Atahualpa 3.7.11 - how to save your header images across updates

NOTE: some users have reported that using the '../../' redirection triggers a security error eror on their hosts. This has been changed in 3.7.12

With the release of version 3.7.11 there is a new option in the 'Header Image' section of the theme options. This new option 'Header Images Directory' defines where your header images will be stored. It defaults to the themes 'images/header' folder.

You can point to a folder in your 'wp-content' folder by prefixing the folder name with some updirectory pointers. For example: say you add a folder to the 'wp-contents' folder called 'header-images'. to point to that folder you would enter '../../header-images' and you would now get your images from there.

The way it works is that each '../' moves you up a directory. you start in the 'atahualpa' folder so you are here:
HTML Code:
wp-root/wp-contents/themes/atahualpa
the first '../' moves you to the 'themes folder
HTML Code:
wp-root/wp-contents/themes
the second '../' moves you to the 'wp-content' folder
HTML Code:
wp-root/wp-contents
and now you can name a folder that is in the wp-content folder ie 'header-images' so you are at
HTML Code:
wp-root/wp-contents/header-images
and that is where the images will be grabbed from.

Since this is outside of the theme folder, an update of the theme code will not tougch your images and since the path to the folder is a theme option, it will remain across updates.

MULTISITE since each multisite has it's own set of tables, each site can point to a diferent folder, so you could have
../../site01-hdr-images
../../site02-hdr-images
../../site03-hdr-images
etc, etc
