I am trying to use a child theme to avoid images (header, logo, favicon) being over-written every time the theme is updated.
I created a folder 'atahualpa-child' in wp-content/themes and within that created style.css containing:
Theme Name: atahualpa-child
I then created an 'images' folder within 'atahualpa-child', and 'favicon' and 'header' folders within 'images'. I uploaded the header image to 'header', favicon to 'favicon' and logo to 'images'.
I activated the child theme and all appeared well.
However, when I updated Atahualpa the custom images were not displayed on the site.
I would like to use Atahualpa to provide a flexible Web site for a non-technical user, and its customizability seems to fit the bill other than the images being lost.
Many thanks in advance for any advice.
