Support » Fixing WordPress » Child Theme ignoring Parent CSS

  • Resolved culturegrab


    I created a new Child Theme, as per the instructions on the wordpress page. It let me activate it, but when I went to the blog, all the stylizing was gone. That is, it’s not picking up the style.css file from the parent theme, I think.

    `Theme Name: Twenty Fourteen Child
    Theme URI:
    Description: Twenty Fourteen Child Theme
    Author: Culture Grab
    Author URI:
    Template: twentyfourteen
    Version: 1.0.0
    Tags: light, dark, two-columns, right-sidebar, responsive-layout, accessibility-ready
    Text Domain: twentyfourteen child

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

    I really don’t know what I’m doing wrong. I’ve read so many pages and watched so many videos on how to create a child theme that I think I can do it in my sleep…but not really because it doesn’t work. Please help. I am out of ideas. Also, this is all super new to me, so please talk to me like I’m 5. 🙂

    Thanks a bunch!

  • Well, not sure what you’re doing wrong, but that info is basically correct. The “@import url” line that you have there is what makes it go get the parent theme’s stylesheet and import all the rules from it.
