I am trying to modify a theme by its child theme. The author already create a child theme.

I add many thing in the stylesheet, but it's not working. When I check in Developer mode. I see the link rel for stylesheet is https://.../style.css?ver=494

and style.css?ver=494 is empty

I think the functions.php that author made has some problem so I attach the functions.php (child theme) here:

// Exit if accessed directly
if ( !defined( 'ABSPATH' ) ) exit;

// AUTO GENERATED - Do not modify or remove comment markers above or below:

if ( !function_exists( 'chld_thm_cfg_parent_css' ) ):
    function chld_thm_cfg_parent_css() {
        wp_enqueue_style( 'chld_thm_cfg_parent', trailingslashit( get_template_directory_uri() ) . 'style.css', array( 'bootstrap','animate-css','carousel-css','fancybox-css','webkit-css','font-awesome-css' ) );
add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'chld_thm_cfg_parent_css', 10 );


I also attached the style.css (child theme) hereunder:

In the event a child theme is being used, this function will return the child's theme directory URI. Use get_template_directory_uri() to avoid being overridden by a child theme.

use : get_stylesheet_directory_uri()

Example code Here

function my_theme_enqueue_styles() {

    $parent_style = 'parent-style'; // This is 'twentyfifteen-style' for the Twenty Fifteen theme.

    wp_enqueue_style( $parent_style, get_template_directory_uri() . '/style.css' );
    wp_enqueue_style( 'child-style',
        get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/style.css',
        array( $parent_style ),
add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'my_theme_enqueue_styles' );

Simply use: get_stylesheet_directory_uri();

instead of get_template_directory_uri();


get_stylesheet_directory_uri(); function returns the URL to the current child theme, If a child theme is used. If you want to return the URL to the root/parent theme, use get_template_directory_uri(); instead. that's why it could solve the problem.

  • Please edit your answer, and add an explanation: why could that solve the problem? – fuxia Mar 6 '18 at 12:42
