    Tom, I’ve sung the praises of GP to many others. That is until I saw that you killed off the very simple and intuitive page header function. All I’m trying to do is put a static image below the primary nav, which was simple with page headers. Now a 10 year user of WP can’t even figure that out with your plug in changes? Your page hero isn’t very heroic at all, it doesn’t work for simple functions. If someone can please tell me how to place a static image below the nav bars that would be helpful, and if you’d just put the page header function back on the left side of the WP dash with the old functions, I’m sure it would make many more people than just me happy.

    Hi Jeff,

    Have you tried adding a featured image to the page? It should appear where you’re wanting by default.

    Let us know ๐Ÿ™‚


    I have. And I’ve tried custom image, with all display rules set to appear on posts, pages, etc. This image I’m trying to insert is a key credential message that cannot be in text due to SEO implications, so having it display where it is easily seen is critical. Formerly, the page header plug in took care of this issue instantly with the “global settings” tab. The image does not display in any form not matter what settings I choose. Keep in mind that, while the changes to GP may seem insignificant from the development end, for some of us our websites are our sole source of income so plug in changes matter. When you change GP, you are potentially impacting a person’s livelihood. Please put the pages function back, elements is not working as described.


    I discovered that text or code must be entered in the box at the top of the page hero page that allows the image to be partially seen. Why? This is an image, it has it’s own dimensions, why would text or code be needed in order to view the image? What code should be entered here to space down for the image to be viewed? Again, the page header function required none of these unnecessary steps.

    If all you’re trying to do is add a static image under the header, you just need to add a featured image: https://www.screencast.com/t/kFW3R3QGP6

    No need for Elements or the Page Header module.

    If you want to use Elements because you need Display Rules, you can always use a Hook Element: https://docs.generatepress.com/article/hooks-element-overview/

    You’d just add the HTML for the static image:

    <div class="grid-container">
        <img src="URL TO YOUR IMAGE" alt="" />

    Page Header itself is very outdated and no longer supported. I definitely understand that our decisions affect our users – I don’t take that lightly. In this case, Page Header was replaced by Elements in July of 2018 and I believe this is the first time we’ve been asked to add it back.

    I’m confident that we can achieve what you’re after without the old Page Header module – there are a lot of options when it comes to adding an image in the hero area.

    Let me know if either of the above options work for you ๐Ÿ™‚
