All my header images I have used in the past would post correctly. It seems whatever I use doesn’t show on the home page anymore. Any reason for that? My old ones are still fine. Anything new I post, it doesn’t work.

The only one that doesn’t have an image is the latest one, correct?
Have you set the featured image for it?
Do you have any custom functions added regarding the featured images?April 7, 2016 at 6:58 am #185034Sean
It’s been a while since I messed around with it. But I had used the “Page Header” function before, for that purpose. All my other post don’t have a featured image, just the image from the “Page Header” addon section. And correct, it’s only the latest article. The only thing I can think of, is updating the theme/plugin had something to do with it.April 7, 2016 at 10:46 am #185099TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
Any reason why you’re not using regular Featured Images for this?: https://generatepress.com/knowledgebase/featured-images/April 7, 2016 at 2:30 pm #185153Sean
Well oddly enough, it works. Setting it to Featured Image. I know there was a reason it wasn’t an option before. I’m assuming the updates had something to do with this working better now. Perhaps I’ve been using page header because of how it looks on the blog page itself? Where the image is in a padded area above the article, and not inside? Only thing I can think of.April 7, 2016 at 9:23 pm #185201TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
Featured image/Page Header should display the exact same. The only reason for the Page Header add-on is to crop the image, or use it along with some of the more advanced options (content etc..).April 8, 2016 at 8:15 am #185330Sean
Whoa, you’re spot on. I removed the page header, and just let the featured image take over. Same exact thing. So long as I make my images the exact dimensions I want them to be, as I’ve been doing already. Perfect, one less step I need to do.April 8, 2016 at 8:55 am #185343TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
You can always resize your images in the WP Media Library as well 🙂
The Page Header add-on is meant for more advanced page headers, when displaying just an image, Featured Images work great.
Glad it’s all working!
