I am building a website using the Catalyst template.
The Appearance-Elements-Global Header Background (Featured image) is showing fine for all pages other than the Frontpage, but the Featured image selected for the Blog page is not showing, only the Fallback image is displayed.
Hello, I am still wondering why the Featured image didn´t work, in the meantime I solved my problem by creating a new Header Element just for the Blog page and replaced the Featured image for a Custom image. In the Global Header settings I added a new Exclusion for the Blog.
so WordPress uses Metaboxes for adding additional content to a page – this includes the Featured Image. But this only applies to a standard post type ( Page, Post or Custom Post Type ) where meta data can be stored.
The Blog ( your Posts page ) and other archives e.g categories are not a standard post type, they use a function to generate the output, so metabox content is not read.
