WP Header Images


WP Header Images is a great plugin to implement custom header images for each page. You can set images easily and later can manage CSS from your theme.
WP Header Images is a WordPress plugin which helps you to choose a unique image for each menu page. Normally a menu item can be either page, post, category, product or even just a link. These menu items can be managed from WordPress Admin > Appearance > Menus.
WooCommerce categories can have unique header images by using this plugin. It was a difficult thing to manage different slideshow before, most of the times you have to be restricted for banner area for only home page. And that home banners cannot be used for all pages. By this plugin you can use unique header images for each WooCommerce category and product pages too.

Yes, it is compatible with all WordPress themes which are developed according to the WordPress theme development standards.

I purchased this plugin to enable me to change the header images for the categories. After I uploaded I was not too sure how to get it to do exactly what I needed it to do. I therefore sent a message through and had a response straight away with regards to support via skype. I connected via skype to Fahad Mahmood and he straight away set it up exactly how I wanted it to work. Not only did he do this he wen above and beyond and also noticed a couple of areas that my site could be approved on and implemented this. Great plugin and even better support - 5*

After I installed/activated it, most of my widgets were removed from sidebars and left sidebar was rest to the default black background. Ugh. Lots of time wasted.

I had an issue with my woocommerce header being unresponsive so I went researching for plugins. I came across "WP Header Images" which looked like it might be the answer but wasn't sure. I them read the reviews for the plugin and took note of all of the amazing comments for about a man named Fahad who was the developer. So I sent him an email for which he replied almost instantly assuring me that he could help me. Fahad and I Skyped a day later and he resolved my issue promptly and professionally. I am glad that there are people like Fahad in this world that stand by their products and offer amazing and professional support. BTW - Fahad never asked for compensation nor did he ask that I write this review. Thanks Fahad 🙂

Works perfectly for my site - exactly what I am looking for, being able to customize specific header images across all pages. Also, allows you to place the header above or below the navbar depending on where you place the code. The only issue I had involved Jetpack mobile view and Fahad couldn't have done more to ensure everything was resolved. Works a charm.
