I decided I was ready to test my child theme on my server, so I set up a new subdomain, installed a fresh wordpress install and imported my content over. All was well with the 2010 theme, so I grabbed a copy of Thematic from the Dashboard install themes. That worked fine, however, when I uploaded my child theme and went to activate it I ran into problems.
I received some errors to do with php and headers can't be loaded. Sorry, I didn't take notes on those errors. It did lock me out of wordpress completely so I could not even log into dashboard. Since it was a test site I decided just to delete the install and start over. Again 2010 and Thematic work great, but my child theme is creating errors. This time I decided to "preview" before activating.
Here is the error I receive in the preview window:
Warning: fopen(/home1/krowchuk/public_html/test/blog/wp-content/themes/wicked2/style.css) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home1/krowchuk/public_html/test/blog/wp-includes/functions.php on line 4165 Warning: fread(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource in /home1/krowchuk/public_html/test/blog/wp-includes/functions.php on line 4168 Warning: fclose(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource in /home1/krowchuk/public_html/test/blog/wp-includes/functions.php on line 4171
So, I created a blank child theme thinking maybe there was something in my functions file causing this. I stripped out all of my added functions but still get the same error message. Next I stripped out my css changes (left in the bare necessities) and I still get the same error.
Anyone have any ideas?
