If you find this new option useful consider donating to myself (juggledad), Flynn the theme developer and lmilesw. New feature and support of this theme takes time. This new option took about 6 hours to design, code test and document. Donations are the only thing that will keep this theme and it's support continuing.

In 3.7.12 a change to the way you save images across updates has been implimented. This was first introduced in 3.7.11 but some sites reported errors due to host security implimentations.

In the new implimentation you will choose (1) to use the existing images folder in the 'atahualpa' folder, or a folder in the 'wp-content' folder and (2) if using the 'wp-content' folder, the name of the folder to use. You will also create a subfolder called 'header' that will contain your header images keeping them separate from your logo and favicon.

For example,
1) in the 'wp-content' folder, create a folder called 'ata-images' - give it a permission of 755
2) move your logo and/or favicon into it - give them permissions of 644
3) create a folder inside the 'ata-images' folder called 'header' give it a permission of 755
4) move your header images into this folder - give them permissions of 644
5) at ato->Image Locations(a new option)->Relative location of images? select 'wp-content'
5) at ato->Image Locations(a new option)->Images Directory? select 'ata-images'
you are all done.

I did everything you said and now my site is totally screwed. Actually, the only thing that wasn't working was my logo. Now, nothing is working. countrygarden.ceconn.com

when you created the new files, what permissions did you give them?
folders need 755 images should have 644

Thank you - that works a treat.

Having to manually replace images was the biggest 'small' pain I had

Thanks for the update. I followed these directions and successfully restored my background image & favicon, but am unable to restore my logo image in the header. It's pointing to the correct directory, but the image will not display... Any ideas? washingtonstatetrailscoalition.org

PS I just submitted a donation, thanks in advance.

Check the folder and file permissions
Check the spelling of the name

if you can't see the image by putting it's fully qualified url in the bowser address, then there is a spelling error, an error in the file name or a permission problem

Hi there,

This is Aida, I'm having the very same problem adter upgrading atahualpa. I've done all the steps you just mentioned. The image is perfectly visible on its own:

http://www.coachdelaprofesional.com/...er/Banner4.jpg

But I can't see the header on my website, and don't know what is wrong! Here is how the header area is configured:
<a href="http://www.coachdelaprofesional.com/"><img src="http://www.coachdelaprofesional.com/wp-content/ata-images/header/Banner4.jpg" width="100%" /></a> %pages

Thanks!!

OK, I had to contact my hosting company and they solved it all, including the header issue. Now I'd like to remove the footer credits but I'm scared I'll crack the site again!

The way I recommend to get over the fears of breaking a site is to set up a sandbox site where it doesn't matter if things get broken and play around. That is the way I have learned the most. I think a sandbox site is an absolute necessity especially for a newbie.

First, this is awesome and sorely needed, thanks for doing it. Two minor requests for this images upgrade:

1) For the "Relative location of images?" option, allow us to select the wordpress install top-level

(my images are in top level/images, and I can work around getting there by selecting wp_content and then ../images for my image directory, but not as elegant.)

2) Related somewhat, for the favicon, give us the option to set a different default directory for the favicon.ico. Maybe a quick button option would be useful to, to merely select favicon.ico if it exists at the top of the domain, as is the default were ATA not giving a different option.

thanks, Derek

@derekwbeck... Just curious as to why the locations as they now are aren't sufficient. Trying to add all possible options can be cumbersome and unnecessary.

Besides which, the wp-contents folder is where things that are not the WP-code base should go. It makes it easy to backup the one folder and get all your themes, plugins, media in one shot.

However if you are willing to fund the development of having the option based from the wp-root, it could be done.

Just to follow up, I had this same problem, probably for the same reason. I had previously implemented a workaround suggested on this board to prevent my images from being wiped on each upgrade, which involved setting a path in 'STYLE LOGO & HEADER AREA > SHOW LOGO IMAGE?' to the location of the logo file. This upgrade kept that field entry intact, so I figured it was still necessary. But it isn't: just delete the path entirely in that field, and keep only the logo file name.

Thanks for these instructions. Where do I find the wp-content folder? Also how do it "give it a permission" of 755 or 644. I have no idea whatsoever what this means. Please help.
