Perfect! Thank you – both are now working as I wanted.
Thanks Noda. The two pages are:
https://gcjourneys.com/ – home page where I want the slider but no blog posts (as it is currently working).
https://gcjourneys.com/photo-journals/ – the blog page where I’d prefer to not show the slider (currently shows the slider).
Related question: I have a second blog page at https://gcjourneys.com/travel-tips/ where I want to list only posts with the category “Travel tips”. The first blog page (/photo-journals) can be filtered by category with the Home Page Post Options setting, but I assume the second blog page will need some CSS code to do that. Let me know if I should post a separate thread for this. FYI for this page I want posts in reverse chronological order and no slider, as it is currently working.
Thanks again for all your help. I imagine it can be frustrating dealing with newbies! I’ve been using Joomla for many years but this is my first WordPress effort.

Thanks for pointing that out. I wasn’t aware that documentation for wordpress.com doesn’t apply to WordPress in general.
It turns out that my issue with the Chronological Posts plug-in not working was because I had not designated the Posts page in Homepage Settings. Once I did that it showed all the posts in chronological order.
The downside is that it also now shows the Featured Slider on the posts page, which I would prefer to show only on the home page.
Thanks again for all your assistance.
Okay, thanks Noda.
FYI, I got the 2nd and 3rd solutions from https://en.support.wordpress.com/show-your-posts-in-chronological-order/
Thanks Noda. It appears that something in the Travelify theme is blocking any attempt to set chronological order. I tried three different recommended solutions, and none of them worked:
– the Chronological Posts plug-in,
– adding a short code of [display-posts order=”ASC”] to the blog page,
– setting the URL of each post to the y/m/d format and adding ?order=asc.
Is there any way to nullify whatever it is in Travelify that seems to have effectively hard-coded the reverse chronology?

I spoke too soon. Did some more testing last night and found that the image is not responsive – it doesn’t resize on different devices. I’m now giving up on the image behind the logo concept. I’ll start a new thread for a related request.December 21, 2018 at 7:51 pm in reply to: How to place the Header Image behind the Header Logo? #201541
Please note that I’ve changed the URL of the site to https://gcjourneys.com.
I’ve decided that I don’t need to have the random images behind the logo, so I’m going to stick with the CSS you suggested and have just one static image. I may change it manually from time to time. I fixed the white-space problem by changing the image size to 1018 by 198 – apparently that’s the size of the logo area.
Thanks for your help on this. I’m marking it resolved.

Thanks for the response Noda. I used the standard Header Image feature. See attached screenshots.
I want to have several different header images so that each time the page is loaded a randomly selected different logo background will appear. The standard Header Image feature already provides the randomized selection of one of the images, but it appears below the logo instead of behind it. I’m new to WordPress but I’ve done this with Joomla themes before, so I assumed that’s what the Header Image feature was intended for in WordPress as well.
Your suggestion works to place a single static image behind the logo, except that for some reason it leaves a white right margin on every page except the home page. I’d prefer to get the randomized background header images working if possible, but I could live with the static image if we could fix that white margin issue.

Thanks for the quick response, but the project wasn’t ready for external viewing at the time. It’s still being set up but you can see it at greenhillstravels.com.
Is the Header Image supposed to be behind the logo instead of below it? If that can’t be done I’ll just delete the header images.
I also have another issue: the Featured Slider was working fine until I installed the NextGEN gallery manager plugin. It then stopped, showing only the first slider image. To confirm that NextGEN is causing the problem I deactivated it, and the slider started working again. I’ll post this also on NextGEN’s forum but any suggestions you have would be appreciated.
