I don’t what you are doing but things are very very easy.
When you create a child theme you need to make a style.css in child theme folder
in the header of style.css you need to have
Theme Name: Wp Estate Child
Theme URI: http://wpestatetheme.org/
Description:WP Estate Child theme
Author: Ana Maria – [email protected]
Text Domain: wpestate
Tags: white, one-column, two-columns,left-sidebar, right-sidebar, flexible-width, custom-menu, theme-options, translation-ready
the example is made for wpestate. Replace wpestate with wpresidence and it will work for wpresidence theme also.
this is how child themes are made – the style.css from child is appended to the original theme style.css
Second – if for some reason you want to include another css file then in child theme you need to create a functions.php that will also be appended to the original functions.php
in the functions.php you can use instructions like
wp_enqueue_style(‘wpestate_media’,get_template_directory_uri().’/css/my_media.css’, array(), ‘1.0’, ‘all’);
but with a small difference :
instead of get_template_directory_uri() use get_stylesheet_directory_uri() – see here why : http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_template_directory_uri
All the info i just posted here are available free on wordpress.com . Also i don;t want to be rude but i think you may need to study a little about how the child theme are working.
In the end – there is nothing hard coded or something similar- themeforest will not allow for such things. You just need to read the documentation and apply what is says in there.
