Support » Themes and Templates » Child Theme not visible after set-up

  • Resolved sennomo


    I followed this guide to get a child theme up and running, but it doesn’t appear in Appearance > Themes to activate. I’ve tried logging in again, but the theme still doesn’t appear.

    Here is my style.css…

    Theme Name:     Oulu Red Cross
    Theme URI:      http: //
    Description:    Customisation theme for Oulu Red Cross member site. Uses twentyeleven from WordPress as parent.
    Author:         Sennomo
    Author URI:     http: //
    Template:       twentyeleven
    Version:        2011.11.19
    @import url("../twentyeleven/style.css");
    #site-title a {
        color: #D81E05;

    …the path is, public_html/wp/wp-content/themes/twentyeleven/twentyeleven-child/style.css

    I can’t see the new theme to activate it. What have I done wrong here?

  • The Child Theme needs to rest in the /wp-content/themes/ directory — not within the Parent Theme directory.
