Posting here, in the hopes that things have changed in 2.9 for what I need.
I'm trying to figure out the best way to allow a user to select an image from the wp gallery while in my theme's admin panel. Think having a button to click in order to select a logo for a theme's header.
It seems that every theme I find that allows a user to upload a logo, does not utilize the built in gallery, but rather relies upon a separate db table. Thus not allowing a user to search for prior uploaded logo pictures, not to mention creating separate unnecessary tables in my install.
Has anyone ever either seen a theme that utilizes the wp gallery browser/uploader within a theme admin?.... or any ideas how to call the gallery browse/upload function within a theme admin panel?
With the new folder structure of the wp gallery, it would be really nice to store custom logo's etc in the gallery itself.
