I am trying to create a child theme for the Smart One. I have followed directions TO THE LETTER. I know I have successfully done this in the past but now, no matter what theme I try to create the child for, it says the theme is broken and I need to install the parent theme.
I can see the parent theme on my server and I have copied and pasted it into the style.css for the child. My template is smartone and my directory name for the theme is smartone. So what is the problem? I tried deleting everything and reinstalling my theme, creating the child theme area anew but it made no difference.
I'm embarrassed to even ask this but I can't see what I'm doing wrong. Suggestions? Thank you,
