header to display different image based on posting.

Post by periferral » Fri Aug 19, 2005 3:35 am

Hey guys,
This is a bit of a strange request. I am using the Joshua theme that has a header at the top of the page (like most themes). I have a background image that is related to my latest post. However, I when I click on an older blog, I would like the background to change to the image associated with that blog.
Is there a way to do this. Ideally I would like it to automatically change. I could rename the background image file to tb_<name of blog>.jpg so it automatically picks it up.
Any help is appreciated.

What exactly do you mean with "click on an older blog"? Serendipity only supports a single blog...?

Do you mean you want different header images depending on each entry? How would you specify which image is shown?

This is all possible, I just need more information. :)

Same request - essentially: Where is the image that appears at the very top of the Joshua theme? It is not in the /templates/img/ directory - as the banner image for Joshya is.

If the background_color in body is altered, that image is very distinctive and you can see what I'm referring to.

Found it ! - after two days. It's bodypg.png in the /templates/xxxx/img/ directory.

Now, I'll have to learn how a simple 'line' is expanded to a blown-up image as it appears in the Joshua theme.

Ernst
