I’ve installed the parent theme on my site then went to install the sample theme and it says parent theme missing. How do I fix this I’ve reinstalled WordPress and reinstalled my parent and tried a different theme to the sample theme but nothing seems to work.September 18, 2013 at 7:15 am #63174
When you say Parent theme – are you meaning the Genesis Framework or some other parent theme?

Did you install it through the Dashboard or through FTP? If you installed it via FTP check to make sure that it’s not in a subfolder.

You’ve got something funky going on.
http://alliechynnadesigns.com/wp-content/themes/genesis/style.css should exist, but that gets redirected to the same URL but with a trailing slash, presumably because it can’t find it.
Disable ALL plugins (no exceptions). If it still happens, see if you have a .htaccess file in the root of your site, and if so, copy the contents into this thread.
Also, if you understand what I mean, check that the Genesis folder and files have read permissions (644 for files, 755 for directories): http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_File_Permissions
