WordPress Theme Development
Starting a WordPress Theme
Setting Up A WordPress Theme Folder
I'm trying to get my files on wordpress however when I upload them to wordpress it says I need a parent theme however I have no clue how to go about doing that
Are you creating a child theme or your own theme? Usually, when creating a child theme and I am missing the Template name is the stylesheet comment is when I get the error.
If you are getting the error with your own theme that you have created from scratch, this might help by adding it to the top of your style.css, it worked for me:
Theme Name: Treehouse Portfolio
Author URI: http://genesismurillo.com
Description: A post modern, simple, responsive portfolio theme designed in WordPress
License: GNU General Public License v2 or later
License URI: http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-2.0.html
Tags: black, white, light, one-column, two-columns
The code can also be found here and it has and example of template for a child theme: https://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes
And this is for theme development: https://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Development
