in header settings, once you select or upload possible header to be rotated at random, it can not be removed from the possible choices of headers in the future.November 13th, 2014 at 14:18 #28208ZedCryout Creations mastermind
The Appearance > Header section is part of WordPress, not the theme.
You need to remove existing images from the Media Library to remove them from the header.November 13th, 2014 at 15:21 #28210Biologyben
Sorry I assumed this was a bug with your theme – I’m transitioning from an old theme that had it’s own image rotator built-in. I figured basic functionality would include a little red X next to each header image in the list. Now I search and I have found posts related to this problem all the way back to 2011 with this problem!
How about we turn this into a request! A simple plug-in that adds that X to remove the image from the header rotation without deleting it from the media center. I use the same images for multiple uses – especially annually occurring campaigns where the image might also be used on the slider, as a featured image/header on specific pages on for that campaign, other places on the web, etc and I would hate to break all those urls and have to re-link the header in multiple locations every time I want to pull an image from the rotation. All that is needed is to remove the association of using the image in the header – deleting should be unnecessary I would think.
