Child theme shows white screen

Hi, I am trying to create a child theme for OneEngine and everything seems to go ok until I look at the site and all I have is a blank white screen. I have done this a thousand times with other themes and have never actually experienced this before.

I have this in the style.css:

Theme Name: One Engine Child
Theme URI:
Description: One Engine
Author: One Engine
Author URI:
Template: oneengine
Version: 1.1.1
License: GNU General Public License v2 or later
License URI:
Text Domain:


And according to best practice I I create child functions.php file and add this:

function my_theme_enqueue_styles() {

$parent_style = ‘parent-style’; // This is ‘twentyfifteen-style’ for the Twenty Fifteen theme.

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 ),
add_action( ‘wp_enqueue_scripts’, ‘my_theme_enqueue_styles’ );

Everything is according to the WordPress Codex so I can’t figure out what is going wrong.
