today I ran the update for Catch Box…and my child theme edits aren’t working any more. Any thoughts on this? I have a content-page.php file, a footer.php file, a functions.php file (with no edits in it) and a style.css page. Those are my over-rides…my nav bar and front page CSS seems to have stopped working. What changed in the update to affect these things? Anyone know before I spend a bunch of time trying to debug the code? Darn…the whole purpose of a child theme is so that this doesn’t (isn’t supposed to) happen! Arrggghh!!!!June 10, 2013 at 12:28 am #10235

I guess it’s working in Chrome, but not in FF or IE…my color edits are missing for some reason.June 10, 2013 at 12:48 am #10238
when I load the page and view the source, it’s picking up the style.css from the parent theme, and not the child theme. What in the theme update would cause that?June 11, 2013 at 12:54 am #10307
@donnasander: First of all we don’t recommend you to change the footer credit link for Catch Box Free theme. So, please put back theme: Catch Box. If you want to edit that then do it from Catch Box Pro version. We provide free theme and support just for that.
We haven’t change anything much. Just a slider issue has been fixed. See the changelog at http://catchthemes.com/changelogs/catch-box-theme/
If you look at your child theme style.css there is so many thing that you are doing it in wrong way that id why you are having issues.
Importing parent theme style.css has to be as following
then you don’t need to add the entire css from Entire style.css from catch-box theme. You just have to add the extra css that you have added rest is handle by imports.June 11, 2013 at 1:30 am #10317
I know how a child theme works…you happened to look at it while I’m troubleshooting it. And I read the change log. It doesn’t say anything. I guess since your own website doesn’t work for crap in FF, I really shouldn’t expect your theme to be any different.June 11, 2013 at 12:15 pm #10335
