Live Theme Previews / Customize Current Theme

Gone are the days of rushing to update your header, background, and the like as soon as you activate a new theme. You can now customize these options before activating a new theme. Also satisfy your curiosity and try on a fresh coat of paint — you can also use the live preview mode to customize your current theme. Look for the Customize link on the Themes screen.

Custom Headers

Flexible SizesYou can decide for yourself how tall or wide your custom header image should be. From now on, themes will provide a recommended image size for custom headers rather than a fixed requirement.

Choose from Media Library

Tired of re-uploading the same custom header image every time you check out a new theme? Now you can choose header images from your media library for easier customization.

You can now embed individual tweets in posts. It includes action links that allow readers to reply to, retweet, and favorite the tweet without leaving your site. Just paste a tweet URL on its own line.

This works with URLs from some other sites, too. Give it a try!
