    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
    Template: weaver-xtreme
    Version: 1.0.0
    License: GNU General Public License V2 or later
    License URI: http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gp1-2.0.html
    Text Domain: weaver-xtreme-child

    That’s it. 

    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?

    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.
