  • Resolved strategizeme


    Hello, great theme!
    I would like to use child theme but it seems not working.

    What files – including style.css – should be included in the child theme directory?

    Currently, I have style.css in the child theme directory and I get a blank page after activating the theme.

    Using WPMU.

    Thank you for your support.

    Hi strategizeme,

    To make a child theme for WPChimp Countdown, you should have a directory called wpchimp-countdown-child inside your wp-content/themes directory and under that directory you should have at least a style.css file (that’s the only requirement).

    For example having this css file would work:

     Theme Name:   WPChimp Countdown Child
     Theme URI:
     Description:  WPChimp Coundown Child Theme
     Author:       John Doe
     Author URI:
     Template:     wpchimp-countdown
     Version:      1.0.0
     Tags:         responsive-layout, custom-menu, custom-colors, translation-ready, theme-options, editor-style, right-sidebar, threaded-comments
     Text Domain:  wpchimp-countdown-child
    @import url("../wpchimp-countdown/style.css");
    /* =Theme customization starts here
    -------------------------------------------------------------- */
    .headline {
    	color: red;

    This example will make the headline text red.

    Hope it works out, if not please reply to this message.

    Best regards,
    WPChimp Support

    Florin, thank you. My mistake…I missed out

    Template: wpchimp-countdown

    in the commented text before the import. Apologies

    Many thanks
