I have 2 Blog pages. Each one is a different Category.
I want different Header Image for each Blog Page.
The default site image is showing on both Blog pages, NOT the Custom Background image that I have selected.
Note that current website does not show the Blogs, they are only on my local devel laptop.July 11, 2020 at 2:58 pm #1360410TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
So does the site you linked to not have these specific pages?
When you say “the default site image”, what do you mean exactly?
Have you created two separate Elements, one for each category?July 12, 2020 at 9:48 am #1361081LeoStaffCustomer SupportJuly 13, 2020 at 1:24 pm #1362422michael
Thanks for responding Tom & Leo.
I have copied all my devel laptop work to LIVE website, for you to checkout.
I have setup Element News Hero & Element Comments Hero (similar to what I did on all other Menu pages), but with these Blog “pages” the Background Image that I have Selected in Element-GUI is not showing. (as it does correctly for all my other Menu pages).
But here, with Menus = News & Comments using Categories, instead of pointing to my own HTML Pages, its not working & I am confused.
How do I create/reference any of MY formatting to create what you see below. I see nowhere to create custom classes or even HTML for Blogs ????

I dont expect you to walk me through all this, please just point me to the 1st steps in dealing with my Blog pages & GeneratePress/Wordpress. I want to try and use the GeneratePress GUIs as much as possible, to avoid reinventing the wheel.
This is the general look below that I am going for: 1)on the left is the News Blog Page (me talking to ALL),
2)on the right (anyone talking to ALL): I am using unique Header Element Hero images to represent each Category(News, Comments).
Then I am using unique images for each Sub-Category(Favorites, Under Construction, Suggestion, etc).

I’m currently working with News Page, there is content there… Can we just focus on News Page, for now… There is at least one News blog.July 14, 2020 at 2:43 pm #1363634LeoStaffCustomer SupportJuly 15, 2020 at 2:01 pm #1364894michael
The News Hero Element LOCATION=”Post, Post Category” SUB-LOCATION=”News”
This is part of what confuses me because I have never created a POST page Hero.
All my other Element Heros (that are working fine) are LOCATION=Page. SUB-PAGE=”actual html file ref”
All my other menu-pages (that are working) are actual HTML Pages that I created.
This is my 1st Blog page!!! How do I setup a Blog Page Hero (or however its done within GeneratePress) to create the target Blog page picture I sent you (You asked me to communicate with you via this Forum Replay page, instead of via email–I am unable to paste here on your website, an image of the final Blog Page I am wanting!!!)July 15, 2020 at 2:19 pm #1364900LeoStaffCustomer SupportJuly 23, 2020 at 5:07 pm #1374156michael
I changed both News & Comments Elements “Display Rules” to location “as you suggested above” & IT WORKED.
You said above “The News page is a category archive…” How did you know this, where can I find this info in the WP-Dashboard ????July 23, 2020 at 7:59 pm #1374248
