Weaver Extreme – Header shows in multiple places on a post
I want to be able to use a Featured Image as the header of a blog page. I appear to be able to do this just fine. However a copy of the same image appears as the first image in my blog. I don’t want this I would like it to be my Featured image my Page header image and nowhere else on the blog.
I am using Weaver Extreme
I have a couple of Widgets in the side bar Content Block x 2 and Sub Categories both of these show the same picture so it appears 4 times on a blog very frustrating.June 20, 2020 at 16:13 UTC - Views: 33 #64696
You don’t explain what method you used to do what you wanted.
The proper method would be to do the following:
Make sure you are not using the WP default blog page by going to Settings > Reading, select “a static page” for your home page, and make sure NOTHING is select in the posts page drop down list (showing -select-)
Then create your blog page using the “page with posts” template.
Then select a featured image for that page (bottom right of the page editing page), and then in the Xtreme options for this page > Layout tab, > Featured image drop down list, select header image replacement.
That should only make that image be used as the header replacement on that page.
Alternatively, you can create a blog page using a regular page based on the Default template and show posts shortcode(s). but changing the header on that page would be done the same as the above.
If that does not work, please provide a link to the page showing the issue and explain what method you chose as well as how you created your blog page.June 21, 2020 at 01:17 UTC - Views: 27 #64698
Weaver Extreme Header shows in two places.
I want to be able to use a Featured Image as the header of a blog page. I appear to be able to do this just fine. However a copy of the same image appears as the first image in my blog. I do not want this I would like it to be my Featured image and my Page header image and nowhere else on the blog.
Example of Blog Page Exploding Wheel Barrows
I am using Weaver Extreme
To achieve my aim
My Home page is a fixed static page with a specific layout including a video header and TABS
My Post Page is – Select –
Customise – Images – Post Specific – Feature Image Location – Full Post – Header Image Replacement
Customise – Images – Page Specific – Feature Image Location – Full Post – Header
On the actual Post in the Weaver Xtreme Options for this post as below
I do not have any page templates other than the normal WordPress templates and cannot find how I would even include them. Nothing in the documentation I read told me where to go to make them happen.

There seem to be some confusion on terminology here.
the link you gave me is NOT a blog page, it is a single Post page.
So are you saying you want all single post pages to use the post featured image as the header image replacement?
If so are you saying that you do not want that featured image to show in Blog pages (pages showing all posts as excerpts) or post widgets?
If so, then go to Main options > Post Specifics > Featured image section.
Then in FI locations- Excerpts AND FI locations- Full posts select “hide on blog view ”
And on FI locations- Single Page select “Header Image replacement”
This will use the post featured image as the header on the Single post page, but hide the featured image from the blog page and widget
In the customizer these settings are Images > post Specifics > Featured Image – Full Blog Posts set to Hide on blog page
Images > post Specifics > Featured Image – Excerpt Posts set to Hide on blog page
Images > post Specifics > Featured Image – Single page set to Header Image replacementJune 22, 2020 at 04:16 UTC - Views: 18 #64700
Sorry about the confusion in type I didn’t know there was a difference. It is a single Blog Post or in WP terminology a Post.
I want this post to have the Featured Image as the Header for the Post I do not need it to show anywhere else in the post.
I followed your instructions below is the setting from Weaver Xtreme Admin
However when I go to the Customizer I don’t have the same options its quite different. I do not have the options you say
Images > post Specifics > Featured Image – Full Blog Posts set to Hide on blog page – This option does not exist. It doesn’t exist anywhere in the customizer
Images > post Specifics > Featured Image – Excerpt Posts set to Hide on blog page. This option does not exist in customizer.
So I’m at a loss, what you are telling me makes sense I just don’t have that option on Weaver Extreme am I missing something here?

I cant think of a way you would have different options in the customizer.
DO make sure that at the top of the customizer you have Weaver Interface level set to FULL.
Also make sure you have the latest versions of everything
Weaver Xtreme Version: 4.3.4
Theme Support Version: 4.0.3
Xtreme Plus Version: 3.1.1
Eventually take a screen grab of the customizer options under Images > Post Specifics
In the mean time, you can set the options in the Legacy interface (Main options > Post Specifics)June 22, 2020 at 05:00 UTC - Views: 14 #64702
That said, the image of the Wheelbarrow in the post itself does not appear to be a featured image, but an image inserted in the content.
Are you sure you have not inserted the image in the post content?
If not, the image also has a strange class pf-content that I don’t recognize as a weaver class, Are you using a plugin by any chance that would be interfering?
To be sure, deactivate ALL non weaver plugins and see if that makes a differenceJune 22, 2020 at 23:10 UTC - Views: 9 #64706
Thank you so much for your time and effort on my behalf, you are correct the I have a plugin Featured Image from URL, switching it off solved my problem. It has some options I will try and see if I can make it work with the theme but otherwise, I will ditch it.

If there are things the plugin was doing you still need, explain in details and we can check if we can figure a way to do thatJune 23, 2020 at 01:41 UTC - Views: 5 #64708
Thank you for your offer, I am successfully running Feature Image from URL and Weaver with the correct result, my previous URL will show that. I have all my photos and videos on other websites. Smugmug handles most of them, I use this and don’t store on my server as I have extremely limited space. I found that the combinations of options were causing my problems, I hadn’t configured Weaver or FI from URL properly and with your help I found my way around the issues. Thanks again
