  • Hello all,

    I’m hoping someone can help me figure this out. I’m creating a child theme for a website. The site is It’s a news portal and we chose to use the Kernel Theme by Orange Themes. What I am wanting to do is create child themes for the various site sections. We want the “blue” breaking news bar and background for the main entrance, but then would like to change the color of the theme by Pages and Categories (sports [deportes] – red, society [sociedad] – orange, vida/entretenimiento [lifestyle] – green, classifieds [clasificados] – black ).

    I am using 2 plugins to make this happen: GYS themed categories and headspace. In this way I can change the theme for both pages and categories. I created a child theme, called green-kernel to test it, but I can’t get it to work. The theme (it’s from Orange Themes) comes with a control panel, but this control panel doesn’t reference color, so I thought I could create the directory for my theme & include the style.css, the images folder and the subfolder for the theme “css” that houses 4 other style sheets. I added all the necessary text in the the style sheets and created full http links to the images instead of referencing its corresponding folder to make sure I would have no issues, but there’s no change– not for categories or pages, what am I missing?

    I tried looking at Orange Themes to get some help, but it didn’t work so I’m here.
