Creating a Atahualpa 3 child theme for easy upgrade

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.

Note: I also posted this on Wordpress.org here -> http://wordpress.org/support/topic/c...r-easy-upgrade

Have you looked at Easy Theme Upgrades?:

I can't tell if it only works for their themes or if it works for all themes but it makes it sound like it's using a similar idea to child themes but automating it. That being said, I don't really understand any of this, but am curious about using the plugin.

i took a look but i don't think it help in what i am trying to do. the additional thing the plugin does is to backup the existing theme before upgrading.

not what i am looking for. i am looking to update the theme without having to "reapply" my custom images again.

thanks for the idea anyway.

I'd like to add my vote to the question. It really is inconvenient if you are maintaining several sites to have to upload the favicons and header images after each update to Atahualpa.

Isn't there an "official" migration path that avoids this problem? Any suggestions?

The issue is that any 'theme' option has to be in the theme folder (WordPress requirement) I'm hoping to get the developer to put in an option to use the theme image folder, or another image folder.
