Hello, I seem to have problems installing a child theme for Expound. I’m new to this, so here is what I’m doing so far:
I created a folder called: “expound-child”
Inside is a document called: “style.css”
Here is what is in the “style.css” doc:
Theme Name: Expound Child
Theme URI: http://wordpress.org/themes/expound
Author URI: http://asmmastering.com
Description: A child theme of the expound theme created for ilase.co.uk
I’ve tried both using WordPress “Add New Theme” (zipping the folder) and Cyberduck to FTP the folder or just the style.css to the proper folder.
But when I go to install the child theme I get this:
Destination folder already exists.
Theme install failed.
Theme installed successfully.
On my WP admin Themes page at the bottom is noted this: Expound Child\ The parent theme is missing. Please install the “expound\” parent theme.
Previously it was stating I was missing the php.index page, so the failure problem seems to change.
