This is a Wordpress Challenge. I'm not looking to use any other CMS to solve this problem. I'm looking for a Themler solution.

I'd liked to use a WordPress plugin called "unique Header," found at https://wordpress.org/plugins/unique-headers/
which allows a user to change the header of a post.

For those of you who need to understand why I want to do this, please see my website at www.vacationwithteens.com. Each location I visit should have a header that represents the area I'm writing about. See my Niagara Falls header and the content. Notice the Niagara Falls header is on all my posts. This has to change for each post I make.

When I make a post...I want to change the header to represent the post information by using the plugin. The plugin doesn't work because of the Themler theme. It will work for all other themes. There must be something I can do to make it work with my custom theme.

What do I have to do with Themler in order to allow the plugin to work? A solution will allow me to create this option for clients without making them purchase Themler to make header changes. I've tried suggestions from other Forum posts but I keep getting errors, and other suggestions are more confusing than helpful.

Please provide details, or even better, create a video on YouTube so that I can follow your steps.

Remember....if there is coding involved please provide a step by step process to make this work or just create a video proving that you can do it for yourself rather than suggesting that I try something that you haven't tested out yourself or not sure will work.

This should be a fun challenge for you web/themler/wordpress gurus. Someone out there knows how to make this happen and I'd like to thank you in advance for your help.

Hi,

There is a note on the plug-in's page:

Requirements
You must use a theme which utilizes the built-in custom header functionality of WordPress. If your theme implement it's own header functionality, then this plugin will not work with it.

Themler theme utilizes it's own header functionality.

Currently we do not have any ready solution on how to make such plug-ins work with Themler themes.
But I've asked our developers to search for the possible workaround.

In the meantime you can try using custom templates.

Thank you,
Olivia

Please let me know if something is not clear and if you have any further questions.

Thank you,

Hi Olivia,

I need this funktionality too to use a WP Plugin to change Header imager per post/page. Your workaround is now more than 2 years old and I'm wondering if there is a button/setting today implementd in Themler to enable this? Thank you in advance.

Dana

Hello,

Unfortunately we have not implemented this feature. Therefore the solution should be the same. CMS CODE control is available under the insert tab >>More.
