Hello, I'm trying to add a custom header image for each of my sites pages on Pagelines Framework? What's the easiest path to accomplish this, please?

Hi You can use different feature in each page. 1. Login to your Wordpress Admin Dashboard > PageLines > Drag & Drop 2. Select the "Header Template", then drag and drop the "Features" in to the header and position it above every other section you have in the template. 3. Then add New Features with different "Features Sets" 4. Finally set up Features in "Pagelines Meta Settings" for each page as you like

This isn't an easy task as no frameworks or themes are intended to have custom page headers. The purpose of the header throughout the industry is to maintain consistent content, such as menus, branding (logo) etc. There may be plugins, and you can always go the route of replacing all the elements of your header with the Universal Sidebar and then using Widget Logic and a text widget to place both specific backgrounds per page (you have to create a class for each page) and your header resources (branding, menu, etc.) Try this plugin:

Don't underestimate Batman's suggestion as it's a perfectly valid option. The plugin is probably your best, followed by Batman's then the manual method.

Hi mrwebb310
I see with firebug that you have in your header the "branding"

You go
Pagelines > Drag & Drop > Header
And drag in the "Activate section" the Universal Sidebar like this

Yes, you cannot have any of the usual elements in the header if you're going to use the method I described. You will need this plugin:

which allows you to specify the pages on which a widget is to appear. Thank you Batman for that perfect analysis and screenshot.
