes/TwentyElevenChild

    I tried installing twentyten then reinstalling twentyeleven parent to see if it was just a bug or something but I still get the same error. I have googled tons of scenarios about this issue but no real solution that I can understand seems to be available.

    I am pretty new to wordpress: could it be that this error is showing up because I already installed some plugins and kind of built my site before i created the child theme?

    my site is

    Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
