Support » Themes and Templates » Twenty Ten – Featured images overriding Header image?

  • In looking through the functions.php, it seems like the page and post featured images should override the header images…

    // We'll be using post thumbnails for custom header images on posts and pages.
    	// We want them to be 940 pixels wide by 198 pixels tall (larger images will be auto-cropped to fit).
    	set_post_thumbnail_size( HEADER_IMAGE_WIDTH, HEADER_IMAGE_HEIGHT, true );

    Wghat do I need to do to make this happen? I have a featured image uploaded to my post and the standard header image is still showing up…

    any ideas?

  • The image need to be of the correct size, or greater, so if it is smaller than 940px wide it won’t replace the default header image.

    okay, so my image is larger than the 940 px..

    I have the image in the post and as the “featured image” for the post and still isnt showing up… any other ideas?

    check the header.php of twentyten

    around line 58 there is a comment like this:
    // Check if this is a post or page, if it has a thumbnail, and if it's a big one

    is that still there in your copy?


    // Check if this is a post or page, if it has a thumbnail, and if it's a big one
    	if (is_singular() && has_post_thumbnail($post->ID) && ( /* $src, $width, $height */ $image = wp_get_attachment_image_src(get_post_thumbnail_id($post->
    		ID), 'post-thumbnail')) && $image[1] >= HEADER_IMAGE_WIDTH):
    		// Houston, we have a new header image!
    		echo get_the_post_thumbnail($post->ID, 'post-thumbnail');
          <img src="<?php
    ?>" width="<?php
    ?>" height="<?php
    ?>" alt="" />

    Then it should work. Are you 100% sure you have a featured image set on the relevant page, and it is of the correct dimensions?

    in the backend it is showing in the featured image section and it is bigger than the space allotted….

    is the featured image different than the post thumbnail?

    Hmmm I just tested it and it is working for me. Strange.

    i did change the thumbnail defaults in functions.php to:

    // The height and width of your custom header. You can hook into the theme's own filters to change these values.
    	// Add a filter to twentyten_header_image_width and twentyten_header_image_height to change these values.
    	define( 'HEADER_IMAGE_WIDTH', apply_filters( 'twentyten_header_image_width', 879 ) );
    	define( 'HEADER_IMAGE_HEIGHT', apply_filters( 'twentyten_header_image_height', 250 ) );

    could that be causing it?

    No that should work ok. I just tested my copy and it works ok.

    perhaps you should download a fresh copy of twentyten(it’s in the theme directory) and try it without any alterations?

    well, I changed to twentyten (my custom theme is based on 2010… and still no go.

    the image of the dogs tongue is the featured image, as well as inserted into the post…I feel like I’m doing something wrong…..

    Hadn’t realised you were using multisite – however I’ve just checked and can say that on my test server it still works.

    Have you got any plugins installed that affect thumbnail images?

    i turned off all plugins that had anything to do with images, and still no….
