    I have read other threads but have still been unsuccessful in creating (admittedly retrospectively) a twenty twelve child theme – which includes a header image. The header image is not appearing. Any ideas?

    What have you actually done so far? Twenty Twelve does not have a header image by default, but you can put one in place at Dashboard > Appearance > Header. If you want to do more than that (such as with a custom header), we can help you get going with a Child Theme so you can customize at will.

    This doesn’t appear in the child theme.

    To make that code work, you need it to be in your own functions.php file inside your Child Theme folder, and you also need a properly-named header image inside an “images” folder inside your Child Theme folder.

    Hi c.devlin.

    I was having the same problem as you, having followed the same process.

    What I had omitted to do is insert ‘<?php’ on line one of the custom function.php file. Also, make sure you’ve replaced the “mytheme” text in both instances with the name of your theme.

    I meant to say …insert <?php
