I got interested in the concept of child theme (read this and this) and thought I could use child theme to make automatic updating of the theme easy.
The idea is to install Atahualpa3 within Wordpress (i.e. installed to /themes/atahualpa) so that automatic update can work. Then create a child theme (e.g. /themes/atahualpachild) so that I can throw my header image files, favicon, etc to the child theme directory. This way when the main theme is update, my header images are not removed and continue to work with the updated theme.
I got the child theme to work but it is still trying to pull the images (header and favicon) from /themes/atahualpa instead of /themes/atahualpachild although I have activated the child theme.
Anyone managed to get this to work or can point me to the right direction to get it working? Thanks.
