WP Dashboard sees my MintChild theme, but when I activate it via WP, my site looks hideous: almost completely unformatted (think internet circa 1997: lots of Times New Roman and bulleted lists, without a hint of Mint’s layout, fonts, or styling).
Clearly I’m missing something.
I pulled my child code directly from ThemeLoom’s Codex, and I’ve created a child theme folder [LivingOS_MintChild] at the same level as the Mint theme folder. Its onluy contents are style.css, below.
Hey, thanks. As it happens, I just found a plugin for creating new child themes on the fly via WP dashboard — and that worked. So far, the WP Editor is letting me adjust the child CSS without problems. Cheers.
