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.
When you say Parent theme – are you meaning the Genesis Framework or some other parent theme?
I mean genesis framework
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.
I installed it through the dashboard.
Can you provide a screenshot of your Themes page please.
Pic didn’t work before here’s a link to it http://alliechynna.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/Screen-Shot-2013-09-19-at-8.05.51-AM.png
Thanks will have a look
Just check and only have wp-content/themes/genesis/(load of files)
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
Thanks for the help just delete all theme’s and re installed them through my ftp and it seems to be working fine.
