  • @import should not be used to import the parent stylesheet into the child theme. The correct method is to use wp_enqueue_style() to enqueue the parent stylesheet, using this code in your child theme's "functions.php":


    add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'enqueue_child_theme_styles', PHP_INT_MAX);
    function enqueue_child_theme_styles() {
    wp_enqueue_style( 'parent-style', get_template_directory_uri().'/style.css' );
    wp_enqueue_style( 'child-style', get_stylesheet_uri(), array('parent-style') );
    So I have to include This code to make that work ?
    I will try if not I will work just with the parent theme

  • Hi,
    I'm following this conversation. So how would I get the site to recognize my child theme's css? Specifically, STYLE-STATIC.css in my child theme. I'd like it to override the parent theme's style-static.css. 

    I tried adding that script to my child theme's function.php but that didn't work. Can you help me?

    Okay so do i have to put the static-css file content inside my child theme style.css file to avoid being overwritten in the next theme update ?  

    edit: that what i did and it works perfectly :-) maybe there's something you can add to the documentation ?

    @marksuarez, simply paste the content inside your child theme style.css and it will work.
