    Hi,
    so my plan is: I have a travel blog and set up the different destinations as categories.
    How can I set a background header for the categories with the category name in the foreground?
    It has to be a different background picture for each category.
    Do I always have to set up a new element for each category or is the a way to make up the settings once and then only putting in the featured image?

    Hi there,

    It should be possible to add a filter telling your single Category Element to use the background image.

    How are you adding background images to your categories?

    Hi,
    thanks for the fast reply.
    I havent set any background images for categories so far. I saw theres a possibility to add a “featured image” if I go to “pages” –> then choose the page I want to edit, and then on the right hand side under the permalink mode.
    So if would be perfect if I could make settings valid for all categories, so that I only have to upload the featured image for each category. And the category name would automatically appear in the foreground of the picture.
    But I am a beginner, I dont know if that is even possible…

    Oh I just saw, I might have had a thinking mistake…
    Because I first added my destinations as pages, but then changed it to categories, because of the links.
    The categories cannot be edited in the page section I assume?

    Categories are edited differently than pages, and don’t have featured images by default.

    I looked around for some category featured image plugins, but I can’t find any that were updated within the last couple years.

    If you’re able to find a good one, I should be able to help integrate it with Elements.
