Bootstrap to Wordpress Child Theme


I am trying to generate a child theme and WP tells me that my parent theme is missing...

This is what I have in my Bootstrap to Wordpress child style.css:

/* Theme Name: Bootstrap to Wordpress Child Theme Description: A demo child theme for the Bootstrap to Wordpress Author: zgordon Version: 1.0 Template: Bootstrap to Wordpress


@import url('../bootstrap-to-wpp/style.css');

I can't understand why it's not working...

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

try Template: bootstrap-to-wpp This is what you wrote in the @import url so I guess that bootstrap-to-wpp is your parent tamplate name

Make sure you wrote the template name exactly the same as it is under wp-content/themes/
