[resolved] Twenty Eleven Header Pic from Media Lib? (5 posts)

    Using 3.2 rc2.

    I noticed when I have theme set to Twenty Eleven, and I upload a large-enough file to the media library, it creates a 1000x288 version. That's great! But when I go to Appearances->Header and try to select it... there's no way to select from existing media files, only a fresh upload. Is this an oversight that will be fixed by release?

    It's not really an oversight. The intent is that if you use one of those large images in a post or page, it'll automatically set the 1000x288 version of the image as the header for that post or page only.

    Uploadable header images have always been kept separate from the Media Library, so I don't expect this to change.

  3. Yep, since custom headers were introduced there's never been a way to selected previously uploaded headers.

    This is changed a bit in 3.2 -- when you upload a custom header through the custom header interface, it's always gone into the library, but then you couldn't switch back to it.

    Now though, you'll see a list of any custom headers you've uploaded (from the time you've updated to 3.2) on the custom header screen.

    @royalatl: The current behavior is to add new uploads via the header screen to the library and to the header collection. In a future version I would like to just have a 'choose from media library' option, but we are not there yet.
