Child Theme Issues Help

  • I am trying to create a child theme for this theme, but I keep getting the following error. I have double checked everything and can’t figure out the problem.

    Online Marketer Child
    Theme URI: http://wpthemes.co.nz/online-marketer/
    Description: Child theme for the Online Marketer theme
    Author URI: http://wpthemes.co.nz/
    Template: online-marketer

    Description: Template is missing.

    what is the right template?

    This theme right?


    Your child theme should have one file on it as a start: style.css can you post the contents of that file here?

    Use the code button: If it’s more 10 lines please use pastebin.com instead. 😉

    oh thank you for responding. I re-uploaded the file and it corrected the problem, weird.

    My current problem is that the changes in my child theme css are not taking effect. When I open firefox web developer, I see the changes, but they are crossed out, while those for the parent css are showing.

    More Details: my site (http://mtsupport.host22.com/)
    I created an additional sidebar: horizontal-1, and placed it above the menu. To style the sidebar. I added the following to my child theme `css:
    .widgettitle {
    border-bottom: 2px solid rgb(68, 68, 68);
    margin-bottom: 0px;
    .widget {
    background: none;
    clear: both;
    margin: 0px 28px 2.2em;
    padding: 1em;
    <strong>list-style: none;</strong>
    border-radius: none;
    box-shadow: none;
    color: none;
    .horizontal-1 {
    list-style: none;
    text-align: center;
    float: left;
    border: none;
    display: block;
    However, those changes are not taking effect. After I added this to my child theme header.php, <link rel=”stylesheet” type=”text/css” media=”all” href=”<?php echo get_stylesheet_uri(); ?>” /> the bolded part above – list-style takes effect.

    All the other changes unfortunately are still crossed out in firefox developer.
