    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.

    That doesn’t seem to work either

    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.
    Not right?
    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.

    WPyogi,
    thanks for your patience.
    using your image and information from
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes
    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:

    Broken Themes

    The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template.
    Name Description
    Twenty Fourteen/twentyfourteen-child-01 Template is missing.

    where do I go from here?

    What do you have in your style.css file?

    /*
    Theme Name: Twenty Fourteen Child
    Theme URI: http://example.com/twenty-fourteen-child/
    Description: Twenty Fourteen Child Theme
    Author: Krebs
    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
    ————————————————————– */

    This looks strange:

    Twenty Fourteen/twentyfourteen-child-01

    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.

    do I need to copy deeper?
