I'm very new to this and trying to do a few minor edits to the Twentytwelve, but having a minor problem with the child theme: I don't think the child is importing its parent. When I click "live preview," it does not seem have the 2012 style.
I added a new folder under "wp-content/themes" called "twentytwelve-child", created a new "style.css" file and entered the following code:
/* Theme Name: Twenty Twelve DDChild Theme URI: http://deaddarlings.com Description: Dead Darlings Child theme for the Twenty Twelve theme Author: Jack Ferris Author URI: deaddarlings.com Template: twentytwelve Version: 0.1.0 */ @import url("../twentytwelve/style.css");
When I edit the CSS file, my cpanel defaults to "utf-8" for character coding, if that helps.
Thanks in advance for any help!
