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

Header images don't show? Read this ...

If your header images don't show check
  • if the file names have spaces or special characters (they should NOT)
  • if there's a space somewhere in the path to the image: /wp-content/themes/atahualpa 3/images/.... (there should be NOT)
  • if the file names end on .jpg, .gif or .png (they should)
  • if your graphics program added something like .LCK after the image name: myimage.gif.LCK (it should NOT)
Related to all images in CSS, not just header images:
  • use absolute paths when using background: url(image) somewhere in the theme options: background: url(/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/myimage.gif)
  • If your site is in a subdirectory /blog/ then use background: url(/blog/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/myimage.gif)

In version 3.3.3 a wrong Example path to images may be shown in the theme options. Something like


This should be




Both would work
