ATA 3.5.3 Different Behavior In Child Theme from Non-Child Theme

Hi everyone,

My client is running Atahualpa 3.5.3. I need to make changes to the header that require coding at the PHP level so I need to make a child theme. I made a child theme, but some essential behavior changes when the child theme is activated vs. having ATA 3.5.3 activated.

My child theme contains only style.css and no other files. The contents of style.css are:

Theme Name:     Roy's Theme
Description:    Roy's modifications to Atahualpa for [REDACTED -- Client's site]
Author:         Roy Huggins
Author URI:     [MY WEBSITE URL]
Template:       atahualpa353
Version:        1.0
@import url("../atahualpa353/style.css");
When the child theme is activated, the page menus in the header are not populated with the rMenu class names and IDs. I tracked the program flow to line 12 of bfa_header_config.php. The test "has_nav_menu('menu1')" is FALSE when the child theme is activated and TRUE when ATA 3.5.3 is the active theme.

Is Atahualpa 3.5.3 supposed to support child themes? I.e. is it expected that the child theme breaks or is this a compatibility bug? Is there something else I need to set up in my child theme in order to retain Atahualpa's configuration settings?

Thanks in advance!
