After running the Twenty Eleven WordPress theme for this blog for two years now, (which I still LOVE,) I JUST discovered something I didn’t realize it could do. Namely that it would let you randomly display from a selection of custom header images.
I remember at one point when I first started using this particular theme that the only thing I didn’t think it did which I wanted to do was random custom image headers. I was new to wordpress and programmed my own very crude routine to do just that. But I made my changes to the actual theme files (which is a wordpress no-no), meaning that when I updated the theme to a newer version I lost those changes. And now I’ve discovered that the theme easily supports just what I wanted it to do much more elegantly than what I had jury-rigged together. If I had only uploaded more than ONE header I would have discovered the option to not only select from one of those images, but to instead display a random image.
Below are the images I currently have randomly appearing on every page of this website (except for on those few posts or pages where I have chosen to have a specific header). I will definitely be adding more soon.

While zoomed you can click on the left or right side of the image to move to the previous or next image in the gallery. You can also click the “start” link on the upper right of the zoom screen to watch the gallery as a slide show.
