having trouble creating a child theme
I’ve inherited a project, taking over from another developer who built the site. previous guy did extensive customizations, so it’s been somewhat of a challenge reverse engineering how he built and modded the site/files.
I’m in the process of modifying the layout, and in the interest of future updates, i want to do it the right way. so i followed this tutorial for creating a child theme for using custom CSS. (http://codex.buddypress.org/theme-development/building-a-buddypress-child-theme/)
i’ve followed the tutorial exactly, but my mockup for the new homepage layout indicates something is not right. From what i can judge, it appears to me that there is another stylesheet being called by the current site that i have not incorporated into the child theme’s style.css. (i put in only the two in the tutorial).
here is the link to my mockup: http://bit.ly/dErmwJ
here is a link to the a pre-mockup where i only included an image file for the changes (as a preview to the client before going forth with writing any custom code): http://bit.ly/hDeWzi
(sorry didnt want to drop direct links to the site so it doesn’t come up in any search. i hope it is understandable).
so my question is, do you think i am correct in my assumption that there is another style.css that i am supposed to be importing into the child theme, that i missed? or do you think there is another explanation for why the child theme style is ‘off’? (notice the header area is out of whack, and you can see the links colors are different, (light blue instead of red) and the overall page width is much wider)
thanks in advance! i hope this is explained well enough, if there is any clarification needed, please let me know!
