How to you delete the header picture from sub pages?

  1. How to you delete the header picture from sub pages, but keep it on the home page?

    I am new to WordPress.com and have spent two hours trawling the net to try and find the answer to this question.

    Surely it shouldn't be this hard?

    The blog I need help with is aishadow.wordpress.com.

  2. You cannot delete the header image selectively, except if you have the Custom Design upgrade. If you don't have the upgrade, what you can do is remove the image completely (in Appearance > Header) and insert it in the "Meet Aisha" sticky post.

  3. I do have the custom design upgrade. Would the other option be to "anchor" to the text, so the user doesn't have to scroll down past the picture every time?

  4. a) If you have the upgrade, then what you're looking for can easily be done. But CSS editing questions must be posted in the CSS forum (so that they will be readily accessible to others looking for the same answer).
    b) Sorry, I don't understand your "anchor" question.

  6. How to you delete the header picture from sub pages, but keep it on the home page?

    There's more than one way to do that. One way would be to add CSS to hide the header image on all pages and then a 2nd CSS rule that works to add it back to the home page.

    Here is an example:

    .site-header > a {
    	display: none;
    }
    .home .site-header > a {
    	display: block;
    }
  7. Would the other option be to "anchor" to the text, so the user doesn't have to scroll down past the picture every time?

    I would call that fixed positioning. Also probably an option, but harder to do and I think it's less user friendly when used together with a large header image.

  8. This was my question exactly! But I posted it in an incorrect forum.

    I'm using AutoFocus.

    Designsimply (or anyone who knows), for the CSS code you have above, where would I insert this into the CSS. I don't see it in mine.

    I'm extremely new to this, so I apologize if I have a lot of questions.

  9. @aaroncoleman: This is not your question - featured images in Autofocus aren't header images. And even if it was you question, CSS editing is theme specific: a solution designed for one theme may not work or may produce erratic results in a different theme. Please start a new thread and I'll reply to it.

  10. Sorry. The terminology is new to me, but I understand. I started a new thread.
