    In this example, http://demo.styledthemes.com/circumference/widgets-layout/, there is a banner at the top of the page, but this is the only page that I see it on in the demo. It says, “Use for sliders, images, and page captions like this.” My question is, can I use a different banner on each “inside” page of the web site, and have a different image on each page banner? This is an example of what I’m describing (http://www.ciber.com/us/). They are using a different graphic banner at the top of each page. If not, is there a different theme that you would recommend instead?

    Thank you.

    Hi Sandy….fairly easy to do. If you are not using Jetpack which has a Widget Visibility feature, you can use a plugin called “Display Widgets” which is fairly easy to do compared to others that I’ve used such as Dynamic Widgets.

    This tutorial for Circumference should help you out:

    I should also mention that the demo link you gave me shows the custom header with captions option which you can also do. It’s a little more learning curve, but this Circumference tutorial will help you with that one:

    Can I install a different banner on each page?

    You can yes…just by the first tutorial link I pasted above. Use a plugin Display Widgets for that. You upload your banners (images) to your media library and copy the image file URL and then use a text widget with html such as:

    short description

    Then the plugin adds at the bottom of each widget, settings to choose where you want to show that one on what page. Do the same thing for additional pages and banners.

    I downloaded both dymamic widets and display widgets. Which one will accomplish placing a different graphic banner on the top of each page, below the nav menu? Your tutorial mentions dynamic widets, but doesn’t mention display widgets. Thank you.

    Actually, I think I figured it out, and it’s displaying the banner. What size should the banner be and what are the size differences and placements between the banner short and the banner wide? Thank you.

    The image for the wide banner can be as wide as you want it to be, and the short is 1140px in width. Your height can be anything you want as the height of the banner container area will self-adjust to it.

    As for the tutorial, I didn’t realize I did it on Dynamic Widgets…it’s a very powerful plugin but does have a learning curve to it. After I did that theme, I came across the Display Widgets one which I found to work easier for most and simple to use. Both plugins can achieve the results you want, but I would say for keeping it simple, use the Display Widgets plugin.

    Thank you … I will give it a try. One more question … will this option, using the Display Widgets plugin, work on all of your themes?
