Parent Theme for Themage (3 posts)

    I'm trying to install a child theme based on Themage, and it tells me to install Themage as the parent, but it's already installed as my current theme. Would anyone know what I would put on the template line? Is that even my problem? This is my first time making a child theme, and I thought I was following the instructions correctly. (I've tried it in both upper and lower case)

    Theme Name: Themage Child
    Description: A simple, lightweight, responsive, accessible, future-friendly theme

    @import url("../Themage/style.css") ;

    You're really close - the only thing is that you have to use the same exact name as is on the theme folder for the parent - so Themage won't work - it has to be themage here:

    Template: themage

    And here:

    @import url("../themage/style.css") ;

    After you change that, switch to another theme and then back to the child theme. It should work then.
