    Could you please tell me how to have an image the full width of the page like the one you have on this page. I have uploaded images to a page but when I open the page the image is not full width, even if I have marked it as such in the row design options.
    I have looked through the documentation and other fields in the theme but I cannot find how to do this. I’ve even used this image that came with the theme on my page but it still does not go full width.
    [I’m sorry if this is a basic question but I’m not a designer just doing this myself. I’ve created websites before and really like this theme but some of the documentation assumes you have a lot more knowledge.]

    Do I have to create a slider just for one image? Will that make it work?
    I want a different image on each page so I don’t want the image as part of the header particularly. Can I do that?

    Also, can I have a picture at the top of the blog page or is that not possible?

    Thanks for any advice

    Hi @karenrevell

    Can you please send the link of the page where there is a fullwidth image that you want to imitate?

    Regarding your question about the “image on top of the blog page”, can you please send a sample or a mock up on how you want it to look?

    Thanks!

    So on this site and page you have here (http://acoda.com/forums/topic/full-width-images/), you have a picture at the top of the page which goes right across the screen ie full width. I presume you have set this up as a header.

    I wanted to inset a picture on a page (not as a header) and also have it full width, but when I insert a row and add a file from media it does not go full width. I have actually tried the photo you have on this page, have set the row to full width but it still does not go fully across the page.
    Do I have to set it as a header to get full width on a page or can I insert a picture in a page and get full screen width?

    With regards to the blog page it is a similar idea. I wanted a picture at the top of my blog page a bit like this one
    http://www.jenniehk.com/blog/ or this one http://www.gildedbusiness.com/journal/

    Actually I’m just thinking about this a bit more and wondering if I need to create the site with a full width picture for a header then copy the the theme and change the header for each page so that every page has it’s own header.
    If that is the best way to proceed I guess I will have to get the site how I want it first and then create new themes for every page at the end of the site build. (Unless you can advise otherwise).

    When I see this page on your demo site http://acoda.com/dynamix/full-width/
    I presumed I could do this but am struggling to see how.

    I hope this all makes sense. Basically I want to be able to have different pictures across the top of each page – full width and I’d also like to have some pictures half way down the page full width too.

    Many thanks

    Karen

    Hi @karenrevell

    In order to set the page to full-width, you will need to set the page to “no sidebar” or set the default to full-width. For us to check on this further, you can send us your login credentials and also, kindly provide the page to which you want to have it set to full-width.

    Regards,

    Hi @karenrevell

    I failed to specify that the image on the full-width page is actually a background set as parallax.

    I have configured one for you as an example and it should be available here: http://karenrevell.com/you/

    Please check if this is how you want it configured.

    Thanks!

    Hi

    Thanks for this. It is exactly how I wanted it. Had been trying different things but just couldn’t see how to get it like that.

    Many thanks,

    Karen

    Glad to know that, @karenrevell
