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

Lightbulb Creating a Atahualpa 3 child theme for easy upgrade

I got interested in the concept of child theme (read this and this) and thought I could use child theme to make automatic updating of the theme easy.

The idea is to install Atahualpa3 within Wordpress (i.e. installed to /themes/atahualpa) so that automatic update can work. Then create a child theme (e.g. /themes/atahualpachild) so that I can throw my header image files, favicon, etc to the child theme directory. This way when the main theme is update, my header images are not removed and continue to work with the updated theme.

I got the child theme to work but it is still trying to pull the images (header and favicon) from /themes/atahualpa instead of /themes/atahualpachild although I have activated the child theme.

Anyone managed to get this to work or can point me to the right direction to get it working? Thanks.

Note: I also posted this on Wordpress.org here -> http://wordpress.org/support/topic/c...r-easy-upgrade
