Disable the Front Page demo Banner after activation

When you first install Celestial, the free version, you will find that you get a sample showcase banner showing on the front page. This is just used for display purposes, but you can disable it if you want to start using the WordPress custom header feature. Currently this sample banner is setup so that once you drag a widget into this Front Page Showcase sidebar position to use your own image, the sample one will automatically disappear.

However, if you want to use the WordPress custom Header option, this works slightly different and means you have one extra step to perform…

  1. Go to Appearance >> Themes >> click on the “Customize” link next to the thumbnail of Celestial
  2. When the customizer opens, go to the left column and click on the Header Image tab and “Uncheck” the box next to “Showcase Demo Banner
  3. Click “Save & Publish

Now your demo banner will be gone and you can proceed to the WordPress Header settings, or if you prefer not to have any banner or header showing, simply move on to continue setting up your new website.
