[Feature request] Custom header image plug-in

Post by Huhu » Fri Sep 07, 2018 12:55 pm

Hej!
I am very happy with Don Chamber's Clean Blog theme.
Clean Blog addresses an issue that is quite important to me: You can assign custom images to the header section. So I can build a "static" website using Clean Blog and assign fitting header images for each topic.
But when using another theme, this option is of course not present.

Now, it shouldn't be hard to make the feature available as a plug-in for every theme. It should work like "Extended properties for entries".

While I would be glad to help and support such a plug-in, I am not enough of a coder to be able to realize it.

Anyone capable and willing?

Hej!

I understand the wish, however I see a problem with this. The header area is very much dependant on the used template. I do not see a generic way to support this with a plugin, because it always depends on the used HTML layout of a template. So I think it would be better for each template to support the option instead...?!

Hej!
Ah okay, thank. I'd love to isolate DonChambers Clean Blog entry head chooser and implement it, but for now I am just too overwhelmed by all those file references/dependencies that it does seem to carry with it.
