Have you gone through this?
yes, as best I can…I have followed the instructions. I
am a novice, stumbling and bumbling.
I must have given the wrong answer. Yes, I have set the customizer to Grid layout, I have selected ‘featured’ as tag name and I have tagged several articles as ‘featured.’
They show in the ‘content’ section, stacked atop the previous.
I tested by selecting ‘slider’- no change. I tested by removing ‘feature’ tag marking some ‘sticky’ and they do indeed show, at the top of the content section, stacked.
I see other url’s from other posts that have a grid. The only difference is they have pictures. Is having a picture on the post a requrement? I guess I can test that way
I have my header set to random selections of uploaded images. I have tried removing the header image, but still no grid.
Yes, I think you do need to have featured images assigned –
This will display your posts, displaying the featured image.
Does it work in the parent theme? Your child theme isn’t set up correctly, BTW – the style.css file should not contain a copy of the parent file.
it’s been a while, but I think I copied the parent file then modified the few areas I wanted to change.
How can a child theme work at all if it doesn’t start out exactly like the original?
Just asking. This is my first attempt at a child theme and I’m a little antsy about changing CSS anyway.
A child theme imports the parent styles via the @import line – the style.css file should contain only this to start with:
/* Theme Name: Twenty Fourteen Child Theme URI: http://example.com/twenty-fourteen-child/ Description: Twenty Fourteen Child Theme Author: John Doe Author URI: http://example.com Template: twentyfourteen Version: 1.0.0 Tags: light, dark, two-columns, right-sidebar, responsive-layout, accessibility-ready Text Domain: twenty-fourteen-child */ @import url("../twentyfourteen/style.css"); /* =Theme customization starts here -------------------------------------------------------------- */
Then you ADD CSS which will override the existing parent theme styles.
thanks for your patience.
using your image and information from
I started over. Deleted old child theme and the plug-in I had used to get started.
I created the directory and the style.css using your post from above but now my themes page in WP is telling me:
The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template.
Twenty Fourteen/twentyfourteen-child-01 Template is missing.
where do I go from here?
Theme Name: Twenty Fourteen Child
Theme URI: http://example.com/twenty-fourteen-child/
Description: Twenty Fourteen Child Theme
Author URI: http://example.com
Tags: light, dark, two-columns, right-sidebar, responsive-layout, accessibility-ready
Text Domain: twenty-fourteen-child
/* =Theme customization starts here
This looks strange:
Your child theme folder should be directly in the theme’s folder, not inside twentyfourteen’s folder:
wp-content themes twentyfourteen twentyfourteen-child style.css
Is that what you have?
copied from my cPanel display:
themes american_dreams_wp_theme classic default premiumseries teaparty teaparty01 twentyfourteen twentyfourteen-child twentyten twentythirteen twentytwelve
Can you look at your twentyfourteen theme (parent) and see what’s in that style.css file?
Earlier I reactived the ‘stock’ twentyfourteen theme. This is the header for the style.css now active.
