Hey mate great vid – might sound like a dumb question but how do I change the other header images it seems to only allow me to change the main page image and doesn't give me an option to change the others? says:

I want to thank you for this video. It has been a big help. I am following what you have here to build my new fitness and health site. I am doing well with it, I must say. However, For whatever reason, I am not sure as for why I don't have the Theme Options on my custom page for WordPress to create those individual pages for the home page. The ones that slide up and down. The Theme Options Tab should be between the Static Front Page tab and the Additional CSS tab. However, it is not there at all. Would you have any idea as what I need to do? By the way, The Unemployed Genius is a different site I own. It's not the one I am working on with Twenty Seventeen. As of now, I have three pages and one post. I also loaded the Feature images on those three pages as you had shown in your video. This is how I noticed there wasn't a Theme options tab. I was on my way to doing the page line up with the Theme options, and there was none! Hmmm.
