- 1 Banner Image File Naming
- 2 Uploading the images.
- 3 Rotating Header Files and Logo Examples
Atahualpa is a very powerful theme with a lot of features. One of the things you can do with this theme is set a custom logo and/or have rotating banners.
Banner Image File Naming
If you had banner image files that you want in the banner there is a specific naming convention they need to have. The header images files HAVE to be have “header_” in the name somewhere. For example. Before you upload bobscat.jpg to your site, you need to rename it to header_bobcat.jpg or header_1.jpg. Just as long as it has “header_” in there somewhere. The old atahualpa_header_1.jpg format works well.
The logo (above the banner usually) does not need a special naming convention.
Uploading the images.
If you want to have rotating banner images and/or a logo they need to be uploaded all at the same time. That way they will have the same /files/year/month/ in the file URL. This is used by Atahualpa to find the header files now. Look at your files and see if they have the same /files/year/month/ URL in them. You can do this by inspecting the media file. If they are different just upload them all again.
Rotating Header Files and Logo Examples
You will want to get the URL of the media files you uploaded above and insert them into the location below based on the 6 scenarios below. Take a look at the scenarios and then copy either the full URL of the banner, the /year/date/ of the banner, or just the name of the banner based off of what you want to happen.
Insert your scenario from below into:
Atahualpa Theme Options >>
Style & edit HEADER AREA >>
Show Logo Image?
1) Custom Headers and Custom Logo
In this case we have uploaded both a custom logo and one or more custom headers in the same folder.
From the Upload page we copied this…
The part in blue tells the theme where to find the header files.
2) Custom Headers and DEFAULT Logo
In this case we want to use our custom headers but the default logo, logo.png
One of our upload headers was…
We use the part after the domain name and before the file name and add the default logo from the theme as shown in blue and brown above.
3) Custom Headers and NO Logo
In this case we want to use one or more custom headers, but we want NO logo at all. Like in step two…
One of our upload headers was…
We use the part after the domain name and before the file name as shown in blue above.
4) DEFAULT Headers and Custom Logo
In this case we plan to use the default headers from the theme, but we want to use a Custom Logo.
This step is identical to step one, except we add a tilde “~” to the beginning to tell the theme to use the default headers instead.
5) DEFAULT Headers and DEFAULT Logo
In this case we want to use the default headers and the default logo, just put in the default filename, logo.png
This is the standard startup for Atahualpa when it is first loaded.
6) DEFAULT Headers and NO Logo
In this case we just want to configure our site to get rid of the default logo, and to use the default headers. Just delete everything in the box and leave it blank.
