I'd like to start off by saying that I find Tempera to be the most noob friendly theme ever. So far I am loving the option filled settings.
I do have an issue with creating a child theme.
When I create the child theme manually with just a style.css file with the proper header and @import rule, the child theme loads with very odd styling. The styling I applied (color border etc) is all there but the java seems to be messed up. Styling defined within the Tempera settings like background color, background image etc are gone.
I have three different domains trying out this theme, so on another domain, I also tried to create the child with the same results.
Thinking something was messed up and since I had really just started on this particular site, I opened myphp, removed the user, and deleted all references to Tempera in the tables. I then uninstalled WordPress and deleted the contents of all wordpress directories through ftp. Then from the panel i uninstalled wordpress and reinstalled. Version 3.8.1 up from 3.8. I logged in and loaded the tempera theme. Looked good, no styling holdovers :). I immediately created the child theme in the same fashion as above. No joy.
The theme is totally messed up. Elements are randomly strewn across the page. I activated the funky child so you can see the results if that helps but now there is just an error message.
Any idea what I might be doing wrong?
Thanks in advance,
