I’ve managed the screw up something on the Showcase on one of the sites I’m working on. For comparison I’ve attached two files. If you look at the one titled wjs.jpg first, it will show you the area I’m talking about. The v.v.jpg shows where the insertion point for changing the image in the showcase should be. It’s missing. Also, the frame for the showcase shows up on every page instead of the front page. I don’t want that. In the meantime, for no good reason except just to see what would happen, I added a widget to the showcase area figuring I could easily remove it. Now I can’t remove it either. I can be so brilliant sometimes. (sigh) WJSBanner.jpg V.V.jpg
The one with the header image setting, is actually showing there when the WP Header feature is used. The other one where it’s missing means the WP header is not being used (no image). You can confirm this by going to Appearance >> Header
I know it’s not being used, that’s why I included the pictures to show you that. I want it to be used on the front page, and don’t want the showcase borders to show on all the other pages. Plus, I want to remove the widget like I mentioned on my original post.
Somethings odd somewhere… I may need to request access to your site admin. If I can, please email me (contact me) with the login details and I will take a look and see if there is a bug in my theme or if it’s something else.
Thanks for the login…. I noticed you had an empty widgetkit widget in the Showcase position, which is why you were seeing part of the showcase on every page…there was just the container of the widget. Once I removed that, then the default header image (from the theme) showed up on the front page but then I went to remove it from going to Appearance >> Header. So now, you have a collapsed showcase area to do with as you need.
First, you should not have to “live with it” or make sacrifices. But the good news is that nothing is broken or messed up.
The showcase is missing because there is nothing published to it. I just logged in and added a photo to the WP Header feature as a temporary showcase. You will also notice that the image now shows in the theme options on the Header Image tab.
