[SOLVED] Different headers for different categories using Unique Headers plugin

Hi

I'd like to have different headers for different post categories. I'm trying the 'Unqiue Headers' plugin (http://wordpress.org/plugins/unique-headers/). I've installed the plugin (plus the required Taxonomy Metadata one) and uploaded and selected new header images for each category, but it's not working. The main site banner (located in my atahualpa header images folder) is displayed as before.

Is this a compatibility issue with atahualpa or I am doing something wrong? Or is there a better way to get different headers? I'd be very grateful for any help, please.

I'm using atahualpa 3.7.15 with WP 3.9.1.

Best wishes
Kit

I would try adding a new widget area in place of %image and then use a plugin like Simple Image Widget plus a plugin like Dynamic Widgets to indicate what categories the image would display on.

Thank you for your reply. That looks like a neat method, but it seems to place the image in the sidebar. What I want to change is the header image (banner) across the top of the page. At present I have one header image for static pages (set in Atahualpa Options > Header Area > Header Image) and use the css code below to display a different header image on blog posts. Now I'd like to have different header images for different categories of post, while still keeping the old header image for the static pages. I thought the Unique Headers plugin would do that, but I may have misunderstood. Can you suggest a way of doing it, please?

body.blog div#imagecontainer {
background-image: url(/wp-content/ata-images/kf_blog_banner.jpg) !important;}
body.single-post div#imagecontainer {
background-image: url(/wp-content/ata-images/kf_blog_banner.jpg) !important;}
body.category div#imagecontainer {
background-image: url(/wp-content/ata-images/kf_blog_banner.jpg) !important;}

The purpose of the new widget area in place of %image in the header section of the theme options will put the image where the banner is.

Thanks! I didn't realize there was now a function to replace the header with a widget. That should be a neat solution. Sorry to be a pain, but can you tell me where to find documentation on how to set this up, please? Do I first need to create a new widget in the 'Add new WIDGET AREAS' panel?

All the information on how to add a new widget area is in the theme options.

Thanks. I've figured out how to do it and it does work. However, there's a drawback to this method, I think. None of the formatting set under Header Area > Header Image applies to header images positioned with widget. By contrast, my previous method for having a different blog banner (using the css code pasted in above) retained the formatting -- I assume since it still used the %image function. Is there a way of extending that method so that it applies to specific categories, rather than the whole blog? Thanks again for your time and apologies for my ineptitude!

Yes.. You will have to style with other CSS as opposed to the theme options.
