Original description for this part of the ticket:

Selective Refresh

A Customizer partial is registered by default and uses the_custom_header_markup() for the render callback, which allows both header images and videos to automatically support selective refresh. If a header image or video hasn't been set, we don't want to output empty markup on the front end, however, the container div needs to exist in the Customizer for selective refresh to work. Otherwise, setting an image or video will result in a full refresh.

the_custom_logo(), along with other features in core, output placeholders in the Customizer preview for the optimal experience, so making sure the container is always available in the preview isn't really breaking new ground. Themes can always use .wp-custom-header:empty { display: none;} to hide it if it causes styling issues in the preview.

Header Image Settings

It may also be worth changing the transport for the header_image and header_image_data settings to postMessage automatically when the the theme registers support for videos. Otherwise, it's kind of a weird experience when videos use selective refresh and images don't.

@bradyvercher following up your request for feedback on the previous ticket.

I think this is a no-brainer enhancement but whether it goes on the 4.7 milestone or in 4.8 is something I need to defer to the component maintainers and lead devs.

I see no forward compatibility concerns with either committing now or later. With RC1 next Wednesday, the patch would need to be in soon for it to have any chance for 4.7.

#2 @celloexpressions

If this isn't in 4.7 we won't be able to add selective refresh for headers at all, so we should do it now. And the first part of the fix here is definitely required - ensuring that the container is always present in the customize preview.

  • Keywords has-patch added; needs-patch removed

38737.diff adds selective refresh support for custom headers. It:

  • Ensures the container is always present in the Customizer.
  • Sets the transport for header_image and header_image_data to postMessage when support for video headers is registered.
  • Updates the default theme implementations.

The front page restrictions will need to be updated in #38738.

#5 @bradyvercher

38737.2.diff fixes the conditional at the bottom of the_custom_header_markup() to make sure a video isn't loaded on pages other than the front page in the Customizer preview.

The other benefit of showing the custom header element, even when there is no header image/video selected, is that the edit shortcut will appear.

#9 @westonruter

  • Keywords needs-testing added

@bradyvercher please review my additions to your patch:

  • Ensure that edit shortcut is not positioned off-screen in custom header.
  • Ensure that has-custom-header class is toggled on the body when the header image/video is changed.

#11 @bradyvercher

@westonruter The change for the edit shortcut looks good. The body class was taken care of in [39220], so that part isn't necessary, although the approach here looks a little more compact.

#12 @westonruter

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from reviewing to closed

In 39227:

Customize: Use selective refresh for custom header changes when possible.

  • Use postMessage transport for header image settings by default when video headers are supported, and thus the_custom_header_markup() will necessarily be used (and thus a selective refresh partial will be available).
  • Ensure that the_custom_header_markup() always outputs a container element in the customizer preview even if the header is empty.
  • Ensure that edit shortcut appearing for custom header does not get positioned off-screen.
