    How can you make the homepage (featured) image either rotating images or one larger image without having the image text? Also, is there any way to make the banners in the other pages (Gateway theme) static instead of rotating?

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

    Hi,

    Also, is there any way to make the banners in the other pages (Gateway theme) static instead of rotating?

    This part of your request doesn’t require CSS customization. The site header image (or images) will display on static pages with any template assigned other than the home page template. To show one header image, rather than randomized images, at Customize > Header Image choose one image, by clicking on it, from either the suggested or (if applicable) previously uploaded sections, and then click the Save & Publish button.

    Thank you for the reply! So a little more information, what I am trying to do it have a different image on each page.

    I get you now. That might require CSS customization. On some themes a featured image set on a static page will displace the header image. That doesn’t happen on Gateway, except on a page with the Home Page Template assigned.

    Rotating featured images will, I think, require custom CSS, but expanding the height of the featured image without overlaid text doesn’t. I thought I had previously accomplished that on Gateway by stacking line break tags (
    ) in the Hero Content field at Customize > Theme Options > Homepage Template. In tests today, I found the line break tag alone didn’t work, but the following spacer code does work when stacked:
    &nbsp;<br />

    The code got stripped. The code that worked when stacked in the Hero Content field is

    & n b s p ; < br  / >
    & n b s p ; < br  / >
    & n b s p ; < br  / >
    & n b s p ; < br  / >

    but without spaces between the characters. I’ve added spaces so that it doesn’t get stripped here.

    You can add as many of those spacers as you want to increase the height of the featured image on the home page template, until it reaches the height limit allowed by the theme. I added up to about forty of them in tests, and it was still expanding with each addition.

    Hi @miptexas, I’m seeing a header image on your site right now without any text over it.

    You can randomize the header images (as you have done) at Customize > Header Image, and on each load or reload of any page that does not have a set featured image, a different image will appear. There is no way to create a slideshow type of function in the header area on Gateway. It is not something that can be done with CSS.

    If you want a different image on each page, set a Featured Image for each page. Any page that does not have a featured image set will then show the Header image you have set at Customize > Header Image.

    @thesacredpath,
    Hey there!

    If you want a different image on each page, set a Featured Image for each page.

    I was going to suggest that, but I didn’t because of the results I obtained in tests. On static pages with any template other than the Home Page template on the Gateway theme, featured images appear under the page title and beside the content of the page. They appear as if they’d been inserted in the content, AND the site header is not displaced by the setting a featured images as it is on other themes, and on the Home Page template on this theme.

    If you omit the text in the Hero Title and Hero Content, the height of the featured image shrinks. I thought the OP was asking how to omit text overlaying the featured image without the height decreasing, here:

    or one larger image without having the image text?

    Clarification: The first part of my previous post pertains to static pages with templates other than the Home Page template assigned. The second part pertains only to the home page with the Home Page template assigned.

    …or, actually, any page with the home template assigned.
