RW8 and Banner replacement

Since I recently upgraded to RW8 even themes that previously supported Banner replacement now will not allow it, saying ‘The theme you have selected does not support banner images’ - what is wrong? Thanks.

Nothing - that’s the way it’s designed. Theme does not include a content area for a banner. If you are using stacks, use an “extracontent” stack to place your banner. The theme itself may have a banner selection option, but it will only those included in the theme itself.

Thank you for your reply, I am a real newbie with RW so I do not really understand. Should I therefore not use a theme at all for my home page and simply create a stack page? If so how? I cannot see how to create a page without a theme? Sorry to ask what is probably a really stupid question?

There’s definitely a place in RW8 to put banner images (you can see Ben doing it in one of his videos here:

But maybe I am misinterpreting what you mean by banner replacement

Might want to give us an example of the theme that supported banners in RW7 that don’t work in RW8.

But in RWQ8 the area for adding the replacement banner image as shown in the video will not allow a replacement, art says ‘The theme you have selected does not support banner images’ regardless of the theme I am using, even though in RW7 it was allowed (such as the Voyager theme?

I just opened a new project, Selected Voyager as the theme, and dragged an image into the banner area in General settings. It worked fine.

are you sure the theme is set correctly?

How can the theme not be correct? Thanks for your input but even if I open a previous website (created in RW7) where I used Voyager RW8 says ‘The theme you have selected does not support banner images’ even though it works fine and shows my replacement image, I just cannot add a new website and change the banner image with any theme?

OK folks, thx for you input but I may have a solution, I just created a completely new website and selected Voyager as the theme and I was able to change the banner so maybe I will just work on this and transfer everything, thanks for your input and I will return if this fails. Thanks again.

Kinda sounds like you may have some css working…
