Support » Theme: Twenty Nineteen » Background/header image assuming blog style site

  • For a site with a static home page, I can set a featured image that appears at the top of the page overlaid with the site name/menu etc., and with the colour filter applied.

    For individual blog posts I can set a featured image that appears at the top of the post overlaid with the site name/menu etc.

    But if I were to make a site that was a traditional blog – reverse chronology posts – then I cannot see a way to set a featured image on the ‘homepage’ that sits at the top of the page overlaid with the site name etc.

    Is there a way built-in to TwentyNineteen that I am missing?

  • I would also like this tip. I wanted the homepage to be with my last posts (traditional blog) and that at the top of the page, superimposed on the menu / name of the site etc … I could define an image. Thank you very much in advance.

    How did you do what you did there?

    @dopderbeck (assuming you were directing your question to me)

    I didn’t get an answer here, so I changed the site to have a static page for the home page.

    Static pages and individual blog posts can all have a background header image – but a site with a standard blog layout appears not to be able to – unless I am missing something.

    Got it, thanks. Would you know how to change the appearance of the page title — particularly to get rid of that annoying line above it?

    @dopderbeck Try this:

    .site-header.featured-image .site-featured-image .entry-header .entry-title::before {
        background: none;
    	
    }
    
    .entry .entry-title::before {
    
        background: none;   
    }

    Brilliant! Thanks!

    Tagging @anevins to try to get an answer to my unresolved post at the start of this thread. Thanks

    I’m subscribed to the forum and I read every post, pinging me is not necessary and is kinda annoying because I get notified in multiple places. Don’t do that again please. Unless someone is directly participating in your thread, pinging them is misusing the system.

    Thus pinging me doesn’t make me know the answer.

    Thank you for telling me that you read every post.

    How was I supposed to know that unless you comment?

    Knowing whether someone has seen your thread isn’t a feature of the forum because it is useless. The objective of the forum is to help people, not to comfort them.

    If your question has not been answered:

    1. The quesiton is not trivial
    2. Nobody has enough spare time to answer
    3. (most unlikely) nobody has seen your thread

    Some threads are easy to answer, but the question you ask requires deep understanding of the theme.

    These are volunteer support forums and do not abuse the notification system. No one is supposed to come running when you ring a bell.
