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
Author URI: http://www.kriesi.at
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:
Why would I receive this error with the child theme and not the Choices parent?

The permissions in the Choices parent theme and the child theme folder and files I created are identical.July 20, 2012 at 6:33 am #83896
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:
You can adjust the 128M value.July 24, 2012 at 1:07 am #83897
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?
