    I am fairly new to wordpress.org and have built a site with the clean retina theme. As I wanted to make some changes with code I have tried to build a child theme. However, although I have managed to create the child theme and activated it, I cannot get it to take the parent theme’s design. Everything just appears like a list of details.

    The site is http://www.christopher-dyson.co.uk (my husband)

    Here is the .css sheet I created;

    /*
    Theme Name: Clean Retina Child
    Theme URI: http://www.christopher-dyson/clean-retina-child/
    Description Clean Retina Child Theme
    Author Sue Carroll
    Author URI: http://www.christopher-dyson.co.uk
    Template: clean-retina
    */
    @import url(“../clean-retina/style.css”);

    Also my name is coming up as anonymous under the child theme
    I have swapped back to clean retina just to allow the child theme to update and deactivated all plug ins. I have searched on this forum but still cannot find out what is wrong.
    As I say, I am new to all this so could anyone tell me if there is anything obviously wrong I am doing?
