Thanks, Steve. Sure – each of the themes have (what is right now a widget area) used to display an image. So, of course, people who aren’t familiar with WordPress even have to learn enough to even know to go to Appearance/Widgets, and then to use the entire Widget interface, which is not hard we know… but if we could cut that out entirely, that would be better.
One example of how we’d like to use this is to give them a field to either (preferably) upload an image that would then display in that area, or paste in the img html in a text box which would then display it.
Or, allowing them to change the background colors of particular headings.
Thanks for the reply. I registered the settings page by copying and pasting the code in the tutorial, and then copied and pasted the full settings page for demo-settings.php and placed it in my theme folder under piklist/parts/settings/. I then copied and pasted the last paragraph at the bottom of the settings page tutorial into my single.php immediately prior to the loop (which at the time didn’t have that last echo statement in it).
I didn’t actually change anything in any of those pieces of code, just copied/pasted all of it.
Thanks – I was able to create the Settings panel and the demo fields for it, but I can’t get those fields to display in my template using the code in the last paragraph on this page: http://piklist.com/user-guide/tutorials/building-settings-pages/
I can see when I click “save changes,” that the changes to the fields in the Settings are being saved.
No matter what template I try to include it in, it doesn’t show.
I actually just found the last paragraph of that tutorial that mentions how to then get it into the theme as your email came through. That’s what I needed and didn’t see (thought clearly it’s there in the documentation!).
Thanks! I’ll keep playing with it tonight.
