Can't See Changes in Child Theme

Any questions about styling and customising the layout, changing the number of columns, changing the number of sliding images and so on.

Can't See Changes in Child Theme

Postby GFY » Tue Feb 05, 2013 11:35 pm

So, I've done everything by the books. Read and viewed lots of tutorials but still nothing. Here's what I've done so far:

*I've activated my child theme (even switched to a different theme and then back again).
*Got rid of every other line except : @import url("../sliding-door/style.css"); I read that here-->(viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1880)
*deactivated all three of my plug-ins
*I'm aware the template is case sensitive
*when I visit my host and look up the "sliding door child"file, I can see the attempted change in style.css, but no changes are visible (for example: if I wanted to change the color of text from white to red).

What else could it be???!!!
Here's what I got:

Code: Select all
/*
Theme Name: sliding door child
Description: Child Theme for Sliding Door
Template: sliding-door
Version: 0.1
*/
@import url("../sliding-door/style.css");
@import url("../sliding-door/dark.css");
@import url("../sliding-door/light.css");
@import url("../sliding-door/imagemenu/imageMenu.css");

I guess I've never really stated my problem.
Why can't I see the changes I've made on my child theme when edited?

No idea.

Here's my child theme:

/*
Theme Name: Sliding Door Child
Theme URI: http://dubbo.org
Description: Child Theme for Sliding Door
Author: Wayne
Author URI: http://dubbo.org/
Template: sliding-door
Version: 0.1
*/

@import url("../sliding-door/style.css");
@import url("../sliding-door/imagemenu/imageMenu.css");
.entry-content #facebook_like {
height: 20px;
}

I copied and pasted your child theme code from above but still nothing.
I even tried the "One-Click Child Theme" plug-in just in case I was doing something wrong in my child theme making operation. I tested it (the plug-in) out on Twenty-Ten and it works fine. I can see changes I made in the editor but, when I switch back to try to do the same for Sliding Doors, nothing.
Would really like to use your theme, you've done such a great job but I don't see how I could being that I'd lose everything once updated.
Thanks for you help.
