    Hi, I am trying to set up the homepage with a banner image at the top but having some issues getting it to display. I tried to include it as a “featured image” on the page titled “home” (using the homepage template) but that does not display. So then I went into Customize > Header Image and placed it there but when I go to the homepage it is stretched and cut off. I have tried the recommended dimensions, 1800 x 600 and I’ve even tried to go larger 2000 x 600. Any advice?

    I appreciate your help.

    Hi Miranda,

    Please make sure you’ve followed the correct steps first, in setting up your homepage:

    1. Create a Page, preferably titled “Home.”
    2. Set the Home Page template within the Page Attributes module.
    3. To to My Site → Design → Customize → Homepage Settings.
    4. Choose the option to display a static page for the homepage.
    5. Select your newly created “Home” page from the Homepage drop down list.
    6. Click the blue Publish button.

    Set your image as your “Home” page’s Featured Image and Publish. If you need further assistance, let me know and please provide a link to your site. Thanks!

    Kind Regards,

    Emily

    Hi Emily,

    Thank you. So I got the image to display but the title of the page “home” is appearing instead of my excerpt text. Any way to over ride this or should I just edit the page title to my headline instead of “Home”.

    Also, is there any way to edit the header image size to make it slightly larger?

    Thanks again for your help!

    Hm, if you’ve added an excerpt to your “Home” page, it should be displaying that text instead of the title. But, I’d really need to be able to view your site to see what’s going on. Can you give a link to the Home page in question?

    I could give you some CSS to increase the size, but again will need to view the site first.

    So the page is not live on the site but the home page is published. Here is the link:

    Thanks. Did you set up your homepage using the set of instructions I provided previously? Check to make sure that the Home Page template is applied to your page titled “Home”..

    Also make sure you have your homepage set to display “A static Page”…

    Those things have been done. And yes, I did follow your steps above.

    Sounds like we’ll need to login and take a look at why the excerpt isn’t showing up then. Please use the following contact form to send login details to our support team: https://organicthemes.com/contact/
