Header Types

Updated: October 26, 2015

In the Event Guide theme you can define type of header for all standard pages, item detail page, item category and when Events Pro plugin is installed, also event detail page and event category.
Location page is common for items and events.

Custom header options

Every header type (excerpt sliders) can have a left panel with custom title, description and custom minimal height of header. But these options might be ignored on special sites, as title has to be set to describe current item, event, category or blog post.

Header for standard pages

For single pages of Items you can navigate to the Page Builder and on the top select your preferred type. Options for the standard pages are:

  • Item Slider – displays slider with Items (business / organizers from Items custom type)
  • Revolution Slider – displays Revolution Slider element in the header
  • Header Map – displays header map element in the header
  • Image – displays single image in the header. Image is specified by the Header Image input visible if this option is selected
  • None – no header
  • Event Slider – displays slider with Events (when Events Pro plugin is installed)

Header for single Item page or single Event page

To set up header of single Item or Event page navigate to the Items Custom Post Type or Event Pro Custom Post Type and create new one, or edit already created Item / Event.
In the Item or Event Options section is available option which specify the type of header.
Available options are:

  • No header
  • Map – displays header map element in the header (standard Google Map or Google Streetview), do not forget turn on Header Map element in page builder for Item page to show the map in header
  • Image – displays single image in the header. Image is specified by the Header Image input visible if this option is selected

In case the header type is set to Image and image is not defined in the Header Image field, the header image for currently edited Item will be taken from the Global Options of Item.
For currently edited Event will be taken from Events Pro Global Options.

To use Streetview in header of Item page, turn on Streetview option in item Address options.

Header for Category and Location taxonomies pages

Item Category and Location taxonomies can have custom header type too. This functionality is available in the create/edit page of Category or Location in the left WordPress menu.
Header Type in both taxonomies can be:

  • Map – displays header map element in the header, do not forget turn on Header Map element in page builder for Item Categories or Item Locations page to show the map in header
