    I’m trying to create a child theme the for Twenty Eleven. I have FileZilla and have connected with my host server. I found my theme on their server and created a child theme folder and placed into it a document that contains the child theme code that I found on here and youtube. I returned to my theme refreshed and no child theme. I think the problem is in my wordpad doc. It doesn’t want to save it as a style.css. It changes it to a style.txt. Tutorials say save as a plain text doc, but it always warns that all formatting will be lost. I tried using notepad with no better luck. Is plain text the same as a text doc?

    Here’s the code I am putting into the doc.

    Theme name: Twentyeleven Child
    Description: Child theme for the twenty eleven theme
    Author: Rob
    Template: twentyeleven

    @import url(“../twentyeleven/style.css”);
