Setting Featured Image on Pages

I’m having an issue setting a featured image on any of my pages. I am using the illdy theme on without little issue, but on I can’t set a unique page featured header image. It keeps reverting to the “blog archive header image” instead of the featured image selected on the individual page.

From what I’m reading on the support forums this isn’t possible unless I change the header image for each page manually via Custom CSS? see below

Appearance -> Customize -> Additional CSS,

.page-id-12 #header {
background-image: url(“”) !important;
where 12 is the Page ID you want to change the header image, and give the image URL.

But that’s not true… I know its possible without adding css code. I have already have a different header image for every page on but for some reason, I can’t get the featured image to change for each page on despite them using the same theme. I look forward to any insight the community can give, thanks :slight_smile:

Hello there,

I hope you are doing well today.

You need to ensure that the featured image you are using is large enough to span the width of the the page, also try removing the image from the blog archive via Appearance > Customize > Blog Options > Blog Archive Header Image.

Best Regards,

The image I’m using is 3000 pixels wide which is more than enough to span the width of the page.

1 - I resized my photo to 1920 x 532 which is the recommended illdy image header size and nothing changed.
2 - I disabled all plugins and nothing changed.
3 - I removed the image from the blog archive and all that did was swap the coffee cup for a solid color background instead of showing my featured image as the page header.

Again, I’m not new to the illdy theme. I use it with little issue on where every page has its own unique header image. This is only a problem with the illdy theme on which is setup the same as the previous site. Is there another option available to resolve this?

Thank you in advance :slight_smile:


this is the correct css you must use:

.page-id-12 #header {
background-image: url(“”) !important;

it’s important to end image path with image extension .jpg or .png otherwise it will not work

if you want to enable featured image as a header bg image you have to enable it from appearance > customize > general options > header

Thanks, I swear I had already looked at appearance > customize > general options > header… but apparently not. Thank you for the help :slight_smile:


hi Curtis

:slight_smile: that’s why we are here, is there anything else?

actually yes, I have the same (small) issue on both sites I use illdy. When selecting a color scheme, the hover color stays on default yellow instead of any other color I select. I go through Appearance -> Customize -> Colors and select a color scheme but it doesn’t reflect on which currently has a hover color of teal selected but instead yellow shows up.


I still need your admin details :slight_smile:

ERROR: Invalid username. Lost your password?

Sorry Noda, I jumped the gun and deleted the admin role right after you solved my header issue. I (re)created the admin role for you again, thank you in advance :slight_smile:
