I have created a child theme of the evolve theme. The evolve theme was not edited before localy and was just downloaded from the offical site.

functions.php of child theme:

add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'my_theme_enqueue_styles' );
function my_theme_enqueue_styles() {
    wp_enqueue_style( 'parent-style', get_template_directory_uri() . '/style.css' );


style.css of child theme:

Theme Name:   evolve Child
Theme URI:    [http://example.com/parent-theme/]
Description:  evolve Child Theme
Author:       Michael
Author URI:   [http://deinedomain.at]
Template:     evolve
Version:      1.0.0
License:      GNU General Public License v2 or later
License URI:  http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-2.0.html
Tags:         evolve,child
Text Domain:  evolve -child

After activating the child the in the wordpress ui, the arrow of the navigation bar was crashed (please look screenshot):

broken navigation bar in child theme

navigation bar in standard theme

Can you tell me how this could occur and can I somehow fix this issue? I’m very new at wordpress, so I hope the informations in my questions are correct and complete. Please refer if you need more informations.

Thanks a lot!

  • hard to say without being able to look at the actual page. Can you share a link? – am_ Feb 19 at 19:21
  • in your browser, hit f12 to inspect the page, find the element and look at what CSS is effecting each – RiddleMeThis Feb 19 at 20:29
  • Thank you @RiddleMeThis for the idea to inspect the page. After adding the (exact same) code for the breadcrumb from the original style.css to the style.css of my child theme it worked. I wonder if this is the best solution, but I think it's a good workaround – michaelgr Feb 20 at 17:37
