@DizzyLizzy, how did you get on with the Ultimo Child Theme? Just wondering in case I should take the time to look at it myself this weekend.
Apologies for the delay in replying, I was on holiday.
I have had a look this morning and it is helpful although I am still not clear on where this is actually placed in the folder structure.
Hi Craig, so I had another go and I am very sure I have created everything correctly this time and placed the files in the correct place however when I deploy the static files I get an error, well lots of errors actually but ultimately this is the final error … pub/static/frontend/Infortis/holly/en_GB/css/print.css): failed to open stream: No such file or directory
When I check that directory css is missing but all other folders seem to be there. I have tried searching for the answer but no joy, any ideas what I am doing wrong?
Howdie, @DizzyLizzy. No need to apologise for not getting back to me. If you’d like to share your Child Theme with me, then I’ll check it out for you. I just need a hot minute to spin up a server and install Ultimo.
Edit: I’ve built a server ready to try and reproduce your issue, as soon as you’re able to share your
Thanks Craig, child theme hopefully here
So far I’ve:
- Installed your Child Theme
- Switched to the Child Theme
- Changed my store locale to
From this stage, I tried 2 methods to reproduce your issue…

It doesn’t appear I was able to reproduce your error. What steps did you take to reproduce it?
So I attempted to install the child theme again and managed it this time. I think I was failing to run the upgrade command after importing the files but it all works now. Thank you so much for your valuable help
Was going to offer you access to one of my sandbox servers (Vanilla install + Ultimo Child setup) if you were still struggling. Glad you nailed it Don’t be afraid to reach out if you get stuck again.
