Hi, I am in the midst of migrating my site, currently running on two different themes, into one WordPress install based on Generatepress.
My current blog ist based on this theme: https://independentpublisher.me/
You can see my config at http://freshvanroot.com/blog
Single post link: https://freshvanroot.com/blog/2018/how-create-successful-landing-page/
My question: How can I get my new Generatepress based blog as “single post view” to look like the independentpublisher theme.
I managed to fix the basics (content width, hiding sidebar, etc.), but what i dont know is how to get a cover picture and headline displayed on it.
In the GP site library i see the “volume” template, i like the style of the single post view of it. comes pretty near to what what i need.
My company page is already nearly finished, so i dont want to install site templates that change the config of my complete site.
Thanks for tips!GeneratePress 2.1.4October 16, 2018 at 6:45 am #702150

you can create the Page Hero using the Header Element:

Thanks, but is that a static hero or a dynamic hero that is based on the featured image set in the blogpost?

Hi again, tried this and it seems to work, but the most important setting, making the featured image “full width” is not working.
I read in docu that I need to select merge under display and click full screen under page hero.
I have done both but the image is contained in content area.
