    While I have built many WordPress sites, I am not a professional developer. I first built this site on MetaGlobal.com because the server running the site where I am hoping to end up was running very slow. So I used the MG site as a dev site . The server speed issue has been resolved and now I am trying to duplicate what I did on the MG site on the OxnardUnited.org site. However, I am not able to duplicate the condition I want on the OxnardUnited.org server.

    Both servers are running:
    The same version of WP and GP Premium and the GP Child Theme
    WordPress 4.8.1 running GeneratePress Child theme
    GeneratePressVersion: 1.3.48
    GP Premium – Version 1.4.1
    There is no CSS in the Additional CSS area of the Customizer
    As far as I can tell all the page and Customizer settings are the same for both sites

    THIS IS THE ISSUE:
    The Page Header area on the Edit Page for each of the sites is different!

    MetaGlobal.com
    https://screencast.com/t/IEXgvR3K

    OxnardUnited.org
    https://screencast.com/t/d9j66mJpPQb

    How can I get the Page Header on the OxnardUnited site to be the same as the Page Header of the MetaGlobal site? That is the question…or at least that is the difference I am seeing and thinking that this is the difference in how the sites display.

    Your assistance is much appreciated.

    GP Premium 1.4.1

    Hi Roy,

    The page header add-on was re-written in GP 1.4.

    In MetaGlobal.com, the meta box is there because it had existing content.

    If you want to add a page header in OxnardUnited.org, I recommend trying the new way that this short video introduced: https://generatepress.com/gp-premium-1-4/

    If you really don’t like the new method, you can revert back to the old meta box way using this filter:

    Let me know if you need more info 🙂

    Thanks, Leo, That was fast!

    I had been watching the video before and after you recommended it quite a few times now. I think I am getting it. Thanks.

    Is there a way to get an image to display in the header space without requiring “Content is required for the below settings to work.”? I really just want an image with the text I create in Photoshop and not an image with the required text.

    Thanks again!

    Absolutely. Just enter some HTML comment like this: <!--This is a comment.-->

    Dave also made a cool video if you are interested: https://www.designbuildweb.co/generatepress-dynamic-page-headers/

    Terrific Video – highly recommended – slows it down a bit with commentary on the features.
    Thanks again!
