Installing a Child Theme on a Sub Domain

  • Hi,

    I have successful installed a child theme on my main site http://www.wow-scotland.co.uk – I have a number of other different domains (which due to the hosting package I’ve got are listed as subdomains) however I have not been able to install the child theme on any of the subdomains. Any ideas?

    Many thanks,

    Gordon

    Are you running one instance of WordPress, one instance of WordPress with MultiSite enabled, or multiple instances of WordPress?

    Hi Chip,

    I am running multiple instances of WordPress – looked into doing the multisite function but looked like it could be a bit beyond my skills!

    Thanks

    So, on the subdomain in question, the one on which you want to use the Child Theme, you have:

    1) WordPress installed and working properly?
    2) The Parent Theme installed?
    3) The Child Theme installed?

    How are you attempting to install the Child Theme? What errors are you getting?

    I have tried to create the child theme in my C Panel like I did with my main site by creating a new folder and a style.css file. I have wordpress twentyten installed as my main theme. However, the ‘custom’ theme that I have created does not show up in my themes section. Any ideas?

    Many thanks for your help!

    Why not jut copy your working Child Theme from your primary domain to your subdomain? e.g. from your primary domain, copy:

    \wp-content\themes\<child-theme-name>

    And paste the <child-theme-name> folder (and contents) into your subdomain:

    \wp-content\themes\

    Many thanks Chip for your help – that’s me up and running now. Really appreciate the input. If you are in Scotland sometime I owe you a beer!
