    Can you link your website & tell us what is your Child Theme folder name?

    sparkling-child

    import url (../sparkling/style.css)

    for the theme name I copied everything at the top of the style in the parent folder

    One thing is missing from style.css header why it doesn’t show up in theme preview:

    Theme Name: Sparkling Child

    Probably some more details are missing as well. But it is difficult to give you suggestion when we don’t see your code.

    this is the cost.

    Just copy/paste this code. This is what I use for my theme, if it doesn’t work for you then I can’t help you with that.

    You should understand that screenshot in theme preview will be blank because there is no screenshot if you haven’t uploaded it manually.

    And make sure that child theme folder is called sparkling-child

    Thanks For you answer it worked
