Support » Theme: Bouquet » Unable to load child theme (fails to recognize parent?)

  • Resolved jaBote



    I’m using this theme on Windows localhost for tests and on a VM running Debian Linux. All my edits are fine on my localhost Windows, but when I move the child theme folder to the Debian Linux one, something like this happens (seen from browser):

    As you can see, the parent Bouquet theme is there but somehow fails to recognize the parent Bouquet theme. Weird enough, when I click the red Delete text and confirm the deletion, I do get the “Theme deleted” message but the theme does still appear there.

    Here’s my CSS file:

    Theme Name: Bouquet Child
    Theme URI:
    Author: Automattic
    Author URI:
    Description: Bouquet is an elegant, simple theme inspired by the beauty found in flowers. Notable features include two floral schemes, a responsive layout structure that adapts to smaller devices, a right sidebar, a full-width template, support for post formats, custom background, and custom header.
    Version: 1.2.2
    Template: Bouquet
    License: GNU General Public License v2 or later
    License URI:
    Tags: blue, orange, pink, white, light, one-column, two-columns, right-sidebar, custom-background, custom-header, custom-menu, full-width-template, post-formats, rtl-language-support, translation-ready, responsive-layout
    /* =Header
    -------------------------------------------------------------- */
    #site-title {
    	text-transform: none;  /* jaBote: dislike it */
    #site-title a,
    #site-title a:hover,
    #site-description {
    	color: #104c25 !important;

    My functions.php file just does enqueue the style to the parent. I haven’t found anything of help via a quick search on this theme support or the codex. Can you please lend me a hand on it?

    Thank you in advance!

  • Try uncapitalizing the theme name here:

    Template: Bouquet

    Thank you! It worked.

    Seems strange why Windows actually asked me to capitalize the theme name, then Debian doesn’t want it like that.

    Much appreciated!

    That does seem strange that it would work that way – as that name typically MUST be identical (case sensitive) to the name of the parent theme folder (not the theme name itself).

    Yes. I tested it out right and it indeed is. So the case insensitive OS is Windows, as expected.

    Thank you again!

    You’re welcome :)!
