i need advice in implementing rotating header (has fade or slide effect) in my theme. I'm building a theme based on Thematic and I'm looking for a good approach on how to implement the header. I have 2 option, I can use a Plug or I can inject the header in my functions.php. Help me decide on best way to do it.
The are Pros and Cons on its approach,
Plugin Pros: Easy to Install--no codes needed, client friendly-has an admin interface, Plugin Cons: not usually what you looking for.. sometime you you just work on what's available out there..
functions.php Pros -- You have full control of the design. functions Cons: no admin interface -- it would be hard for clients to update.
www[dot]haardtline[dot]de - (blind effect)
www[dot]sweetsinthecitychicago[dot]com - (fade effect )
www[dot]collaborative-coaching[dot]com - (sliding effect)
I'm looking for an approach where i can re-use it to other project. where I can just tweak the dimensions and effect. For the clients it's easy for them to maintain.
I apologize for confusion
The simplest question I could think is. How do you do it on your client? What is the best and well used approach...
Do you use a plugin? what plugin?
or code it? (in coding it, my one problem is the admin interface, I need my functions.php to generate an admin interface where user can easily upload images and set some settings.)
