Cimy Header Image Rotator and the Twenty Eleven theme

Here we are with the all new WordPress 3.2 and the Twenty Eleven theme. One difference being that the header images should now be 1000 X 288 pixels. Apart from that you can still insert your Cimy Header Image Rotator plug-in code into the header.php file as detailed for the Twenty Ten theme (with the proviso regarding child themes of course).

// Houston, we have a new header image!

echo get_the_post_thumbnail( $post->ID, 'post-thumbnail' );
 else : ?>

Insert your code here

<?php endif; // end check for featured image or standard header ?>

But it is probably time for a change so I am no longer using the Cimy Header Image Rotator plug-in…hence the lack of image rotation 😉

Update: The Header Image Slider plugin is now being tested.

  1. nice tutorial for beginner like me 😀 and i have a question, can i remove the header image? i mean completely the header script. Because i have try some gallery plugin, and like to replace that in header image placed.

  2. The Twenty Eleven theme provides a button in its settings to remove the image and just show the text heading. The header.php file does more than handle the header image so should not be deleted completely. You would normally add a script to show the gallery to the theme’s header such as described here…

    Some gallery plugins may configure this for you automatically.

  3. Can I suggest to visit It offers some 1000×288 pixel size headers, to customize default TwentyEleven theme. All images are mine and provided under a Creative Commons 3.0 License.
