Header wrong in child theme

    Hi, thanks for the amazing theme. I created a child theme and it all looks ok apart from the header, which has been replaced with the default image. Do I just upload the header again via WP backend, or change it in the child theme? Sorry if this is a dumb question

    WordPress treats your child theme as a new theme. So, you’ve to upload your header image once again.

    Prasanna, thank you for your reply. Could I also ask, does the Custom CSS styles in Graphene Options, act the same as the child theme?

    It simi-does

    The purpose of a child theme is to do nondestructive editing, and the Custom CSS is nondestructive. How it is not a child theme

    See here for one of the differences between a child theme and the Custom CSS feature:

    On top of that, there is far more customisations you can do with a child theme, and not just CSS customisations.

    Hi again, on the subject of the child theme if I wanted to add some stuff just below the body, which file would I need to create and change? So sorry I am clueless at this stuff.

    Don’t edit theme files. Just use an action hook widget area instead:
