    Sorry to cross-post, but I am having a problem creating a child theme, and it may be specific to the parent Writr theme. And Katheryn seems to be a wizard. And I’m still clueless after reading a half-dozen pages claiming a “simple” solution.

    For the original problem, see my comments (“PayneStudios”) to this topic “Exact code to put in Child themes functions.php for enqueuing all stylesheets

    I then realized that there was a specific forum area for the Writr theme (here), found the topic “Post icons in child theme are tiny“, and tried both suggestions, separately: priority 11 and @import.
    The “priority 11” gave me my original problem: css/wider.css is not being read.
    I believe the @import caused the parent style.css to not be read at all.

    I went back to the Codex page, followed the link to the Stack Exchange topic “Versioning @import of parent theme’s style.css“; tried Bernie’s latest post (edited Mar 23 at 17:13). Back to original problem: css/wider.css is not read.

    PayneStudios – could you please update Writr to the latest version, 1.2.6.

    If you still have any trouble, please let me know.

    Keep in mind that to create a child theme you need to either enqueue the parent’s stylesheet, or import it, not both.
