I'm working on moving a previously modified WordPress theme to a child theme for ease of future updating. The site can be see at http://www.simplysomething.co.za. I'd like my child theme to replace an image in the existing parent theme.
I've created a new image, strip-bg.png with the same filename, size, dimensions as the original in the parent theme, created an /images folder in my child theme (same name and place as in the parent theme) and put my new strip-bg.png into this directory.
I'm hoping this is all I have to do, since this seems the kind of elegance child themes promise ... but it doesn't seem to be showing up. SO ... is simply creating a replacement image sufficient, or do I also have to update the CSS or PHP somewhere in my child theme to point to the child theme's image?
