Support » Themes and Templates » Theme development header image question

  • I’ve been developing a theme for a friend to use and I’d like to add in some theme options so they can make some alterations themselves.

    What I would like to do, but have become stuck on, is putting in an image option like the custom header image in twenty eleven but not in the header, if that makes sense.

    I’d like my friend to be able to change an image for the custom homepage template I’ve made for them in the back end. Easily enough I could just move the header image code down into my page but the back end ‘Header Options’ would confuse them.

    I’ve done some theme options before, but not where someone can upload and remember images they have used in the past.

    The home page may or may not have the same text on it at all times.

    What would be the best option for using images in a page like the header of twenty eleven? Or would I need to set up something using the ‘featured image’ section of the page in wordpress already?

    Any thoughts would be great,

    Thanks in advance,

  • The new customizer should be able to do exactly this but I didn’t get too deep into that yet. Maby somebody can shed some light on this 🙂
