Rotating Header

Description

Works similar to the WordPress 3.x header image but instead allows you to place in your theme a set of header images that rotate using
either a sliding effect or a crossfade effect.

Installation

To use this plugin you need to add a function in your theme and possibly add some additional CSS.
Here is an example of how we use it for many of our client websites.

Where #splash is a fallback to the built in WordPress theme “custom header” feature
The block of code we would either put into a custom home page template or wrap in a call to is_front_page.

Features

  • Easily configure home page graphics
  • Change dynamic graphic order via drag and drop
  • Change link text and add custom HTML
  • Upload and crop graphics using a fixed aspect ratio
