    Hi. With Epix, if I choose to have my “home page” be the “Most Recent Post” then the theme is clever enough to choose the feature image from my most recent post in the list as my background image on the list page. The same happens if I browse to all posts from a particular category. Using the feature of creating a Page of type “Blog” where I select which categories to include, the default background image on the lists page does not happen. Is there a way to enable this?

    Hi,

    I am not entirely sure what you mean by this, do you have an example of 2 different pages so I can see what you mean please?

    Hi. Yes, if you go to the following, you will see that as you move through the pagination links at the bottom, the background image changes to whatever the feature image is of the first post on that page: http://chameleonmuseenterprises.com/delaunfuller/ This is where I’ve selected the option in my General config for the home page to show “most recent posts”

    The same occurs if you go to a specific category: http://chameleonmuseenterprises.com/delaunfuller/category/just-bloggin/

    But, I created a new Page and selected the “Blog” template. I then clicked the “Blog” tab on the Page and selected the categories that I want to be included. In this example, the feature image of the first post on each page does NOT appear as the background: http://chameleonmuseenterprises.com/delaunfuller/blog/

    Do you see what I mean?

    Hi,

    I will have to ask Andy about this. I will get back to you soon.

    Kind regards,

    Hi,

    If you set a featured image to the blog page, it will display the featured image in the backgroundf. It will not show it automatically like the other category pages as it is a separate page and has it’s own functionalities.

    Hope this helps.

    Kind regards,
    Tom

    OK. I’d love to see this on the list of possible enhancements for a future release. It certainly makes the blog page more interesting if the BG updates to match the latest post. That being said, I realize I can have my “blog” link really just be a link to a category common across all posts that I want to end up in my blog. And then I will get the desired functionality.

    Thank you!
