    I succesfully created a Avada child theme in the past.

    In the WP Admin section: Themes, was showing both the Avada theme and the Avada-child theme.

    After updating WordPress to version 5.0 the Avada theme not showed in the WP Admin section Themes anymore.

    Only the Avada-child theme showed in that section.

    Screenshot 1

    Besides on the Admin Themes page bottom is displayed following note:

    Incomplete themes

    The following themes are installed, but incomplete.

    Name Description
    Avada Child The theme defines itself as its main theme. Check the Template header. Remove

    Next to this I tried to add some custom CSS to the style.css file of the Avada-child theme and this not work.

    When I put the same custom CSS to the style.css of the Avada theme then it works.


    Why is the Avada theme not showing on my WP Admin page: Themes anymore after WP update to 5.0?


    The Admin Themes page notice:

    Name Description
    Avada Child The theme defines itself as its main theme. Check the Template header.

    This is the current Template header:

     Theme Name:    Avada Child
     Theme URL:     https://avada.theme-fusion.com/
     Description:   Avada Child Theme
     Date:          19-11-2018

     Version:       1.0.0
     Tags:          instituut, preventie, gezondheid 
     Text Domain:   Avada-child

    How to solve this Template header issue?


    When I remove the Avada-child theme with the function to delete it on the Admin Themes page will this resolve in showing the Avada theme again ?


    Best regards,
