    Help with activating child-theme

    I'm trying to build a child theme for the mods I'm making to JobRoller so that I can update JR in future without having to redo all the changes I'm making. So far I've created a child theme called "jrchild" under the jobroller theme folder using cPanel.

    Following various threads in WP, Appthemes and JR I created a .css file in jrchild with the following content:

    /*
    Theme Name: jrchild
    Theme URI:
    Description: Child Theme for JobRoller theme
    Author: Me
    Author URI:
    Template: jobroller
    Version: 0.1
    */

    @import url("../jobroller/style.css");
    @import url("../jobroller/styles/style-pro-red.css");
    @import url("../jobroller/rtl.css");

    I added the style-pro-red so that I could see if the child theme works.

    However, I can't get the child theme to show up in the WP/Appearance/Themes menu so that I can't activate it. Can anyone help ?
