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

I would appreciate advice with this issue. I have never seen so many setting pages in my life in any theme that I have ever worked with.

I am not an expert nor do I claim to be. I can however, work within style sheets and do basic edits in .php but I am afraid this theme is a little over my skill set!

So inlays the issue. Is there a plug-in that will help with my specifications? OR Is there a coding resolution that I can use for rotating header images via category?

After taking a look at the engine that runs this theme I am sure that I will have to edit the engine pages.

Thanks in advance for your responses.

You could try to edit functions/bfa_rotating_header_images.php

$files = "";
$imgpath = TEMPLATEPATH . '/images/header/';
$imgdir = get_bloginfo('template_directory') . '/images/header/';

$dh = opendir($imgpath);


$files = "";
if ( is_category('Category name')) {
$imgpath = TEMPLATEPATH . '/images/header/cat1/';
$imgdir = get_bloginfo('template_directory') . '/images/header/
} elseif ( is_category('Category name 2')) {
$imgpath = TEMPLATEPATH . '/images/header/cat2/';
$imgdir = get_bloginfo('template_directory') . '/images/header/
} elseif ( is_category('Category name 3')) {
$imgpath = TEMPLATEPATH . '/images/header/cat3/';
$imgdir = get_bloginfo('template_directory') . '/images/header/
} else { $imgpath = TEMPLATEPATH . '/images/header/';
$imgdir = get_bloginfo('template_directory') . '/images/header/';

$dh = opendir($imgpath);

If it doesn't work add

global $wp_query;

right after

function bfa_rotating_header_images() {

Thanks for the reply.

There doesn't seem to be a "functions/bfa_rotating_header_images.php" file

I took different variations of this code below and went into every .php file in the site and was unable to find anything that resembled this.

the rotating headers is part of the Atahualpa theme

there is some code in a post I wrote (see Atahualpa->Headers forum) I think it is a sticky. You could try using it as a basis for changing the header code
