Child Theme Stylesheet support is broken (2 posts)

    Hi, nice theme. I wanted to point out something I had to manually change to make this theme work for me that might help others who use this theme in the future as well.

    I am using a child theme I created to override some of the fonts and images, and none of my changes were showing up, because the way Functions.php is written, it does not check the child theme folder for sytlesheets, so everything in daylight.css overrides the child theme css files.

    Luckily this is not difficult to fix. The function reference ( http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_template_directory_uri ) explains that you should replace get_template_directory_uri() with get_stylesheet_directory_uri() when making the path to stylesheets.

    I hope you would consider making this change in the next release of this theme.

    Thanks for the really wonderful theme!

    I'm really new to WordPress and I'm trying to create a child theme for Brand New Day theme. I tried jojobear 99's advice. It did show the changes I was trying to make but it blocked the original layout design. Is there anyway that I can do to both make changes within the child theme css while still showing the original layout?
