I am very new to WordPress and was curios what a custom theme needs to be able to support custom headers? I have been searching the WordPress site looking for examples and I have had no luck, I am new to the code also and still trying to see how these sites are put together but What I am trying to accomplish, is a simple thing really.
I am using the current version of WordPress along with the current version of buddy press and my own theme as a child theme from buddy press’s default. What I would like to do is simply change the header, then I seen your plugin and thought it would be perfect for the site I am building, to be able to change the header for each post would be nice. Any insight I could get would be greatly appreciated.
why don’t you go ahead and check out the functions.php-files from the TwentyEleven and/or TwentyTen themes. There you can find a best practive implementation of the functionality with tons of comments. In TwentyEleven the header business starts around line 112.
