If you have a WordPress plugin in the official directory, you can now add some pizzaz to your listing with a custom header image. To add a custom header image to your plugin listing, you’ll need to have a 772 × 250 pixel jpeg or png checked in to your plugin’s SVN directory at assets/banner-772×250.(jpg|png). After a few refreshes, the image should appear for everyone. For some examples of the new header image at work, see Akismet, bbPress, BuddyPress, and Jetpack. This is still an experimental feature, so there is always a possibility that the dimensions, placement, and other aspects may change in the near future.

Twenty Twelve Theme on the Drawing Board

The new default theme for WordPress 3.4, appropriately named Twenty Twelve, is officially on the drawing board. This year’s theme will be overseen by none other than WordPress co-founder Matt Mullenweg. The focus is to develop a theme that is “kind of different from before, generally palatable, and that Matt likes.” Some new things to look forward to include a variable height header image, less “clever things that aren’t super-useful,” and this will be the first default WordPress theme to have no header image by default. For some odd reason, I have stuck to the default themes ever since Twenty Ten debuted, so I’m really looking forward to seeing what Twenty Twelve has in store for us.
