    I solved part of this – the browser inspector told me that the text areas are, e.g., #lp-text-two

    But I’d still like to be able to go directly to a page of the site.

    @cgs18 For the record, I paid for one of their themes – to be precise, I paid for support for the Nirvana theme – and got great support. It isn’t (wasn’t) much money, and ended up being well worth it to me. That was after I’d played with Nirvana for a bit, decided it would work for me, but still needed to tweak it a bit. I agree on not spending money on themes upfront – you really need to play with them for a while first – but if you do choose one and have questions, it’s worthwhile.

    I figured it had to be easier than this, so I spent some time looking through the theme file structure, which led to this answer:
    1. in the theme images, the bike image is in the static image folder. My first thought was just to replace this with my own ‘bike’ image. But eventually, I found you can
    2. Go to Landing page > Slider > Slider image > Change file. That allows you to select a new front page image.

    This is not at all obvious, since after all, the image is not sliding. But there is a fairly cryptic note that says ” Slider Image The default image can be replaced by setting a new static image.” So there is a built-in method for this – it’s just hidden and not at all intuitive. I wish I’d found this before moving on to another theme. Maybe I’ll use Septera for something else.

    @cgs18 I don’t have a “remove current header image” option – just hide image, which apparently has no effect on the main site (though it seems to in the sidebar).


    @jhabdas
    Partly for this reason, I gave up on Septera for the moment, but I’ll keep your method in mind should I try again. Thanks.
    Or maybe not. Just took a look, and it appears beyond my competence – can’t see how to point to the image I want. Oh well.

    Thanks. That should be enough to point me in the right direction.

    That should read “I’m a bit puzzled as to which piece of the code in frontpage.php specifies the post type for the query.”

    PS I decided to try Anima (for the post title overlay), and in Anima (with no tweaks of any kind), the featured image header works fine. So, problem (inadvertently) solved.

    Thanks. That works in the sense that it does use a crop of some images as the header. But it screws up the default header on other pages, and some of the featured image headers as well. I’ll just give up on this option. Too bad.

    I tested with an image far greater than the 1200 size (2400), and I still get the full image, not the crop.

    Thanks. I’ve got a child theme in place, but I’m a bit puzzled as to piece of the code in frontpage.php specifies the post type for the query.
