Featured Image not displaying as header image for a page.

    Great Theme, I’m a raw beginner, but have gotten this far by reading other forum support answers. Developing Lions Ridge Web Page

    Now I’m stuck. When uploading a “featured image” to a page it fails to show as the header. Look at Rock Climbing Instruction page. OR Adventure Education What have I done? What do I need to do to fix it?




    Hi ryan,

    What options do you have selected under your admin panel -> appearance -> graphene options -> “display” tab -> header display options?

    Double check these settings, and please report back.



    All unchecked save the “link header image to front page” box. Search box location in nav bar.



    Okay. Now, under appearance -> header, do you have “Display Text” set to “no”?

    If you have Graphene Options >> Display >> Header Display Options >> “Disable Featured Image replacing header image” option unticked, this should work. Your images are big enough.

    If not, it might be the Cimy Header Image Rotator that is messing things up. You might try disabling it for a bit.



    Thanks for your help guys, here’s what I figured out.

    I was trying to set the featured image with an image from a different directory by using the load by URL tab. When loading by URL there is no “set as featured image” link in the media upload window. You must use the “upload from computer” tab or the default “media library”.

    When I “upload from computer” I have the option the “set as featured image”

    So it looks like I need to clean out my default “media library” folder and put my featured image headers in that location.

    Thanks for your quick advice and support. I’m learning little by little.




    @ Ryan,

    Each page and post you create will have a small menu on the edit page appropriately called “Featured Image”. You can click this and use any image as your featured image… either from your media gallery, from your computer, or from a URL.

    If you don’t see this menu on your edit screen, look toward the upper left of the edit screen and there is a small box called “Screen Options”. Click this box and make sure “Featured Image” is ticked.
