I know this have been answer multiple times... I was looking through this coding.. http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes & Versioning @import of parent theme's style.css & How to enqueue style before style.css
This is my development site...http://hoho25974.staging-cloud.partnerconsole.net/
I had change the parent theme when I was developing in my localhost then i came across to creation of child theme. but after reading the above post.. I am quite confused on how to link the child theme and parent theme together.. and i am not sure which codes have to go where... then when i created the Tesseract child theme folder with its style.css and functions.php... i get this message from my theme section in wordpress.
The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template.
Name Description Tesseract Child The parent theme is missing. Please install the "tesseract" parent theme.
and i havent touched coding in 8 years.. and i am new to wordpress... if someone could please guide me in the right direction of where to put the coding to link up the child and parent themes together that would be much appreciated! thanks in advanced!
