How to enqueue parent styling in child theme

  • SOLVED

I have a parent theme that has a style sheet here:

theme-name/assets/apps.css

I'm trying to create a child theme and enqueue app.css in the child theme.

Tried this:

<?php
/**
* child theme functions
*
* @package My Theme
*/

add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'enqueue_parent_styles' );
function enqueue_parent_styles() {
wp_enqueue_style( 'parent-style', get_template_directory_uri().'app.css' );
}


But, no luck.

function enqueue_parent_styles() {
wp_enqueue_style( 'parent-style', get_template_directory_uri().'/assets/app.css' );
}

Try this:

add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'enqueue_parent_styles' );

function enqueue_parent_styles() {

wp_enqueue_style( 'parent-style', get_theme_root_uri().'/theme-name/assets/app.css' );

}
