March 27, 2014 – After reading many post regarding child-themes, apparently I am not alone with this issue.
The instructions are easy enough. Create a folder for the child theme and insert a blank style.css text file. Open the style.css file in the parent theme and copy from */ to /*. Change the file name to child, add the template line, & the @import under the /*. Easy. And WordPress tells me I need to add a template. There is no child theme to activate.
The first theme I tried WP said the theme was not installed (it is installed). I am now on my second theme. When I look for the name of the template to put on that line I use the end of the parent’s theme url for the template name. Should I be doing something different? What template is WP referring too? Parent or Child? If I need a template file in the child theme, what template do I take from the Parent?
