TwentyTwelve Timeout Using Editor (header.php)

  • i made a child theme of twenty twelve, and i’m trying to basically copy/paste the header.php of the parent to the child, but i keep getting a timeout.

    i can paste maybe half the header, it looks like up to the </head>, but if i add anymore, it keeps giving me page cannot be displayed.

    i talked to server company, everything seems fine.. any ideas what this could be?

    Have you tried simply uploading the header.php in your child theme via FTP?
    I find it easier to work in a text editor and just update the child theme that way.

    yes i have tried this 2 times Christine.. the oddest thing happens, when i go to see it after i upload it, it is empty! the odd thing is when im uploading it, it takes about 15-30 seconds to upload it as if it is not working correctly… i really cant make any sense of it. then i open it in editor (and i know the file is there, i have the original file on my computer all filled in all ready) and there is nothing there.

    it doesnt make any sense. im thinking it has to be a bug or something with twentytwelve because this doesnt happen with other themes… i wanted to use this theme too! boo

    That is weird. I’ve created a TwentyTwelve Child theme and had no issues.

    Have you tried:
    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem? If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    no plugins activated right now.. this is a fresh install. =\

    i have some other themes on here, ill try deleting them
