    Hello ๐Ÿ™‚

    I hope I didn’t a mistake but I’ve just bought the Elegant theme because the nice hero header you shown in the “Life Style Magazine” preview which shows 3 latest posts, which happens to be the hero banner Bricks (1×2) in the theme options.

    I don’t know if I misunderstood but I thought that the banners could be set with the big picture as the latest posts and the other small ones as the latest posts from different categories. Did I assume something that can’t be done? ๐Ÿ™

    If I can set the banner as I requested…how exactly need to set up the Query settings? I’m sorry for this question but I’m pretty new in this and a step by step guide would be awesome.

    Thank you in advance for any help you can provide!

    So, can’t I have the big banner to the only for latest posts and the other two smaller to be for some selected categories?

    Because to be honest…that was the only reason why did I bought this theme ๐Ÿ™

    Is there a way to do something like this? please…

    Hello,

    Would you please kindly tell me what to do? I can’t see the tabs in the Hero Banner options as you said it should.

    Please.

    Ok, just as I checked today, once the code you gave me is added there are a few issues showed:

    The last post from the Hero Banner shows also in the blog list. Unlike as is supposed to do, meaning: it should hide that post in the list since it would be repetitive showing it in both sections (hero banner and blog post list).

    The Hero Banner shows also in the single post page, which ofc, is not what I need/want.

    So far that is what I have noticed, but I think there’s something wrong with the code you gave me since for instance is not showing the tabs to select the categories from the option panel.

    Would you please take a look to the website? you’ve got the credentials to log either in the wp panel that through FTP.

    Thank you very much for any help provided.

    Hello Jacob,

    Indeed the code is working now correctly! thank you.

    Unfortunately I think we didn’t understood each other about my request, it was maybe my fault so I really apologizes for this, also, I am willing to pay for this customization but I really need the small banners to display different categories/tags each.

    Let me explain it better:

    Big banner: Category named “Fashion”
    Top small banner: Category named “Life”
    Bottom small banner: Category named “Travel”.

    I am also attaching some images, the first one (called ‘herobanner_sample1’) is just as you kindly provided the code. The second one (called ‘herobanner_sample2) is how I actually need it.

    Please let me know how to proceed, below you can find more info.

    Thank you again for all your help provided, I know you always do you best to provide a great support and I’m grateful for this.

    Mary~

    Hello again.

    By the way, I’ve chosen 2 different categories to display in the small banners but it shows only one kind of them. Is that how is intended to work? if so…what’s the reason to be able to chose as many categories as you want if will only display one of them? ๐Ÿ™‚ (just informing you because maybe is a small bug?)

    Also, tried to choose one category and one tag but it gives me only a blank space. In any case, choosing tags is not what I really need because on the photo displays the name of the category (not the tag’s name) and is kinda useless…but well, just wanted to test.

    Hello Jacob.

    Exactly, that’s what I need. ๐Ÿ™‚

    At the start the hero banner was getting only one category and was separated in 3 bricks, so I asked to get different category for the bricks, I guess I missed the word “each” when I first posted my request ๐Ÿ™

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Ok, seems now the code is working as intended (haven’t full checked yet but at least the tabs are there). Would you please tell me what was wrong and which code you added?

    thank you

    Hello,

    The two small bricks shows the same category. If you check here the previous answers:

    #9829 and then #9840 you’ll have a the whole idea what I wanted for the two bricks, then there’s also the answer #9905 and #9910 where you guys actually fixed the code to make possible to select one category for each brick.

    Right now, the small bricks only allows to select categories for the 2 bricks together. Sure, I can also select 2,3 or even 4 categories but the problem will be that if the last posts will be for the same category they will show both, and that’s not what I needed it.

    Would you please kindly tell me how to make it work as I wanted?

    Thank you.
