In TwentyTen Theme, use of Post Thumbnail in Content Area instead of as Header Replacement
|Reported by:||mikeschinkel||Owned by:||iammattthomas|
I just spent 1/2 hour with an end user trying to figure out why the site got all whacked out when a post thumbnail was assigned using the Twenty Ten theme. She was very confused because it appeared to her that the header disappeared and the thumbnail was forced up to the top left corner. After diving into the code I realized it was by design!
Please reconsider this. I'm pretty sure most people (myself included) would think the post thumbnail would show up in the content area, not in the header. Not doing so simply leads to confusion, especially for less skilled users and I think that is completely counter to WordPress' philosophy and definitely something those of us who deal with end users will have to repeatedly make excuses for WordPress doing (i.e. like my end user who said to me "Why the heck would it do that?!?! That's brain-dead!!'')
And if for some strange reason someone is in love with this behavior please make it an option in theme settings, and make replacing the header not the default option.
(BTW, my end user is working with me to enter data on a site of my own where I'm using WP3.0 and TwentyTen, this is not a client project.)
