Allow a background colour to be set for custom headers

Currently WordPress allows you to set a custom image background for the header and a custom text color but doesn't give the users a way to set a custom background color for the header.

Adding a simple color picker for the header background would give users a lot more flexibility in what they can do with the header without using external software to create graphics etc. Perhaps needs a way to activate it from the themes functions.php (suggest add_custom_header_color?)

  • Version changed from 3.3 to 2.1

Can you list any use cases? The only one I can imagine being useful is a single colored header, which also could be done with a simple image...

A user shouldn't have to upload a solid color graphic to use as the background for a custom header.

While the custom header background color can be set in the theme's stylesheet, it would be nice if users had the option of setting the background color on the custom header page for use with transparent image logos.
