I installed the traveler latest theme successfully, after that trying install the childtheme but with error.
Why I cannot install the traveler childtheme? It show error message after install it show “style.css”.
After update loading finish it show this error message:
Unpacking the package…
Installing the theme…
The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.
Theme install failed
How to resolve this troubles?
A child theme is a theme that inherits the functionality and styling of another theme, called the parent theme. Child themes are the recommended way of modifying an existing theme.
The Child-name should be inherited from Parent-name. You should not re-name Parent theme when upload Child-theme, The child theme can’t find its parent. That is reason why your style.css is missing.
