I am somewhat new with wordpress. I just joined in with a wordpress project and they are currently using a child/parent theme, but they wanted to make their child theme stand on its own without a parent theme. We plan to make the site look similar to what it is right now, but use bootstrap instead to make the page responsive.
I looked up the wordpress hierarchy, and I learned how to create a child theme, but I couldn't find anything on how to make a child theme stand on its own without a parent theme.
I removed the 'Template' variable from the style.css, but the dashboard still complains that it couldn't find the parent theme.
What do I need to do to make the child not look for the parent?
And, are there any tips/snags that I should look out for when building this up?
