    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:

    View post on imgur.com

    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.

    Thanks,
    Bert

    Hi Bert,

    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 🙂

    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.

    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.

    Hi Leo,

    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,
    Bert

    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/

    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.

    Best regards,
    Bert
