    Having trouble activating my child theme. I am getting the error. The parent theme is missing. Please install the “StrapVert” parent theme.

    Here is the style sheet I created.
    /*
    Theme Name: StrapVert-Child
    Theme URI:
    Description: StrapVert Theme
    Author: JonathanLapinsky
    Author URI:
    Template: StrapVert
    Version: 1.1.1
    */

    @import url(‘wordpress/strapvert.1.1.1/strapvert/style.css’);

    Try changing these two lines:

    Template: strapvert

    and

    @import url('../strapvert/style.css');

    Unfortunately same error it just says strapvert instead of StrapVert

    Do you have the parent theme installed? Is your file structure correct?

    wp-content
        themes
            strapvert
            strapvertchild
                   styles.css

    The error also notes that themes must have a style sheet and template. Is there possibly something else I need to add to my child folder besides a style sheet?

    My file structure is

    wp-content
       themes
          strapvert.1.1.1
          strapvert.1.1.1-child
             syle.css

    Is your style.css file mispelled or was that a typo?

    Also, try removing the numbers from the folder name – change it to:

    strapvert-child

    It was a typo. My fault. So I deleted the theme. Uploaded just the strapvert file not the strapvert.1.1.1, then changed my child folder to strapvert-child per your recommendation and it works! Thanks so much for your help!
