3. Header Image: a static full-width image
By default, this theme is using the Rotator option.

Add Rotator to Any Page
A rotator is a series of images, usually between three and six, that rotate as a slideshow. You can either add a new rotator or edit the existing home rotator. To do this go to MEDIA > Rotators > ADD A NEW ROTATOR
If you are creating a new rotator, name your rotator and choose the transition time, which is the amount of time it will stay on each slide before switching to the next slide. You can then assign the new rotator to a page, or you can leave this empty and add it to a page later.
In the below image, the rotator that is being edited would be assigned to the INDEX page (home page).
Each step 1-5 correlates with 1-5 in the image below.
1. Enter in the first image or video you would like to appear on your rotator. Each slider requires a Image/Video and the image/video must be already uploaded to your Media Module.
2. If you have a page/event/sermon/etc. that this slide is about, you can select that page to autofill all the information in step three. This step is optional and you can instead just fill in the information manually in step three.
3. Give each slide a title, caption, and link (if it's not already filled in from step two). A title is important and the caption is optional and will be shown on top of the photo.
The link is where the person will be taken if they click on the slide. Click "Open link in new window" if you want the user to be taken to a new window when they click on the slide.
4. If you publish the slide it will immediately be shown on any page that implements this rotator. You can also choose to publish slides at a later date by filling in "Schedule a publish status change". This option is useful if you are currently using the rotator, but do not want a certain slide to show up until a later date.
5. Save your slide! Follow steps 1-4 for all additional slides you would like to add to your rotator.
If you wish to add the rotator to a page that you did not add in the beginning then click to that page and add the rotator in the field "Rotator".
Note: If there is a Header Image in use on a page then it will not show up if a rotator is assigned.
