    hi,

    i’ use graphene with child theme.

    the folder of header images from /wp-content/themes/graphene/images/headers

    also ready in wp-content/themes/graphene-child/images/headers

    i have set a custom logo in the dashboard.

    with the graphene update, they are changing to default.

    so i have copy and rename these manually.

    my other settings in style.css and function works very well.

    what can i do, to use the header image with the child theme and they no changed in the future by update the parent theme?

    i’m a newbie on wordpress and php, so you declare please for “dummies” 😉

    is it right, the code (some i don’t know) must in the functions.php of the child?

    many thanks in advance!

    If you change header image through Appearance –> header, your header image must have uploaded to wp-contents/uploads directory. Not to the parent theme’s headers folder.

    Please add a link to your site and give us your custom CSS and child theme’s functions.php code

    First i have uploaded the logoheader, i made this with header-options “choose your picture from your source

    The headerlogo has now been uploaded to

    http://swede67.org/demokratez/wp-content/uploads/logo_head.jpg

    but i have in the moment not set as new after the update to 1.62. the size should 980 x 130, thats correct.

    the logo-hader from graphene is changed automatic, but in the child the option is of.

    and the logo i have uploaded first is checked in the options.

    Thx for your work.

    I have now upload the headerlogo new with dashboard, with size 960 x 130

    before, i have unchecked “put the uploads” into month-year-folder.

    but the dashboard goes to cropp this upload image, because the size is correct 960×130?!

    then i have upload the logo and rename it by hand to e.g. “cropped-logo”, also by preview 300×61, and 150×150 with this size.

    then i have unchecked “use custom headerpicture” in graphene options and also by “change not headerlogo with marked picture”

    now, it seems will be work. i hope so too, by next update.

    Sorry for my english

    and

    many thanks for your work!
