Hi, I’m using the Pivot demo site from the site library for my site and I’m having an issue with the header background image in Elements.
I have changed it so instead of just displaying the same image on each page I want to show the page’s featured image in the background.
When I don’t select a featured image, the page uses the fallback image which works fine but as soon as I use a featured image it shows the entire full heigh image instead of sticking to the height of the header.
Here’s preview of a page working correctly (with fallback image displaying):

Any ideas what I’m doing wrong?
Thanks very much!

Hi David, thanks for your reply. Sorry, maybe I wasn’t very clear in my explanation. I do want to display the featured image on the page but I don’t want the space below the image (as shown in the second link; it seems to push the content down to where the image ends).
I added the first link to show the image/page should behave – does that make sense?
Please let me know if you need any more info or a screenshot of my element settings etc.
Thanks so much,

LOL that worked! That seems counter-intuitive to me?!?! Can you explain how that works?

When you add a Featured Image to your Post, GP adds this to the post content – its position is determined by the Featured Image settings in Customizer > Layout > Blog.
When you create a Header Element, and select Featured Image as the background it simply adds the featured image to the hero background. What it does not do is remove the default image. That is what the Disable Featured Image is for.
Some users want a hero background and the featured image to be display.December 21, 2020 at 8:28 am #1589582Konrad
Ah, I get it now. Thanks every so much!
