    PROBLEM: Having difficulty installing child theme for Graphene theme.

    THE STEPS I’VE TAKEN:
    1. created a new directory called “GrapheneChild” in “wp-content/themes”

    2. To my root directory, I uploaded a file named “style.css.rtf” which contains the following code:

    /*
    Theme Name: Graphene Child
    Description: Child theme for the Graphene theme
    Author: Jan Probst
    Template: graphene
    */

    3. Renamed this file: style.css

    4. In my dashboard, went to Appearance/Themes to activate the child theme. The child theme is not there, and at the bottom of the page under “Broken Themes” is the following message:

    “The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template.
    Name Description
    Graphene Child\ The parent theme is missing. Please install the “graphene\” parent theme.”

    I have read numerous forum posts on this topic and just cannot figure out where I went wrong.

    Please advise.

    Graphene has its own support forum, where you’re more likely to get a quick response:

    Thank you! I’ve now posted my question in the Graphene forum.

    Never upload Rich Text Files…they contain hidden formatting codes – changing their filename on the server does not remove them. Upload CSS files created only from a plain text editor and saved as UTF-8 without BOM format.

    Also, you need to import a stylesheet in your child theme stylesheet

    /*
    Theme Name: Graphene Child
    Description: Child theme for the Graphene theme
    Author: Jan Probst
    Template: graphene
    */
    
    @import url("../graphene/style.css");

    The last line above is required to import a stylesheet from theme and is adjusted to correct theme folder and filename.
