Support » Plugin: Custom Header Images » Clarifying what this plug-on does

  • Hi. Thanks for creating this plug-in.

    Before I try other things to make it work as desired, I would like to double-check what this plug-in does when working properly.

    I would like to be able to change the title banner image at the top of a given page or post to something other than the site title determined by my theme.

    After installing the plug-in, I can get the image designated in the custom header window of the page or post to appear, but instead of replacing the header image it inserts the alternate image below the default header image and menu bar.

    Is that right what it’s supposed to do, or is it supposed to REPLACE the default header?

    Thanks much, Jan

    Hello

    this Plugin is intended for managing all your header images for all possible areas of your website.

    So basically, if you have a built-in header image functionality in your current theme which is not sufficient for your needs just kick it out and replace it by the functionality of this Plugin.

    But be careful, you may require some HTML / CSS / PHP knowledge, or you may break something in your theme.

    Does this answer your question?

    Sorry, I got a little sidetracked on my way back here, and may have missed notice of your reply.

    So that’s what I thought. Which means that the plug-in should replace the default header. That is not happening (it appears below the existing header instead).

    Any suggestions on how to make it work. I did contact the creator of our theme, but it also seems like there is some general requirement to have custom header function enabled somewhere.

    Thanks, Jan

    Hello Jan

    I think that you can achieve your goal quite easy, too.

    Just DELETE the pre-defined header image function of your theme in the PHP-Code (make a backup before doing this).

    Maybe you need some CSS / HTML to finalize styling, but there should be nothing impossible.
