I have been trying to setup a nice font header with the script or any nice font for my pages such as About, etc. The theme shows this showcase banner/header at http://demo.styledthemes.com/encounters/custom-widget-styles/ Is this feature/setup available as it is displayed in the theme page? Is there an additional plug-in necessary? Please advise.
That demo page is using a text widget that loads an image (the banner). Basically you would drag a text widget into the “Banner” widget position (no title, unless you are using the advanced text widget which has a disable title feature) and here is the img code I used for the demo:
If you use the advanced text widget (you need to download that one), you can disable the titles, and publish it to select pages as well. Otherwise you would be using the Dynamic Widgets plugin to manage that.
Thanks for the response. I can’t edit the header on the image source, can I? I’m trying to find a simple plug-in or widget of some kind that will allow me to create nice headers within the encounters theme…? I think I have downloaded all of the recommended plug ins….?
Not quite sure what you mean by edit the header on the image source, but basically you would upload your own image headers (I did the text super imposed on top of the image and then uploaded it) and then replace my image path you see further up this page to the one that links to your image.
You also don’t have to just use a static image, you could also use sliders in this widget position too. Otherwise, if you want actual text that you can type in, you will need to do some html and css in a text widget for the banner widget position. For myself, I cropped that image, added text on top, saved it as a jpg, then uploaded it.
