Child Theme not finding Parent Theme

    I followed the steps on http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    However, I’m still told by wordpress that there s no parent theme installed…

    I tried uppercase and lowercase for the template name. Here is my css:

    /*
    Theme Name: Modernize Child
    Theme URI: -
    Description: Modernize WordPress Theme Child
    Version: 2.23
    Template: modernize
    License:
    License URI:
    */
    
    @import url("../modernize_v2-23/style.css");
    
    .notice {font-size:12px;line-height:4px;font-style:italic;}

    Here is the error: This theme is broken. The parent theme is missing. Please install the “modernize” parent theme.

    Modernize is obviously installed and from the editor, it shows in the drop down and it clearly says Modernize. My theme is in the drop down as well and says Modernize Child. It’s in the wp-content/themes directory which lists the following folders: modernize_v2-23-child
    modernize_v2-23
    twentytwelve
    twentyeleven

    I’m not sure why it’s telling me there is no parent theme installed!
