How can the featured image be resized on all the pages when using the Catalyst theme? For example, the featured dimensions/size should be similar to the Peak theme (black/dark gray) background so that the logo appears above it as opposed to superimposed on it?August 20, 2019 at 11:36 am #989135LeoStaffCustomer Support
Have you tried the options in the customizer?
Let me know 🙂August 20, 2019 at 11:41 am #989137Anonymous
Yes, there doesn’t appear to be the ability to change it. A screenshot of the settings can be seen at https://imgur.com/a/9NIawlqAugust 20, 2019 at 11:43 am #989142LeoStaffCustomer Support
Are you referring to these on the home page?
Those are just static images inserted inside lightweight grid columns so the featured image controls won’t work.
Let me know if I’m missing something.August 20, 2019 at 11:49 am #989153Anonymous
No, I am referring to the featured/hero image – https://imgur.com/a/9NIawlqAugust 20, 2019 at 11:56 am #989156LeoStaffCustomer Support
That is a header element:
The size is controlled by padding:

Thanks Leo. Is there any reason when editing the home page post, there is the ability to change the featured image but not any of the other attributes?August 20, 2019 at 12:05 pm #989164LeoStaffCustomer SupportAugust 20, 2019 at 12:11 pm #989165Anonymous
The featured image option appears on the home page – https://imgur.com/a/wHbzDgb. It enables the ability to change the hero background image however none of the other attributes.August 20, 2019 at 12:21 pm #989174LeoStaffCustomer Support
Just imported Catalyst to have a closer look.
The home page header element is using the fallback image option:
Which means that if you choose to upload a featured image on home page, it will replace the fallback image.
When header element is used, the size is controlled by the header element padding settings as mentioned above.
Maybe you are just looking for a static featured image which can be controlled by the customizer? If so you can remove the Home Header element.August 20, 2019 at 10:59 pm #989377Anonymous
Thanks Leo. What are the differences between the featured image on the home and the fallback image? For example, why would one use one over the other?August 21, 2019 at 4:25 am #989541DavidStaffCustomer Support
if you have a header element that is set to display for eg. All Pages and to use the Featured Image as its background, the Fallback Image can be selected to display on pages that do not have a featured image.August 21, 2019 at 12:16 pm #990019Anonymous
To clarify, why would there be a need to select the fallback image if the featured image is configured under “Elements” and “Global Header”?August 30, 2019 at 9:50 pm #997618Anonymous
Would you be able to shed further light on the the need to select the fallback image if the featured image is configured under “Elements” and “Global Header”?August 31, 2019 at 5:14 am #997740DavidStaffCustomer Support
See this example header element:
It uses the featured image background. Let’s say i assign this to All Posts. Each of my posts will now display its featured image as the background. Which is great.
But, if one of my Authors creates a Post and omits the featured image then i am in trouble as the Header Element will still be displayed but with no background. Not going to look good with White Text on a White Background.
So this is where a Fallback images comes into play. By setting one it will display this image when my forgetful author doesn’t add a featured image.
