custom header image with child theme e.g. folder definition
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
Wow, fast support, thanks!
I have updated to 1.62 without changes now
Here Style css from Child: (Code removed by moderator)
Here the functions.php of child_: (Code removed by moderator)
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
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
many thanks for your work!
