Flickr Header

Choose a Creative Commons photo from Flickr, crop it, and use it as your header. Attribution is added automatically!

  1. Install this plugin from the 'Plugins > Install' page in WordPress.
  2. Activate the plugin for your site.
  3. Update your header template to support Flickr Header...

To use it, simply add <?php flickr_header_html(); ?> in your header template to insert the header.

It is possible to use this plugin along-side custom-headers (so you can choose which you want to use at any time). Similarly to the custom-header in WP core, there is a functionto test whether a Flickr header image is selected:

Here is the recommended template code:

if ( get_flickr_header_url() ) {
} else {
  //Typical custom-header code:
  $header_image = get_header_image();
  if ( $header_image ) :
  // ...
