    Hi Tom,

    How are you? I did a custom header image and text for my main blog page, and I see that the header I made for the individual posts page is on that page as well. So two headers.

    What am I missing, that would fix this?

    Thanks so much!

    Hi there,

    I’m not sure I’m seeing it. Are you talking about your background image in your header?

    Hi Tom,

    If you look at
    http://www.quietmothering.com

    It has a header at the top with the navigation bar beneath it. I made this header in Customize > Background images > Header.

    Beneath the navigation bar is the custom header I made to replace the default header. I made this custom header in Appearance > Blog page header.

    How do I make the main blog page have only the custom header?

    Thanks!

    So on the homepage there you’re wanting to remove the top header (above the navigation)?

    Yes, please.

    And also, just for my knowledge, is there a way to make the blog home page an actual page? Listed with all the other pages and able to have sections and whatnot?

    Right now I have the home page set to Latest Posts, but I would like more control than that.

    Thank you!

    To remove the top header on the blog, you can use this CSS:

    .blog .site-header {
        display: none;
    }

    The only way to display blog posts on a regular page would be to use a plugin like this: https://wordpress.org/plugins/display-posts-shortcode/

    Let me know if you need more info 🙂

    Thank you so much. I will try out both options. I appreciate your help.

    Hi Tom,

    Both those options work a treat, thanks very much.

    Do you know of any online tutorials that would help me with formatting/styling the output of the display posts plugin?

    I found their support page, with the different arguments- but what I mean is displaying in columns across the screen, or displaying one post larger than the subsequent posts, or changing the position of the title relative to the image and excerpt…

    Do you know of any guides for a css beginner (relatively beginner, not brand new)?

    Thanks for any leads!

    If you do a search for Codecademy they have an awesome CSS tutorial.

    That Display Posts plugin does require some CSS which is a shame.

    I plan on creating my own with pre-made layouts, just haven’t had a lot of time to finish it up.
