    I made a local backup of all the files and the database, then:

    On My Staging Site:
    By ftp I removed the old Enfold folder.
    By ftp I uploaded the new Enfold 4.5 folder.
    Then I verfied Enfold 4.5 with a valid Envato private token.

    My Problem:
    My Enfold Child theme that was working great, now shows up in Broken Themes on the Themes page.

    Can you please help? My private details are below. I want to test everything on the staging site before moving it to the live site.
    Thank you.

    Hi Victoria,

    The private details in my first message had the staging site login and password.

    Hi Victoria,

    All plugins are deactivated on the staging site with Enfold 4.5 as the parent.
    Please see the live site link in the private details so you know what how the live site running Enfold 4.4.1 with the Enfold Child looks.
    Thank you.

    Hi,
    Thank you for the logins, I was able to login to your WordPress, but not your FTP,
    When I try as FTP it times out with no connection, and when I try with SFTP it connects but fails to login.
    Please check the FTP info.

    Best regards,
    Mike

    Hi,
    I believe I found your problem, your parent theme is installed as /enfold/enfold/
    so the child theme is only looking in the first /enfold/ directory
    please fix your parent theme to be in the first directory.

    Best regards,
    Mike

    Hi MIke,

    Thank you for your help. Good catch.
    I moved all the parent theme files and folders from wp-content/themes/enfold/enfold to wp-content/themes/enfold.
    Then I deleted the folder wp-content/themes/enfold/enfold.
    Then I copied wp-content/themes/enfold/header.php to wp-content/themes/enfold-child.
    Then I copied wp-content/themes/enfold/includes/ helper-main-menu.php to wp-content/themes/enfold-child/includes.

    My Problems:
    Enfold is not showing as a theme in Appearance>Themes.
    Broken Themes lists Enfold Child “The theme defines itself as its parent theme. Please check the Template header.”
    Can you please help? My revised ftp private details are below. I want to test everything on the staging site before moving it to the live site.
    Thank you.

    Hi,
    Thanks for the FTP access, somehow the headings of the style.css got switched around, I corrected it for you and added the child theme image, you may need to clear your browser cache for the image to show.
    In your child theme css you had a error on line 143 that I commented out:

    media="screen"::selection {
    background-color: transparent;
    color: transparent;
    }

    please compare this to your live site to see if you can find the correct code, because this is not valid.

    media="screen"::selection

    Please check your site, it seems to look good.

    Best regards,
    Mike
