WP Header Images

Description

WP Header Images is a great plugin to implement custom header images for each page. You can set images easily and later can manage CSS from your theme.
WP Header Images is a WordPress plugin which helps you to choose a unique image for each menu page. Normally a menu item can be either page, post, category, product or even just a link. These menu items can be managed from WordPress Admin > Appearance > Menus.
WooCommerce categories can have unique header images by using this plugin. It was a difficult thing to manage different slideshow before, most of the times you have to be restricted for banner area for only home page. And that home banners cannot be used for all pages. By this plugin you can use unique header images for each WooCommerce category and product pages too.

Reviews

great plug-in, excellent support

Works perfectly for my site – exactly what I am looking for, being able to customize specific header images across all pages. Also, allows you to place the header above or below the navbar depending on where you place the code. The only issue I had involved Jetpack mobile view and Fahad couldn’t have done more to ensure everything was resolved. Works a charm.

Great Plugin

Thank you. This is a great plugin and your documentation is good. I was able to customize my headers with the instructions that were provided in very little time. I have been working with the twenty sixteen theme and had no problems.

This plug-in made my year!

Wow! Not only was this plug-in just what I have been looking for, I also got waaay more than I was expecting in customer service when I had a few problems getting it work. Fahad responded quickly to my request and shared his screen while he helped me to troubleshoot the problem. He even saw that I needed a contact form and assisted me with that! I don’t think there is any way on Earth I can beat that for a free plug-in. So far, WP Header Images is doing exactly what it says and I’m really happy that I chose this product! Thanks a million Fahad!

Awesome Plugin and an Awesome Developer!!!!!!

This plugin was exactly what I was looking and I can’t say enough how great the developer was to work with. I had trouble with the spacing after installing the plugin. Fahad was quick to respond. He updated the plugin and HE EVEN SCREEN SHARED WITH ME ON SKYPE (something that was totally unexpected) to make sure the problem was fixed since I was still having trouble after the update. Once on my site, he quickly fixed the problem (which was an error on my part… not with the plugin). I was blown away by his commitment to making sure the plugin worked as expected.

The developer is very helpful!

I was trying to have custom header image on the woocommerce page. Using the plug in and help from the developer, now the page has custom image. Thank you so much for your help! You are awesome.
