    I duplicated the GP theme folder to a new folder called GP-Idylwood. I put this line at the top of the stylesheet.

     Theme Name:   Idylwood Custom
     Theme URI:    https://generatepress.com
     Description:  Custom Idylwood Child Theme
     Author:       Pixelita Designs
     Author URI:   https://pixelita.com
     Template:     generatepress
     Version:      1.0.0

    The functions.php file for the child theme is empty.

    And the child theme appears and I can make *some* modifications to it. However a lot of the functionality (typography, layout, menus, etc.) is gone. And GeneratePress settings no longer appear under the Appearance section. The plugin is present and activated.

    Also, on the site itself, the front end, there is the dread white screen of death.

    What did I do wrong?

    The reason for creating the child theme is because I am converting this site from Genesis Streamline Pro and there is a three-widget box on the home page which is using a featured page widget. I would prefer not to hard-code this as these items change periodically. I also want a different sidebar for pages than for posts. Is there some other way to achieve these two things?

    I found the blank child theme here:

    So I am off to play with that. Genesis better watch out. GP is giving them a run for their money. This will be the FOURTH Genesis to GP conversion I’ve undertaken!
