[resolved] User Interface to Add Images to Theme Templates (5 posts)

    Hi, hope someone can help. This may been covered but I have searched through the forums but have been unable to find an answer.

    I am doing a website for a client and being a WordPress fan decided to use it as the cms. Have used it on a few of my sites and other customers for this purpose so am pretty familiar if not an expert.

    A couple of the pages have images beneath the navigation and above the main information (the content) on the page. So these images will not be directly within the post area on the page when editing and currently these are hard coded into the page template. How can I make these editable through the dashboard for the end user to change.

    I feel as though I am missing the obvious here and there may be a plugin to do this for me but I am yet to find it. Is custom fields the way to go with this?

    Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

    @ theApe, I don't think this is what I am after as I need to be able to edit an image in the page template from in the dashboard. This would only allow me to add images with in the post or content section of the page.

    Can this be done do you think? Thanks

    I modified the plugin I mentioned slightly!

    So when an image was uploaded it would rename it and place it in the correct folder!

    The image in question was hard coded or placed in a widget with the correct file name and hey presto the end-user could change the image in the admin.

    I'm glad you found what you were after!
