Theme Settings

Change the theme settings to set Page Title Image Style or Page Title Image Width. 

Page Title Image Style: the two design choices are transparent or solid. Default

  1. Go to the Express toolbar and select Design.
  2. Click on the Configure button in the Active Theme (this is the first theme that appears in the list).
  3. Expand the Page Title Image section, under the Page Title Image Style drop-down, select solid or transparent (default). The theme that you're using will determine whether the solid style background color is black or white.
  4. Some themes also have the option to set the Page Title Image Width to either wide or boxed. The effect is more dramatic when the theme layout option is also set to wide.
