I did this:
1) put just the showcase theme into the themes folder because I did not read the instructions
2) the theme was broken
3) read the instructions
4) also uploaded the child theme
5) got this error upon activating the theme a second time
5.1) Fatal error: Unsupported operand types in /home/mayyue/taoofyouth.com/wp-admin/themes.php on line 83
I'm running the latest WP, not WPMU.
Also, the site is at http://www.taoofyouth.atsis.com/ and is a pre-install waiting to be delivered at taoofyouth.com, so it's mirrored. Other themes are working fine, but is it: the mirror, my install procedure, or something else that is keeping the theme from displaying properly? I'll reupload just to see if that fixes things.
