    Like title says, bootstrap CSS is loading after the parent and child theme CSS files.

    I’m using the recommended function from to load the child theme:

    add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'event_star_child_enqueue_styles' );
    function event_star_child_enqueue_styles() {
        $parent_style = 'event-star-style';
        wp_enqueue_style( $parent_style, get_template_directory_uri() . '/style.css' );
        wp_enqueue_style( 'child-style',
            get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/style.css',
            array( $parent_style ),

    Do you have a solution please which adds bootstrap style, then the parent style, then finally the child theme style?

    Many thanks.

    There’s been no reply from premium support in 2 days. In the end I sorted this problem myself through research – by making bootstrap dependent on the parent theme:

    add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'bigint_enqueue_styles' );
    function bigint_enqueue_styles() {
        $parenthandle = 'event-star-style';
        $theme = wp_get_theme();
        wp_enqueue_style( $parenthandle, get_template_directory_uri() . '/style.css', 
        wp_enqueue_style( 'child-style', get_stylesheet_uri(),
            array( $parenthandle ),

    I noticed the free theme loads bootstrap CSS after the theme CSS too as soon as a child theme is added. Just one of the issues this causes is that Bootstrap creates a coloured menu item background on hover.

    Anyway, the solution above works. This topic can be closed.


    Dear Daniel,
    That’s good to know the problem has been solved.
    Best Regards!
