    Hi Guys
    Love this theme..and I have used it on a number of sites.. the latest version: ‘responsive.’ makes a mess out of my child theme. Is there any way to help change this? I had to re-install responsive. .. all the other updates until now have been fine. I like to keep current with the updates. thanks 😉 for any suggestions.

    you can check how I use the child theme on this site:

    Here is how I fixed it without messing with the parent theme.. I added /core/css/
    /* =Import Styles
    -------------------------------------------------------------- */
    @import url('../responsive/core/css/style.css');



    sme problem and solved perfectly for me, thanks for the suggestion



    Do you have a header.php in the child theme? If there is this code in it then delete it.
    <?php wp_enqueue_style(‘responsive-style’, get_stylesheet_uri(), false, ‘1.7.9’);?>

    Also there should be no @import in the style.css

    yep this is happening to me. The update should come with a warning!! Im not even doing much in my child theme. Last update screwed up all my widget customisations too. So, its a dicey business using auto responsive updates!

    @studioactiv8, do I stick that in my custom (child theme) css?

    Adding the core css import into the child theme style.css will sort everything in one go – brilliant – thanks studioactiv8.

    @import url(‘../responsive/style.css’); /*retain usual import css*/
    @import url(‘../responsive/core/css/style.css’); /*add core responsive theme css */

    thanks guys – importing ‘core’ style sheet does indeed solve the problem. Spot on!!

    studioactiv8 – you beauty 🙂

    Thanks studioactiv8.

    Okay, sooo, I am having this issue as well with responsive theme. The only thing I have in the child theme is the child style.css and my customized front-page.php. I only have a few changes to the front-page.php that need to be maintained. Currently my changes are present in the parent theme, because I directly edited it (this is why I am creating a child theme because I don’t want to lose my changes when I update). Anyway, before I update responsive theme I want to make sure my child is displaying properly, and it is not! When I activate it, all my widgets are screwed up, moved around, and content changed. I don’t understand what is happening since it should be calling in the exact same thing that is showing in the parent perfectly!

    I tried adding the @import url(..’responsive/core/css/style.css’); line as suggested in this thread and it didn’t make a difference. Any other ideas!?? need help :/

    Whoops, i’m new to this and just learned that I should not post my questions on someone else’s thread!! Sorry :/ I’ll go make my own now! 🙂
