    Hi @boxcandy,

    so what have you done to change the style.css ?

    I can delete every line of the child theme style sheet and it has NO effect. There must be something wrong with the link the style sheet

    the theme seems to enqueue the parent theme’s style.css regardless whether you use a child theme;

    you could add a functions.php to your child theme with the necessary code to enqueue your child theme’s style.css;

    example of new functions.php:

     function zAliveChild_scriptsAndStyles() {
        wp_enqueue_style( 'zAliveChild-style', get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/style.css', array( 'bootstrap','bootstrap-responsive' ) );
    add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'zAliveChild_scriptsAndStyles', 20 );

    Hi all,

    I’m checking this issue now and it seems to be a bug while loading the style sheet file.

    bug located,

    in version 1.1.10 , functions.php on line 439

    function zAlive_scriptsAndStyles(){

    wp_enqueue_style( ‘zAlive-style’, get_template_directory_uri() . ‘/style.css’, array( ‘bootstrap’,’bootstrap-responsive’ ) );


    the second parameter get_template_directory_uri() . ‘/style.css’ does not work for child theme,I replaced it with get_stylesheet_uri() and it works fine now.

    Thanks @boxcandy and @alchymyth !

    Thanks for the replies guys, Zenoven I replaced the code as you suggested and it seems to be working fine now, thanks. Nice theme by the way!
