    I followed the instructions in the Codex and in the previous thread at: http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/support-child-theme.

    I added this to the Choices-Child theme styles.css file and selected Choices-Child in Appearances > Themes.

    Theme Name: Choices Child Theme
    Description: A responsive Business and Portfolio Theme by Kriesi - Update notifications available on twitter and facebook:Follow me on twitter - Join the Facebook Group
    Version: 1.0
    Author: Kriesi
    Author URI: http://www.kriesi.at
    Template: choices

    I received this error (XXX masks my server path).

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 100663296 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 261900 bytes) in /home/XXX/public_html/wp-includes/cache.php on line 402

    I got this error both with and without a functions.php file and with and without an at-import:

    @import url('../choices-child/style.css');

    Why would I receive this error with the child theme and not the Choices parent?




    Did you check the permissions on your files and folders?




    The permissions in the Choices parent theme and the child theme folder and files I created are identical.


    It seems like you need to increase the allocated php memory. More details can be found here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php#Increasing_memory_allocated_to_PHP

    Basically you need to add following code to wp-config.php:

    define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '128M');

    You can adjust the 128M value.


    My host provided a 96MB memory limit, up from 64MB, and I still get the error:

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 100663296 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 261900 bytes) in /home/XXX/public_html/wp-includes/theme.php on line 33

    I’ve not seen this with any other theme with this hosting service, and I think 96MB is pretty good.

    So, I disabled BBPress, and all is good. If I am not using Forums, do I need to have BBPress activated?

    [JFC – so I can find this thread again]



    If you’re not going to use the Forums then no you do not have to have bbPress activated. If needed, just dismiss any notice you may receive in your Dashboard telling you about bbPress.
