I followed each and every single step you made, pausing the vid and making
sure the code and etc was exactly the same and when I activate child theme
the web site went completely black, everything, could only see the words of
the top menu, and that was it, and the powered by wordpress down the
bottom, what is going wrong with my version ? what could be the issue ? I
copied and created the entire footer.php as well in the child theme and to
see if I could make it say powered by me and have it linked to another web
site, which I did, but the entire site went black, any ideas what could
have caused that to happen ?

Hi I copied over your zipped files to twentyfourteenCHILD folder and
enabled child theme but it was all over the place. Do I need to do
something else. I followed the video closely.
