Support » Alpha/Beta/RC » Twenty Eleven Header Pic from Media Lib?

  • Resolved royatl


    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 1000×288 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 1000×288 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.

    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.
