    So I https://docs.generatepress.com/article/add-entry-meta-to-pages/ , works a treat, yet need to reach out as the tricky custom meta layout David helped with seems to have broken layout/padding. It’s rendering outside the .header.entry-header div, so it’s breaking.

    Pls advise, coz I don’t know coz my eyes are melting out of my skull after my 5am start right now.

    Current CSS

    /* _meta */
    .entry-header .gp-icon {
        display: inline-block;
        font-size: 17px }
    .cat-links:before, .tags-links:before {
        display: none !important }
    .cat-links, .tags-links {
        font-size: 0 !important }
    .cat-links a, .tags-links a, .author-name {
        font-size: 16px;
        margin-right: 0.75em }
    .cat-links a:not(:first-of-type):before, .tags-links a:not(:first-of-type):before {
        content: ',';
        margin-right: 0.75em  }
    footer.entry-meta {display:none }

    Hey Morgan,

    Did you fix this? I’m not seeing any differences between the two examples.

    Let me know πŸ™‚


    There’s definite differences – note padding, and its happening coz of what I said above – it’s not inside the DIV it should be.

    Ah, pages don’t have a hook inside the <header> element, which is why it’s not inside of it.

    Try adding this CSS:

    .page .entry-meta {
        margin-top: 0;
        background: #fff;
        z-index: 9999;
        position: relative;
        top: -10px;

    EDIT: no, that breaks layout, that’s why I’m asking here – because CSS is dependent on meta being inside header.

    I tried wrangling it, thought I had it, but everything was broke various resolutions across archive, search and Pages πŸ˜› .

    Hoping you can now tell me what’s broken here : https://reel.marketing/unsdg/ , after doing the Meta, then turning off snippet, this header remains broken esp smaller screen sizes. Cannot grok what’s causing it, and .inside-article ... in this suddenly not showing in devtools:
    ‘@media (max-width: 769px) {
    .post-image-above-header .inside-article div.featured-image img { height: 330px }
    .inside-article .featured-image + .entry-header {
    width: 80%;
    padding: 6% 4% 4% 0}’
    Suddenly not working.

    Is there no way to get a hook inside header for pages?

    The only way to add it to the <header> element on pages is to copy the content-page.php file in the parent theme, and add it to your child theme.

    That way you could add your own hook and use it, as a default hook doesn’t exist there.

    Using a child theme: https://docs.generatepress.com/article/using-child-theme/

    Let me know if you need more help with that πŸ™‚


    In the interests of getting this site live asap, think I’ll leave it for people that know what they’re doing πŸ˜› .

    No plans to add a hook in header/reasons against?

    I think a page-specific hook in that area would be beneficial. I’ll log it as something to look at for GP 2.4 πŸ™‚


    Good stuff, I’ll stay posted πŸ™‚
