    Is it possible to use a child theme with Absolum ?

    Sure, I just setup and made one myself. Just style.css but it worked fine.

    What functions are you trying to put into your child theme? I don’t think that old thread applies with this version.

    Remember, don’t copy any of the parent theme functions into your child theme.

    I started from here. I created absolum-child subfolder and created a style.css here and added the following:

    /*
    Theme Name:     absolum-child
    Theme URI:      http://personaltrainingsevenoaks.co.uk
    Description:    Child theme for absolum
    Author:         Mike Giles
    Author URI:     http://personaltrainingsevenoaks.co.uk
    Template:       absolum
    Version:        0.1.0
    */
    
    @import url("../absolum/style.css");

    Activated the child theme in wp-admin.
    However any css I place in the child css doesn’t get applied.
    (I’m doing this on a localhost)

    Can you give me an example of that CSS? That way I can try it on my own test installation. Your style.css file above is virtually identical to my own.

    Hi,
    Just trying to change colors at the moment:

    #wrapper {
    	background: #F7A5FA;
    	margin-top: 20px;
    	padding: 0 20px;
      clear: both;
      position:relative;
    }
    
    #site-title a {
    	color: #F7A5FA;
      background:#1a1a1a;
      padding:0 10px;
    	text-decoration: none;
      text-shadow:0 1px 2px #111;
      float:left;
    }

    Thanks

    Hi,
    I’ve also noticed that the header custom image doesn’t display when the child is activated (just the default blue) but does when the parent is activated.

    Regards,
