When child theme is activated the formatting is wrong

  • I’ve spent a while now trying to create a child theme and I need help!

    I am using the ‘twenty eleven’ theme so I created a folder in the ‘themes’ directory called ‘twentyeleven-child’ I then ctreated a style.css using the following example:

    \/*
    Theme Name: Twentyeleven Child
    Description: Child theme for the twentyeleven theme
    Author: Your name here
    Template: twentyeleven
    */

    @import url(“../twentyeleven/style.css”);
    \

    But when I activate the theme file, it’s all messed up. the colors are the same, but none of my formatting is there.

    Can anyone help? Here’s my site:

    I have the understanding that you are supposed to create a child theme before any changes are made to the parent theme but I have only recently heard about child themes so I have already made quite a few changes to the parent theme.

    Please Help!
