Twenty Eleven Header rotator (8 posts)

    With Twenty Eleven theme there's an option to display random header images. I was wondering if anyone knows how those images could be pulled from featured images in posts instead, and linked to the related post.

    Or add header images, and link those to selected posts.

    I searched for any info on this, even for Twenty Ten, but haven't found anything.

    This is something I'd definitely be interested in as well. Hopefully we'll get an answer here. :-)

    I'm also interested in this feature!

    At the same time, I'm looking to ask, in the meanwhile if anyone has any direct experience adding a custom function or hacking the header.php file to add jquery to the header.

    I played around with it a bit. If you design header images at the prescribed size and then attach them to your pages/posts as featured images, the "featured image" will override the header settings and display, which makes it possible to have a specific "featured image" in the header for each page/post.

    True, that's been a feature for a while, even in Twenty Ten. But that's different than what I was looking to do. I was trying to turn the header into a featured image slider sort of.

    A random image from any post that has a featured image would display on the homepage, sort of how the showcase template works. I know that can be modified to auto slide through images, maybe there's a way to add it to the header.

    I'm looking to do this on a twenty eleven child theme. I'll reportback if I find anything that works well.

    I've had success with this plugin:

    still in its infancy (no options panel) but it gets the job done nicely, using the header core feature, twenty eleven and nivo.
