    Hello,

    Is there a way/option to remove the dark gray box (the one that contains text “Beautiful charity theme inspired by …” at your demo) on top of the homepage image (without CSS – I don’t own a premium plan)?

    If not could you suggest a workaround (through the available theme/wordpress options) to having a homepage image without anything on it?

    Thank you very much,
    Dimitris

    The blog I need help with is: aragreece.wordpress.com

    Hi Dimitris,

    thank you for using our theme.

    Unfortunately without using Custom CSS it’s not possible. I’ll think about it tomorrow, to see if I can make an update in case when you don’t want to have text on the image and will let u know asap.

    All the best,
    Ana

    Thanks for your reply Ana,

    That’s most unfortunate. Your theme has a lof of great features and I’m using it to set up a site/blog for an artisan guild. Had I known though that you must have text / the dark grey box is compulsory I most likely wouldn’t have convinced the guild to buy it. We need a homepage image and this kinda ruins it, plus I’m in a somewhat difficult position now…

    If you could create an update or provide me with an alternative option that allows a homepage image without the box when no text is used I would be most thankful.

    If not please update your description of this element on the them presentation, I think it’s important for potential buyes to know this is not optional.

    Anyway, hope to hear good news…

    All the best,
    Dimitris

    Hi Dimitris,

    ok here is the way how u can make it happen.

    You’ll need to upload featured image for your front page and don’t add any content to the editor. Inside the Customize-Theme Options-Front Page-Button Text to open Slide: leave this empty and also Front Page – Opening Slide Panel Content leave empty.

    Hope this helps.

    All the best,
    Ana

    Hello Ana,

    Thanks a lot for the help!

    I see now that I had already tried what you proposed and didn’t work because the editor won’t allow no content and no title on the page at the same time: when I try to erase everything and press update it reverts back (to whatever content or title there was). One of the two has to exist, which I think was what confused me.

    I initially had no title in place (wanted the child pages to appear below the homepage image without text in between) and had a full stop written as content (trying to see if the dark gray box would perhaps appear much smaller with a minimum text), so when I tried to do what you suggested it wouldn’t let me, until I wrote something as title.

    Again, thank you for your help, much appreciated.

    All the best,
    Dimitris

    Hi Dimitris,

    oh yes title needs to be there but you will still be able to have just an image without text above.

    Or you can use new editor blocks and create page on your own.

    All the best,
    Ana
