Page Headers or page Sections?

A GeneratePress Page Header is a fancy header section that you can build and then add to the very top of any page, post, archive or blog listing page etc.

Page headers look like page sections but page headers and page sections are two different things. However, you can add a page header to a page or post you’ve built with GeneratePress sections if you wish, the choice is yours.

Look for the Page Header tab in the Layout section, it’s under the main WordPress post editor section.

You can use page headers on the same page as page sections in Generate Press
