With the new Thesis 2.0 in action, there are lot of unanswered questions. One of the most basic features that everyone liked in Thesis 1.x is Header Image Uploader.
Adding a header image in Thesis 2.0 is not the same as it used to be. Not talking much, here are the steps for adding Header Image in Thesis 2.0
Adding Header Image in Thesis 2.0
First of all make sure that you have installed Thesis 2.0 correctly. Else, you will see a blank white page on your site.
Login to WordPress admin and go to Thesis Admin Options page.
Click the Skins tab and go to Skin Editor
Step 2 will lead you to brand new Thesis Skin Editor page and open Thesis Canvas in a pop-up window. Thesis canvas is simply a preview of how your site looks with all the changes you make in Thesis Skin Editor.
Click the Images tab in Skin Editor and click Add Image button.
After the image upload is complete, you will see it in the list of images on the same page. From there, simply copy the relative image path (highlighted in blue in the image below).
Now, click the CSS tab on top and then on the CSS page in Packages column, click on Header
After you click “Header” package a pop-up box will appear. In the box, click on Options tab. Now, click the small arrow that appears next to Background and you will see a blank field for Background Image. Paste the relative image path that we copied in Step 6 in this field. Finally, click Save button. This will save the changes you made to Header package.
Now you need to click Save and Compile CSS button so that the changes you made to Header package are carried to over to the CSS file.
There is no further step. Check out your site and you will see your header image in place! Just like I have an ugly header image on my test site here.
