Recommended Posts

I have a problem creating a child theme for my Stationpro3 I followed the instructions on WP about how to create it but when I did load it on my site it says that I have to install the parent. So, if someone is kind enough to post the "style.css", I would be very grateful.

You can download the StationPro theme (assuming you have purchased it) from your account at https://www.pagelines.com/launchpad/member.php The file will be in there.

Simple _mama thanks for your time. If I understand you, you are saying the "style.css" in the main S-Pro (which I purchased) is the same as the one in the child theme, is just to copy and paste in the child theme folder. (sorry for the beginners question , my knowledge in this is very, very limited)

Have you followed the instructions here? The "Template " is required for the top of your child theme stylesheet. http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

Thanks, Kastelic yes, I did and now have a child theme. But the page layout is completely off, everything is just mixed up, the heading, Nav. is all in a mess. So, I dicided not to use it on my site until that is fixed.

Did you have this line as well to import the main stylesheet? [code] @import url("../stationpro/style.css"); [/code]

Thanks, Catrina I did as you said, but it did not change. Could it be because I am just seeing the preview of the child theme, I did not replace my original theme with it yet.

So you didn't activate the child theme yet? Yes... I would try doing that.

Hi Janko, make sure you are using the actual folder name for the @import part, as well as for the Template part. Sorry for the confusion, I was only meaning the previous line of code as an example. [code] /* Theme Name: Child Template: stationpro3_dev /* @import url("../stationpro3_dev/style.css"); [/code] Save this in your child theme directory (it must be called style.css) and then go to Appearance -> Themes and you should see your child theme which you will then need to activate.
