Updates cause lots of problems
By ,

I've been using this theme for years. Love the options menus and the flexibility and it is a very clean design. BUT...every time I update I have to reinstall the images for the header. It is really a waste of time when this function could be dealt with in the updating process to not reset the header.

Additionally, today, I updated to the latest version, knowing I was going to need to replace the images in the header. All of my widget areas disappeared! It was a nightmare (I had just spent two days redoing all of my sidebar widgets with new code). I got things back to working with backups, but this is ridiculous. And not one word from the developer as to what they are going to do about this reported problem. There have been many reports of the same issue with nothing being put forward as to a fix with a future update. So now i'm in a holding pattern until I either choose another theme or the developers get this updating fixed properly. I was a huge fan. Now I am totally disappointed. I'm tired of this theme wasting my time.

Out dated
By , for WP 4.1.2

My WP update to 4.1.2 crashed on Atahualpa 3.7.23
I had to fall back to a default WP theme and noticed how smooth the setup was.
At it initial release, Atahualpa was a great theme. Now it is out dated and there re so many theme available that are easier to setup and have great build in effects (like animated icons, google fonts, smooth scrolling etc)
Thank you Atahualpa, but it is time to say goodbye ....

Bug since 3.7.13 to get your header/footer images to show
By , for WP 3.9

I had to go digging in the Bytes for All forums from way back in 3.7.13 to find the bug workaround to get header images to show. Turns out you have to click on Edit Header area, and save (and again on Edit Footer) and then it works. Bug, they know about it, but didn't fix it. Here's a link to their "tip":
