    Something is wrong in the code of my theme Catch Sketch “free” It will not allow me to add a featured image or content description of the “blog” page before a post which will be shown on the “blog” page.

    I am no longer able to have a specific feature image used just for the “blog” page I created or have text paragraph block which describes the content of the posts that follow. Now I can not do either even though I created the initial blog page first the way I want and then go to customize tab and homepage setting and select this as the page for “posts” to be directed to or housed under. It ignores or removes the contents of the “blog” page.

    Here is my page in question:
    https://www.axumcreative.com/street-portraits-la-blog/

    1. I would like to change the “archive” text and grey area to a featured image (currently it wont update).
    2. I would like to place a paragraph block of text between the featured image and page title “Blog” or right after to describe the content of the page.
    3. I would like to be able to change the word “Blog” to something else like “Articles”

    I have tried creating a “blog 2” page and testing to see if it was an error with the first “blog” page and the same thing happened. I do not know what to do.

    Please advise.

    @axumcreative: Hello there,

    1. To option to have a different image in the grey are is only available in pro version of the theme. I suggest you to upgrade to pro. You can check out the additiona-features available in pro version of the theme.

    2. To do that you will need to create a child theme and do a little bit of customization. Let me know if you are familiar with child theme customization so that I can guide you.

    3. For that
    Go to => Appearance => Customize => Homepage/ Frontpage Settings => Recent Posts Heading => Edit the text and Publish.

    Let me know if this helps you out!
    Kind Regards,

    I see, looks like I have to upgrade. But I need to figure out how to upgrade and not lose all the current work which is already done with the free theme. Any suggestions or instructions on this upgrading seamlessly?

    thanks

    @axumcreative: Hello there,
    Please follow this link to upgrade to pro. All your customization from the free version should migrate to pro after you upgrade. All you need to do is install and activate the theme.

    Let me know if you come across any issues.
    Kind Regards,

    @skandha: Hi,

    I have upgrade and installed the pro theme but do not see the option to remove the gray “archive” on my blog page for posts.

    In your previous post you gave directions as to how to change the “Recent Posts Heading” text. I have done this but I specifically want to remove the gray box and even text that says “Archives”. I would really like to insert an image in this area as default blog page. I just wanted to be specific and clear about what I am trying to do.

    Thanks

    @axumcreative: Hello there,
    To change the Header Image of Blog page.

    Edit the page you have selected as blog page => Insert a Featured Image and Update the Page.

    Then,
    Go to => Appearance => Customize => Header Media => Enable on => Select Entire Site, Page/Post Featured Image and Publish.

    Regarding the Archive text that appears over the Header Image on Blog page. I have fixed that and now it will show the blog page title. An update will be released soon. I will let you know when the update is released.

    Let me know if this works out!
    Kind Regards,

    Skandha,
    That worked. I am unable to add a featured image but the header is gone. Any thoughts?

    @deepeekomal: Hello there,
    The above CSS I provided you removes the Header Image section in the blog page.

    If you want a Header Image to appear in the blog page first remove the CSS I provided you above.

    Then,
    Edit the blog page => Set a featured image and Update the page.

    Finally,
    Go to => Appearance => Customize => Header Media => Enable on => Select Entire Site, Page/Post Featured Image and Publish.

    Let me know if this is what you want!
    Kind Regards,
    Skandha
