Support » Themes and Templates » Oxygen Header Disappears When Child Installed

  • I’m trying to create a child theme using Oxygen. When I create the files and refresh my web page, the navigation header bar underneath the header completely disappears. If I return to the parent theme, it’s back. But, the css and rtl files are essentially empty other than the import function. Does anyone know what might be causing this?

    Note: please respond using layman’s terms. I’m not an experienced coder.

    Which files have you in your Child Theme?

    I don’t understand the question…

    If you’re asking what files I’ve uploaded, the only one is style.css. I’ve changed its header information and imported the theme as specified in the documentation WordPress provides for building child themes.

    the child theme consists only of a style.css file, and this is what’s in the header:

    Theme Name: oxygen-child
    Description: A child theme of the Oxygen theme
    Author: Sherah Smith
    Template: oxygen

    @import url(“../oxygen/style.css”);

    Have you created a custom menu?
    What is your site url?

    ah, kevinhaig! thanks for that suggestion! I guess the menu was just reset when I switched over to the child theme. I hadn’t thought about that, thank you for reminding!

    I’m having problems with the same thing! I just recreated my custom menu, so the menu items are showing up, but now I’m missing the back-slash that separated each menu item… How do I get this back?

    My site is:
