WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Within wordpress 3.0 you have the ability to create a custom header image with a very slick built in cropping tool.

I found out that the code being utilized for this is located within wp-admin/custom-header.php.

What I am looking to do is including this same functionality within my own custom post type so that I can create many header images and rotate through them while also adding additional fields to each post.

Does anyone know how to do this?

Here is the code from the custom-header.php file.

Extend from the existing class and only change the parts you need to change to add your needed functionality: class MyHeader extends Custom_Image_Header{ .... } but I suppose this is only scratching the edge what you're really looking for. –  hakre Nov 19 '10 at 20:25
    
I essentially just want to add the ability to a custom post type page I created for the user to select/upload a file and crop that image based an a size defined within the functions.php file. I don't know if you have played with the header image feature but it's very cool and hooks into auto creating a post also within the media library which is exactly what I need. I would greatly appreciate if you could provide a solution to this painful problem. –  NetConstructor.com Nov 29 '10 at 18:39
    
Have you considered to open a ticket in wordpress trac about your feature request? –  hakre Feb 5 '11 at 17:20

If I understand you right, you're looking for custom header support for custom post types.

By default WordPress does not offer such a thing for custom post types. The features that are offered for CPTs are listed here: Arguments for register post type().

So this is not easily possible.
