Hi There
I followed all the steps in the “Creating Your Child Theme” Tutorial however i am not seeing the message on the homepage
‘If you see this…. Congratulations! The child theme is working:)’

I have also checked the page source and it is showing in
Line 53 skin/frontend/base/default/css/custom.css” media=”all” />
It does not state child theme and reading from the messages on the tutorial i should see child somewhere in line 53.

However when looking into the the ftp there is directory /app/design/frontend/ultimo/child/template/page/html
Any help would be appreciated

Kindest Regards
Haz

Good Afternoon Haz

In /app/design/frontend/ultimo/child/template/page/html is there a file called header.phtml? If not that is why the message isn’t displaying.

Hi Paul
Yes the .phtml file is still there in the folder but know message. I can only assume the child theme has not been applied to my site for some reason. Any help would be appreciated

Kindest Regards

Issue resolved, i uploaded the “app” and “skin” folders in the wrong directory. I deleted them and reuploaded into the public_html folder in the ftp and now can see the child theme has been applied. Wink
