Insert image in header

I would like to add an image to my header for all pages. How do I do it? What should I pay attention to regarding page speed and response?

Thank you very much for your support.

Hello Ralf,

Thanks for writing in!

To accomplish what you have in mind, please do this:

  • Go to X > Global Blocks and create the header section with your text and banner image in it.
  • And then in your child theme’s functions.php file, add the following php code:
// For the header
function custom_image_header() {
	echo do_shortcode('[cs_gb id=123]');
add_action('x_before_view_global__slider-below', 'custom_image_header');

Just make sure that you add the correct global block shortcode. I added a temporary code: [cs_gb id=123]

We would loved to know if this has work for you. Thank you.

Thank you very much for the quick answer!
Sorry, I am not a professional. How do I get into the x > global blocks and how do I upload the picture?

A detailed instruction would be very helpful for me.

Thank you very much !

Hello @ratgeber,

Please go back to your WP Dashboard and you will find the X > Global Blocks link.

You can insert the image as a section background image which you will create as a global block. If you are not familiar with section and the Cornerstone builder, please check this out:

Hope this helps.

Okay, as you can see, I don’t have this menu.
Thank you very much !
