    I have been using WEN Business Pro without any issue. I am now trying to create a Child theme but keep on seeing this error:
    Broken Themes

    The following themes are installed but incomplete.

    Name Description
    WEN Business Pro Child The parent theme is missing. Please install the “WEN Business Pro” parent theme.

    I have tried all the suggested online solutions and even installed a different theme and created a child theme successfully for that theme.

    Below the header of the style.css of the parent theme followed by the style.css header of the Child theme I am trying to create:

    Theme Name: WEN Business Pro
    Theme URI: https://catchthemes.com/themes/wen-business-pro/
    Author: WEN Themes
    Author URI: https://wenthemes.com/
    Description: WEN Themes proudly presents WEN Business Pro : a spacious , generous , Corporate theme that offers convenience to anyone setting up the theme. Simplicity and roomy sections, all well-knit to deliver an exceptionally personal, professional or private showcase. Powering the build, is the in-house responsive framework that offers features that suffice a lot of needs and that is convenient to operate upon as well. This time its a one-layout header, clean menu, slider, focused content, pretty effects, portfolio showcasing, testimonials, neat footer all following fully responsive patterns. The code / setup is easy to customize and extend by various hooks offered in the build – those that help any technical person add further extensions on the base of an awesome build. This is a theme that works toward simplicity in setup, ease in use.

    Hello June,

    We’d suggest you to try out WP Child Theme Generator to create a child theme of WEN Business Pro. We hope this shouldn’t be an issue.

    Let us know if you need any further assistance.

    Thanks

    Hi WEN solutions,

    I would have preferred creating a child theme according to WordPress Codex as it contains detailed information on how to edit the relevant files’ code.

    However, I have installed the WP Child Theme Generator and will try it out. Please send me instructions as to which files I should edit in order to customize code for the Child Theme.

    Thanks,
    June

    Hi WEN Solutions,

    I do not want to use a Child theme plugin.

    As per WordPress instructions in: https://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes, I successfully created a Child theme by creating a style.css file for the new WEN Business Pro Child directory. However, the enqueue functions.php file does not seem to be working, as it is not pulling the functions from the parent theme. Below is the functions.php code that I created as per the wordpress codex instructions.

    <?php
    function my_theme_enqueue_styles() {

    $parent_style = ‘wen-business-style’; // This is ‘wen-business-style’ for the WEN Business Pro Theme.

    wp_enqueue_style( $parent_style, get_template_directory_uri() . ‘/style.css’ );
    wp_enqueue_style( ‘child-style’,
    get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . ‘/style.css’,
    array( $parent_style ),
    wp_get_theme()->get(‘Version’)
    );
    }
    add_action( ‘wp_enqueue_scripts’, ‘my_theme_enqueue_styles’ );
    ?>

    Please advise why the above code is not working successfully.

    Thanks,
    June

    Hello @june,

    While we have inspected the code you have provided for the child theme, the code seems to be working correctly on our side.

    However, the issue seems to be with the use of quotes in the code snippet. We have fixed the issue in our test unit.

    Please try replacing the code snipped with the one below :

    <?php
    function wen_business_pro_child_theme_enqueue_styles() {
    
    $parent_style = 'wen-business-style'; // This is 'wen-business-style' for the WEN Business Pro Theme.
    
    wp_enqueue_style( $parent_style, get_template_directory_uri() . '/style.css' );
    wp_enqueue_style( 'child-style',
    get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/style.css',
    array( $parent_style ),
    wp_get_theme()->get('Version')
    );
    }
    add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'wen_business_pro_child_theme_enqueue_styles' );

    This should work for the child theme’s functions.php file to load the parent functions and styles correctly.

    If the issue is not resolved, please explain the “missing functions” that you are referring to further so that we can check the issue and provide some precise fix.

    It would also help us visualize the issue further if you could provide us your Website URL explaining the issues.

    Hope this Helps,

    Best Regards !!

    Hi WEN solutions,

    I have tried amending the code as suggested but I am still not seeing the full customization options when trying to use the Child theme, compared to the Parent theme.

    To illustrate:
    Below the customizations options when the parent theme is activated:
    Customization options of WEN Business Pro parent theme

    Below the customization options when the child theme is activated:
    Customization options of WEN Business Pro child theme

    I’d appreciate a solution for this problem.

    Thanks,
    June

    Hello june,

    While we have created and tested the child theme for WEN Business Pro, the child theme seems to be working fine with all the customizer settings from the parent theme.

    To help you with the issue further, we have created the working child theme zip package in the link here :
    https://we.tl/xzAvZNEz06

    You can download and use the child theme to resolve the issue. Please install the child theme and check if the issue is resolved.

    Hope this Helps,

    Best Regards !!
