style.css is not working of wordpress child theme

I made a child theme of WP-ocean but its style.css is not working, before I made the child theme of twenty nineteen and its working with its all functionality but same functions I have added for WP-ocean but its style sheet is not loading so I am doing inline styling. Below is my Function code.


add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'my_theme_enqueue_styles' );
function my_theme_enqueue_styles() {
wp_enqueue_style( 'child-style', get_stylesheet_uri() );


function wpb_custom_new_menu() {
register_nav_menu('my-custom-menu',__( 'My Custom Menu' ));
add_action( 'init', 'wpb_custom_new_menu' );

function my_scripts() {

 wp_enqueue_script( 'boot1','', array( 'jquery' 
 ),'',true );
 'boot2','', array( 'jquery' 
),'',true );
wp_enqueue_script( 'boot3','', 
array( 'jquery' ),'',true );
add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'my_scripts' );

function arphabet_widgets_init() {

    'name' => 'My_Widgtet_Area',
    'id' => 'partner-slide',
    'before_widget' => '<div>',
    'after_widget' => '</div>',
    'before_title' => '<h2 class="rounded">',
    'after_title' => '</h2>',

add_action('widgets_init', 'arphabet_widgets_init');

function prefix_add_content ($content){

return $content;
add_filter ('the_content', 'prefix_add_content');

Here is the style.css

    body{ color: #ff8b00!important; }

    This is a style in your css file and not an inline style. Write your style in the HTML tag, then it is an inline style and has the highest priority.

    I'm not familiar with Wordpress, but in such a case you can assume that Wordpress first loads your stylesheet file, and then overwrites your own file with the style from "twenty nineteen"

    You can follow step:

    1, The first create function add style.css

    add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', 'my_theme_enqueue_styles');
    function my_theme_enqueue_styles() {
       wp_enqueue_style('child-style', get_theme_file_uri('/style.css'));

    2, In file style.css requirement

    Theme Name:     Theme Child Name
    Template:       Parent theme

    I tried with a different theme astral theme and added this function in my functions.php and my style.css start working

    add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'my_plugin_add_stylesheet' );
    function my_plugin_add_stylesheet() {
    wp_enqueue_style( 'my-style', get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/style.css', false, 
    '1.0', 'all' );
