  • 3 Header types (Large banner, Banner [default], Title only)
  • New pages follows previous page header type and background image
  • Custom background image and adjust for readability
  • Multi-line text with differing formats
  • Images (and hacked alignment)


  • Only 3 header types
  • Title only header always has a white background
  • Titles in header are very large with large white space
  • New pages only take header type and background image
  • No vertical grouping or alignment (always aligns to top)


  • There's no correct size for the header or the dimensions for the page header background image so you should always try to upload the highest quality image that you have
  • The page background image position is centered horizontally and in the middle vertically, so you want to take this into consideration when selecting and cropping your image
