    Since the update, changes in the style sheet of my child theme are not working. It is using the parent theme code rather than the ones in the child them.

    How to fix?

    Thanks!

    I have this at the top of the style sheet.
    /*
    Theme Name: my theme name
    Description: Child Theme for Sliding Door
    Author: me
    Author URI: again lol
    Template: sliding-door
    */

    @import url("../sliding-door/style.css");
    @import url("../sliding-door/dark.css");
    @import url("../sliding-door/light.css");
    @import url("../sliding-door/imagemenu/imageMenu.css");

    Activate your child theme.
    Click edit .css and paste your child theme.css code there.

    THIS IS A STOP GAP MEASURE ONLY at least you can get your page back and looking decent until there is a good fix. Most of my edits showed.

    The .css edit feature is not properly functional on the sliding door theme.

    Do not remove your original child theme. Your child theme .css changes will not show, you will lose your edited .php pages and you will get an error message.

    NOW WE NEED TO WAIT FOR A PROPER FIX:)) I'll be sure to post if I see it first:))

    You might be thinking this is a URI issue. It's not.

    Sorry I can't do better someone who codes will come along:))

    This is what I'm going to do tomorrow--how can it go wrong?

    I've wasted an entire day on this! I have a feeling a separate child theme will still be necessary for php template changes. The annoying thing was that the child theme rendered perfectly on the desktop server!

    There should be an award for getting this theme working.

    I put my first wordpress theme up in a night and I had never so much as glanced at a wordpress theme before. Just loaded the plugins, widgets, pages and categories, edited for a custom header and footer and I was done. A well designed theme is like that.
    (end of venting)

    But Kudos to the Author for attempting to create a theme with a few innovations that has the potential to be highly interactive.

    My child theme is active, thanks. (and not taking the changes)

    Yes, create a child theme if you plan on changing the layout! Good luck!
