How to Configure Banner Section?

Last updated

You can choose a static image, video, or a slider as your banner. The banner will be displayed at the top of your website.

To set up your banner:

  • Go to Appearance > Customize > Front Page Settings > Banner Section.
  • Choose either Static/Video CTA Banner, Static/Video Newsletter Banner, Banner as Slider,  or Disable Banner Section (if you do not want a banner).

Static/Video CTA Banner

Note: If you have added a video, the image will not be displayed. You can either use an image or a video in the banner section at a time. In the mobile view, the video will not be displayed to save bandwidth, instead, the fallback image will be displayed. So we recommend you to add a banner image as well.

  • Go to Appearance > Customize > Front Page Settings > Banner Section.
  • Choose Static/Video CTA Banner in the Banner Options.
  • Click on Select video to upload the video of your choice in the Banner Section or you can also add the Youtube URL for a video.
  • If you want to display a static image, click on Add New Image to upload the desired image on the banner section.
  • Set Title to add title on the static/video CTA banner section.
  • Enter the Button Label, Button Link.
  • Enable or disable the blue button for “Enable to open in new window”.
  • Select the alignment of the Banner Caption Alignment.
  • Enable or disable the blue button for “Banner Overlay”
  • Click Publish. 

Static/Video Newsletter Banner

Note: If you have added a video, the image will not be displayed. You can either use an image or a video in the banner section at a time. In the mobile view, the video will not be displayed to save bandwidth, instead, the fallback image will be displayed. So we recommend you to add a banner image as well.

  • Go to Appearance > Customize > Front Page Settings > Banner Section.
  • Choose Static/Video Newsletter Banner in the Banner Options.
  • Click on Select video to upload the video of your choice in the Banner Section or you can also add the Youtube URL for a video.
  • If you want to display a static image, click on Add New Image to upload the desired image on the banner section.
  • Enter the Newsletter Shortcode to display the Newsletter on the banner section.
  • Click Publish. 

Banner as Slider

Note: Before you choose Latest Posts, Category, or Page in the Slider Content Style, make sure that you have created these beforehand. You can create Posts via Posts > Add New, Category via Posts > Categories and Pages via Pages > Add New. If there are not enough Posts, Categories or Pages, a grey fallback image will appear in the Banner Section.

  • Go to Appearance >  Customize > Front Page Settings > Banner Section.
  • Choose Banner as Slider in the Banner Options.
  • Select either Latest Posts, Category, Pages, or Custom in the Slider Content Style. In this theme, you can even make your own Custom Slider.
  • Different options are displayed based on the option you choose on the Slider Content Style.
  • Control the number of slides to be displayed through the Number of Slides option.
  • Enable Slider Auto for the auto transition of the slider.
  • Enable Slider Loop for the continuation of the slider.
  • Enable Slider Caption to display text on the slider.
  • Select the Banner Caption Alignment.
  • Select the animation of the slider through the Slider Animation option.
  • Enter the title of the read more button in the Slider Read More field.
