Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

[SOLVED] How do i get in the ftp file and change the header picture? Change font colo

I am setting up my new food blog using the Atahualpa theme and have a few questions:

1. I downloaded the FTP file in my plugins and activated it but still have no idea how to get into the file to change the rasberry tree picture to my own picture. In the left side of my admin page I see the following:

Atahualpa Theme Option

How do I get to the FTP file?

2. How do I change the grey color of the font of the header and post headings to a different color?

I went into the Atahuapa Themed Option, clicked on Style and Edit Header Area, and clicked on the grey box in Blog Title Color to choose another color B6B6B6 but when I saved it, it still default to the grey color 666666.

3. How do I get my header to center instead of lining up on the left side?

4. Can I move my page menu (Home, About, Recipes etc.) to the center on top or the bottom of the header (rasberry) picture so it is easier to see? It is too hard to find being in the left side upper corner.

I donated $20 and will be happy to donate more if you can help me set up my blog. You can view my blog at www.delicateflavors.com.

Thank you so much for your help.

It's me again. In the left side of my admin page, under Themes, I also have the Editor option which I can get into files like these:

Stylesheet (style.css)
Header (header.php)

Is this where I can change the codes?

The pictures I want to use for the header are currently in my computer. How do I upload them to the header?

OK. I found My FTP in the Setting and downloaded the pictures I want for the header. Now how do I replace the rasberry pictures with the pictures in MyFTP file?

Wordpress 3.4.1, Atahualpa 3.7.7
My FTP? Did you install an FTP plugin? Which web hosting company are you using? Did they install Wordpress for you? To use an FTP program, you need the login username and password for your hosting account, which will probably be different from your Wordpress login.

Your web host probably has some tutorials about how to manage your files. You can go and read more about how Wordpress works at wordpress.org. I'd suggest this if you're planning to manage your own site, because you'll need to understand the basics, and more.

Alternatively, you could hire somebody to either teach you, or do it for you. Our own Juggledad, forum moderator, is a whiz at all of this. I've hired him for a couple of things, and I couldn't be happier with his work.

To answer your main question, if you have an FTP plugin or program, and you can see the remote folder where the file should go, you should be able to drag it over. You also need to remove the existing image files from the /images/header folder, because Atahualpa just cycles through whatever it finds in that folder.

I'd advise against messing with any .php files via the Editor options, because you can do a lot of damage if you don't know what you're doing.
