I’m a non-techie finding my way around GeneratePress for the first time and wondered if there were intro guides or videos (apart from those on youtube of course).
I’ve trawled through much of the documentation but it seems to be geared to troubleshooting/specific concerns, but I just need an introductory explanation of the different functions (troubleshooting will probably come later 🙂 ). Does that exist?
I am also using Beaver Builder but wanted to understand what GeneratePress itself can do before I rely on Beaver Builder for everything off-the-shelf.

The documentation is not just for trouble shooting. It actually explains every feature that are included in the theme and plugin.
You can see them all in Overview pages like:
Users generally use page builders for content and leave the header, footer and navigation to GP itself.

Okay great thanks. I think as I started to read those guides they just seemed to assume you already knew your way around. I will persist, no doubt it is worth it!!
Thanks for validating that the page builder approach was the right one for content, with those structural elements you cited being handled by GP.

Just let us know if you are unclear about anything 🙂November 2, 2017 at 10:04 am #415092sarojini
I am actually confused about the difference between the page header and site header and how they interrelate with the home page header… If I were to use a Beaver Builder homepage template (and set this page as static front page), which part of it counts as page header and do I have to tell Generate Press not to show the page header for that page (the homepage)?
I’m probably not going to use a Beaver Builder homepage template but instead make a simpler/cleaner one (I guess using your Page Header function or maybe using Beaver Builder), but I’m just trying to understand the differences and how GeneratePress could tell which element of a homepage is the page header…
Thank you!!November 2, 2017 at 11:18 am #415145LeoStaffCustomer Support
Site header is a global element and page header can be per page basis.
There is no default page header so if you don’t assign one to that page, there shouldn’t be one.
Dave’s video here actually shows good examples of using page header: https://www.designbuildweb.co/generatepress-dynamic-page-headers/
