Expound
[resolved] Child Theme style.css (9 posts)

    I just changed to the Expound-theme after testing it locally (including a child theme) and everything worked like it should be. I've now uploaded the theme and created a child theme as well. The weird thing is that it's not working like it was locally.

    My style.css in the child theme looks like this:
    /*
    Theme Name: Expound Child
    Theme URI: http://songfestivalweblog.nl/
    Description: Child theme for the Expound theme
    Author: Songfestivalweblog
    Author URI: http://songfestivalweblog.nl/about/
    Template: expound
    Version: 0.1.0
    */

    @import url("../expound/style.css");

    After trying a live preview all looks strange, there's no lay-out at all. Also in my log files there's a 404-message

    [26/Dec/2013:00:02:34 +0100] "GET /wp-content/themes/expound-child/wp-content/themes/expound/style.css HTTP/1.1" 404 7392 "http://www.songfestivalweblog.nl/wp-content/themes/expound-child/style.css?ver=20131116" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:26.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/26.0"

    I've no idea what i'm doing wrong. Can anyone help?

    Looks like you have caching on your site? Try clearing that.

    Tried that, didn't work.

    Try turning that plugin off. Also I don't see a child theme active on your site.

    There's none right now, as it's not working. But when trying the live preview it's the design is all messed up...

    I turned the plugin (W3 total cache) off, but no effect.

    the problem to me seems to be the 404 in this file, but the style.css itself looks ok to me: /wp-content/themes/expound-child/wp-content/themes/expound/style.css

    This doesn't look right in your current theme:

    @import url('css/expound.css?v=20131116')

    That's the filename I get in the original style.css of the Expound-theme

    @import url('css/reset.css');
    @import url('css/expound.css?v=20131116');

    Hmm, you're right.

    Can you actually switch to the child theme, so we can see what's going on with it?

    It seems to be working now, don't know why though. Child theme is activated and working.
