    I’m trying to replace my site header and am running into a couple of issues.

    I want to take what is currently my page header and move it up to replace my site header using Elements. It’s not working as expected.

    I referred to:

    https://docs.generatepress.com/article/replacing-the-site-header/

    And

    https://docs.generatepress.com/article/hooks-element-overview/

    1. When I create a site header hook, the hook dropdown menu is empty (when I refresh it shortly shows “wp_hook” before disappearing) – chrome and firefox. Have refreshed site cache.

    However, the element still appears to work as I can type text and it shows up at the top of the page (see attached image) – but that leads me to my next issue…

    2. The text I type isn’t contained within and doesn’t replace the existing site header. Perhaps this is by design (in which case, I need more info).

    Ultimately, I simply want to type [shortcode] (or any text/HTML) and replace the existing header with it. When I type text, it simply shows up at the top of the page (as shown), but outside the site design.

    QUESTION:

    What is the text/html I need to type in order to have [shortcode] replace the existing header and conform to the rest of the site’s design?

    Replace site header

    Thank you.

    Hi there,

    1. This shouldn’t be happening. Can you try #1 here to eliminate any plugin conflicts first?
    https://docs.generatepress.com/article/debugging-tips/

    2. Can we solve the issue above first?

    Can you also clear then disable WP Fastest Cache? We do specifically request this when in the Create new topic check list.

    Thanks!

    I deactivated all plugins and reactivated them one by one until I found the plugin causing the Hook Dropdown menu to be empty:

    Post Grid by PickPlugins
    Version 2.0.32 | By PickPlugins

    I managed to place [smartslider] in place of the original header and adjusted the settings so it is centered and at the same width and the container below it.

    Originally, I was under the impression you could simply replace the existing header container with new content, but it appears you have to completely build a new one. Any text I wrote never fit within an existing container.

    In any case, I ended up with the effect I wanted for now. Thanks for your assistance.
