Support » Themes and Templates » My Child theme instal, went horribly Wrong!

  • Hi All,

    I recently and relunctly decided to use a child theme, everyone was raving about it, so i thought, OK maybe its time to migrate to the child era!!

    I followed all the instruction, and created my first child theme,

    But……
    Something….
    Went wrong…..

    The all important theme editor had disapeared….

    all the header.php
    content.
    footer.
    etc…

    have all gone, I cant edit nothing….

    and i have an error showing at the top of the theme editor page:

    Warning: file_get_contents(/var/www/vhosts/kings-associates.com/httpdocs/wp-content/themes/child themestyle.css) [function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /var/www/vhosts/kings-associates.com/httpdocs/wp-content/plugins/wp-editor/classes/WPEditorThemes.php on line 103#

    Please advice and help a newbie child…..

    Thanks in advance

  • The last time I did something weird, my host could put back the missing files. 🙂

    Maybe you should give a try until someone find what went wrong.

    What has caused this to happen,
    What files are missing?

    it looks like a slash / is missing… and everything stands in the error message!

    Warning: file_get_contents(/var/www/vhosts/kings-associates.com/httpdocs/wp-content/themes/child themestyle.css) [function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /var/www/vhosts/kings-associates.com/httpdocs/wp-content/plugins/wp-editor/classes/WPEditorThemes.php on line 103#

    the WPEditorThemes.php wants to call the Stylesheet-file from the current theme, but as you can see there is standing a wrong path …wp-content/themes/child themestyle.css.
    I think the folder of your theme is child and WP wants to call the themestyle.css but there is a missing slash between child and themestyle.css

    Hi all,

    I made a child theme((Blaskan) after making changes to my parent theme, and my child theme does not look like my parent theme. I even tried deleating the parent theme and resinstalling it so that I can make the child theme again with an unedited version, but the parent theme was reinstalled with all my changes intact. I want to know how I can get my child theme to look like the parent theme, whether it’s the original template or with the changes I made.
