There are many codes that pro designers and coders can add to your site theme to enable you to add custom header to your site. Moreover, most available premium WordPress themes give users an option to upload custom header image for entire site.
Add Custom Header for Each Post and Each Page Individually
One of the features that a lot of users want is the Custom Header for a single post or a page – something that WordPress greatly lacks. In this article, we will share with you the best free plugins which will let you have this feature by one click without modifying the core files as these plugins hooks in the existing WordPress API to unfold its functionality.
This plugin allows users to set a custom header on a per-post basis. It hooks into the WordPress custom-header theme feature and overwrites the values on single post views if the post has been given a custom header.
- This plugin creates a custom meta box on the edit post screen, so you can easily select your custom header image.
- You can also select whether to display your header text and its color if your theme supports that option.
- The options you choose will be shown on the single post page on the front end.
Unique Headers Plugin adds the ability to use unique custom header images on individual pages, posts or categories or tags.
- Adds a custom header image box to the post/page edit screen.
- You can upload a unique header image for your post, or use another image from your WordPress media library.
To use custom header functionality with categories or tags, you will also need to install Taxonomy Metadata Plugin.
With this plugin you can select a specific header or random header image for each content item or archive page. This plugin lets you specify a header image for each post, page, custom post type or archive page individually, from your default headers and custom headers.
- It adds a meta box in the post edit screens with the header selection and a setting field in the edit profile and each taxonomy edit screen.
- If no specific header is specified for a post it will fall back to the default selection.
- Your theme must support the core WordPress implementation of the Custom Headers theme feature.
- It’s usually better to upload a larger header image rather than a smaller header image.
