I want to create a Weaver Xtreme child theme so I can replace one of the PHP template files with a customized version. I started the usual way: in the wp-content/themes folder I created a new folder named weaver-xtreme-child, and in that folder created a style.css file with just the following:
Theme Name: Weaver Xtreme Child for Just Thinkofit
Theme URI: //weavertheme.com
Author: David R. Woolley
Author URI: http://thinkofit.com/drwool
License: GNU General Public License V2 or later
License URI: http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gp1-2.0.html
Text Domain: weaver-xtreme-child
It sort of works, except that when I activate or preview the child theme, the site header image is wrong (reverts to that mountain image that seems to be the built-in header image for Xtreme) and the main menubar is wrong – instead of showing the main menu as I’ve defined it, it just shows links to all of the pages that exist.
So obviously I’m missing something. Since it apparently doesn’t quite work to create a child theme for Xtreme the way you would create a child theme for any other theme, can you provide explicit instructions for how to do this with Xtreme?June 4, 2015 at 23:22 UTC #17849June 4, 2015 at 23:23 UTC - Views: 2 #22461WeaverKeymaster
This is a WordPress “feature”. When you change themes (including to a child theme), WordPress resets the header image and menu associations. The images used on the parent theme will still be there, as will the menu definitions, but you have to re-set them from the Admin menu.
