Dear Tom, dear Leo,
since the last update I have a strange result on my page header in the editor.
Before the update my page header editor looked like this:
So I could edit the header and include videos.
Now the page header editor looks like this:
And I can do nothing to edit the header.
I urgently need to be able to edit the page header to include videos to postings.
Please help asap.

The Page Header add-on was re-written.
See the video here for a quick intro: https://docs.generatepress.com/article/page-header-overview/
You will now find a tab called Page headers in your Dashboard. The meta box in there are the same as before.
Let me know if you need more info 🙂August 9, 2017 at 11:19 pm #362767Bert
Thank you Leo.
I am using GP Premium now for less than a year (I guess since Nov.)
The video you showed me is older than a year, but I understood what you tried to explain.
The thing is, that until the last update (an hour ago) I was able to edit the header content directly in (below) the posting. Now I am not able to do this anymore, because I just can choose the header and thst’s it. Nothing happens. No edit possible…
Hope I made the problem clear now.
BTW: Is it possible to re-download the previous version of GP Premium so that I can continue to work?
Thanks a million Leo

Hmm that video shouldn’t be a year old. You might need to clear browser cache.
Or try this one here: https://generatepress.com/gp-premium-1-4/
If you go to your Dashboard, you will find a Page Headers tab now, in there you can create a new page header and apply it to your post. This is so it’s much easier to reuse the same page header on any pages.August 9, 2017 at 11:47 pm #362786Bert
Yep. It is 😉
However, as far as I understand now, the menue page header is for preconfiguered headers.
That’s why I never used it. I use the page header to include videos to postings which are – of course – always different.
If i would follow now the page header advice, I would have to edit a page header for let’s say videoxxxx and name the header videoxxxx and than go back to the posting and include that header to the posting.
That’s not what I was used to and I don’t want to start this ;-))
I was used that the editor appeard under the posting and I could edit the header exactly for the posting that I just created or that I am editing.
And that’s the feature what is lost now.
Unfortunatly I did not backup the previous theme and this change will probably be already included in the new download version.
So I am stuck now….
Thanks Leo.August 9, 2017 at 11:59 pm #362788Bert
I just found a workaround until the issue is solved.
Installed the plugin “Duplicate Posts” and now I can duplicate a older video post and edit it with new content.
Only new created posts have the missing header editor.
So this might help me for a while and also may help you and tom to find the error easier.
Take care and best regards,

The video is new – the old one was just replaced with the new video, so it says it’s a year old.
You can bring the old meta box back like this: https://docs.generatepress.com/article/generate_page_header_legacy_metabox/August 10, 2017 at 2:54 am #362910Bert
Thank you Tom.
Added the given code from you to the functions.php and everything is perfectly back as usual now.
Thanks Leo and Tom.
