Change second level masterhead images

Recommended Posts

Hi Nick,

 

I would like to add different masterhead images to second level pages to match what that page is about. I thought I would be able to do that in each page options masterhead, but I now realise that this just creates a splash image, which does not suit my needs.

 

Is there anyway to change each pages masterhead in this theme?

An image is a applied as the masthead background. Can you change this on different pages? No not currently, but you can do it easily with CSS.

Thanks Nick, I have been trying to do this but must not have the CSS right - any clues. I have been trying to change the clone number in the .masthead section.  Sorry if this is outside of help given.

I recommend learning to use inspector to get the right classes to style. CSS is fairly simple.

Hi Nick, I have used this and tried a number of CSS and class options, but none worked. I always spend a good amount of time trying to resolve the issue myself before asking for help in the forum, this is normally a last result for me, and I very rarely do ask for help under my monthly subscription. I was just hoping you would confirm the correct CSS.

I really wish I could sit here and start picking it apart, to give you the correct code, so that you can style your site. However, i get asked this nearly every day, and there's just no way I can sit here for hours and help people design their sites. Inspector shows things very clearly as far as what selectors to choose and modify. Hint: each page has it's own page-id so I would use that to only apply an image to the background of the masthead on just the about page.

No problem, I appreciate this part pf the forum just you answering so hard work.   Solved it - I was getting thrown by the cloning code and trying to get it to change the clone section. Is working now I just gone back to the good old url option.

 

for others who may try to do the same; this worked for me:

 

#masthead {background-image:url('http://yoururlhere.jpg');}

      I need to override the settings in the Flyte form area. I downloaded ninja forms and even sprung for the style extension. But every time I try to change the color of the fields and text it defaults to that dark gray. How would I go about fixing that?

      The citi theme has several issues with ie8.  Most of them are fixed with by the IE compatibility script.  The one thing it breaks however is the font awesome icons.  The icons actually appear for a second or so when the page is loaded and then are replaced by what appear to be unicode strings like f09a.

      Hi,
      I can't figure out why my blog articles are showing up when I click on portfolio with the citi theme.
      I have tried adding the gallery id to the theme but it's not working. I'm probably missing something very basic.
      the website is: woffard.com
      I will be grateful for any advice.
