Hi Brad you can use the GP Page Headers – this will tell you moreMay 22, 2018 at 1:40 pm #582063bradborland
But this deals with the header image. What about a big featured image at the top of a front page? Or does this do that too?May 22, 2018 at 1:49 pm #582072DavidStaffCustomer Support
The Page Header sits below the site Header, and replaces the featured image.
Just don’t add an Image to the Page Header but select the Add Background Image in the Content pane, and it will use the featured image of the post you set the header on.May 22, 2018 at 1:56 pm #582081bradborland
Okay, I have to be humbly honest, I am confused.
Basically I wanted the big featured image (on my front page) to have a button or link so people can take advantage of an offer or something.
Sorry for my ignorance :/May 22, 2018 at 1:59 pm #582084bradborland
Or if I could somehow make the large featured image link to another page or something…May 22, 2018 at 2:10 pm #582094DavidStaffCustomer Support
OK not a problem. Lets take it a step at a time.
1. Add a Featured image to your front page.
2. Create a GP Page Header and name something appropriate.
3. Go to the content panel.
4. Add some content. Which can include HTML so a title some text and a button for example
<h1>My Title</h1> <p>Some text goes here</p> <a href="URL TO PAGE" class="button">My Call to Action text</a>
5. Select Add Padding
6. Select the Add Background Image
7. Set the Container to Full Width and leave the Inner Container as Contained
8. Add Top & Bottom Padding say 100px
Save it and then back to the front page, edit and look for the Layout meta > Page Headers and select your new page header.May 22, 2018 at 2:19 pm #582099bradborland
Man! Thanks so much!!!May 22, 2018 at 2:23 pm #582100bradborland
So the color of the button and font type are all taken from customize?May 22, 2018 at 2:29 pm #582101bradborland
I guess there’s no way to put in a menu on the featured image..? Maybe a menu widget?May 22, 2018 at 4:16 pm #582153DavidStaffCustomer Support
Yes the button class gets it styling from the customiser.
Menu Widget in their. You could use this plugin to create a widget shortcode for that.May 22, 2018 at 4:33 pm #582163bradborland

How does David’s method above work with the elements feature? I’m trying to overlay my site logo onto the featured image in the navigator theme (yes ive changed from dispatch now!)
Not having any luck with creating a new header element.March 31, 2020 at 4:11 am #1220563
