    I am using a widget to display a slider in my header. This header ONLY appears to the far right and will not center. I have tried various Additions CSS codes, and I have (of course) tried to center it in: customization/Layout/header/header alignment/ Center (Left,/right/center makes NO changes.)

    I have tried four different slider plugins and adjusted the setting in each of them to no avail. Even a simple IMAGE Widget has the same problem; it only displays far to the right and will not budge.

    If I create a page, and enable a header for that page from the dashboard, and then input the CSS for the header into that, then it works perfectly. BUT, I cannot do this on my homepage if my homepage is set to MOST RECENT POSTS; which I want it to be set to. The MOST RECENT POSTS page cannot be edited as a separate page from the dashboard.

    WHat do I do?!

    Sounds like you can use our Page Header add-on to insert the slider: https://docs.generatepress.com/article/page-header-overview/

    Then merge with the navigation: https://docs.generatepress.com/article/merging-the-page-header-site-header/

    Let me know if this helps.

    Leo! That was an easy fix. Thank you! But while I have you… Another question that I am sure you can settle just as easily. In adding image media to my posts… at first they would appear perfectly. And then, out of nowhere, and without knowingly changing anything. They are starting to appear VERY very tiny; barely big enough to see. On the dash board, editing the post, the photo/picture/image looks fine. But then on viewing it on the website it appears miniscule. What’s up with that??????

    Any chance you can link me to a sample page?

    http://themaynardmessenger.com/brendan/ and also just the bottom post on the Post’s page (home page/front page). The post page shows all the photos correctly except the last one – it is miniscule.

    Hmm I don’t actually see a page header on that page?

    Looks like that picture is inserted in the content?

    If this is not the case can you try #1 here? https://docs.generatepress.com/article/debugging-tips/

    That’s it! The picture in the content…. It appears miniscule. That is what I’m looking for a solution to.

    How are you inserting it? Using Add Media?

    Hmm there seem to be a lot of extra codes in there.

    Can you try re-adding it and make sure to select full size?

    When you click the Text tab it should look something like this:
    <img src="http://link" alt="" width="" height="" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-429" />

    If this still doesn’t work then can you try deactivate all non-GP plugin?

    I tried re-adding it. The text was correct. I deactivated as many plugins as I could. The only non-GP plugin that I am using is the slider plugin. The photos are still showing up super small. They look normal when I am editing the page, and like I said, the text is correct. All pages have this problem, and one of my four posts. also, I am noticing that these pages have another problem…. The footer is resting in the middle of the page; it is not at the bottom where is belongs.

    They’re being set to 30px wide on your live page. The HTML of the widget isn’t standard in WP, which suggests a plugin is changing it. Can you disable all plugins except for GP Premium (including the slider plugin) to test?

    It was Jetpack! Deactivating it solved the problem, but I had to fully delete it and reinstall it so that I could continue to use it without it causing a problem. All is well in the world.

    Thanks Tom!
    Until next time!
