NO banner in Mountains theme please

Im not the first to ask, I see, but there are no answers. Hopefully someone from realMac will see this and realise that Mountains needs a tweak.
Im happy enough to have a hero image on hero pages, but for Contact screen, and general information, I REALLY need to lose the banner, or at least reduce it to a strip image size.
So far, everyone who has asked for that here has been told ‘tough’.
How hard would it be to have a tickbox not to have that banner taking up the whole page on specific pages?

You might have a look at this post I just updated. You might play with the sizes. If that doesn’t work it’s always best to provide a URL to a test page.


With free themes, it is largely a case of “you get what you pay for”. That is why several companies exist that offer paid themes that have many more features.

To reduce the height of the hero unit in Mountains, consider using custom CSS code like this:

@media screen and (min-width: 768px) {
	.hero-background {
        height: 50vh;

I may yet, although I haven’t uploaded yet as I don’t like what I have at this stage.

I’m also probably far from alone in working on the basis that using these themes is what I paid for. :slight_smile:

I’ll try this CSS (if I can work out where to stick it… )

The CSS would go into the page inspector (right hand side) on the pages you don’t want the full hero on.

The code inside the post I linked to above was tested by the original poster.

Works perfectly! Thank you for this. :slight_smile:

While we have your attention – I can’t get the Mountains sidebar text size to bump up. And other problems. I have bought a lot of add-ons, did NOT intend to have them active, but wondering if that can interfere…??
Haven’t used RapidWeaver for years, and can find very little documentation of Mountains and surprisingly little basic intro to RW8, itself.

I have no problem spending money for support and tutorials, but there just doesn’t seem to be much. Or, rather, it’s not easy to find where it’s hiding in videos, etc. in various forums and from developers. I’m feeling lost and daunted – and I do know some coding, so this is unusual for me.

Any guidance from anyone?? I’ll certainly follow it. :slight_smile:

I might suggest you start with the free stuff

If you want more training and don’t mind paying for it then You should checkout Rapidweaver Classroom:

Not sure how you are trying to do this. I’m assuming you have entered the text in the sidebar area, Select all or part of the text and then you can cmd+ to make larger. You can repeat this and keep making it larger. to make it smaller cmd-. You can also get to these from the “Format” menu. Just make sure the text is selected first.

To be fair, once you put stuff in the sidebar, formatting it is obscure/hidden/arcane
Id expect the same kind of controls as styled text page.
Often to get a link in there I end up making one on a full page, then copying into the sidebar.
Sidebars always feel like an afterthought.

A good stack to put content in the sidebar (or other areas) is the Teleporter stack from Doobox
