How can I add the "title" (banner) / title area to an existing page?

Occasional Contributor

Hi, I created a page by copying another page.  The existing page did not have the title bar with the background image. Is there a way to add this web part?  I do not see it listed under the web parts.

@Ozlem you can save a page (normal or news) as a template and then select that template when you create the new page. It will have all the elements in the original page.

Hi there, that is not what the original poster was asking about. In fact, it is the exact opposite of what he was asking about.

He has an existing page that is missing the necessary Title area. Some pages were created by the system (e.g. the home page) and probably should not be deleted and replaced with a new page that is created from the newer templates. The o.p. needs to hand-insert the missing feature into an older page.

I also have this problem. And it seems impossible to do it without risking the home page becoming unavailable after deleting the home page for his Sharepoint site (I already tried this and had to restore the page).

@AMDphreak "that is not what the original poster was asking about. In fact, it is the exact opposite of what he was asking about." Wow, harsh. I've never experienced that so can't help. Maybe someone else can.

@Ozlem Assuming that you are talking about a modern page, you can edit the Title Region and select a layout that includes an image and title as in the attached image.

@Susan Hanley - that only works if you have a title region on the page to edit. That begs the question of how to add the Title Region in the first place.

@Susan Hanley @RobElliott @Mike Williams @Ozlem - I'm also having this same issue. A page was created (owner no longer working at the org) and it has no "Title Region" on the page to edit. The page is integrated heavily into navigation throughout the site, but is not consistent with other pages of similar content and importance, so I need to change its appearance to match others. How do I add that "Title Region" to the existing page above the content sections?

Had the same problem. You may have copied your homepage (as I did), and it seems you cannot add a title area for that, see  here.

@Ozlem @DayanBoyce @Mike Williams ,

 

I think you have copied the "Home" page of site to create a new page as mentioned by @jens-haley similar to the steps mentioned in this article: SharePoint Online: Create a blank page without header & title 

 

In that case, page will not have any header and title. To bring back the header and title settings, you can use below PnP PowerShell:  

 

Connect-PnPOnline -Url https://tenant.sharepoint.com/sites/siteName -UseWebLogin
Set-PnPClientSidePage -Identity "MyPage.aspx" -LayoutType "Article"

If you are using latest version of PnP PowerShell, you can use below commands: 

 

Connect-PnPOnline -Url https://tenant.sharepoint.com/sites/siteName -UseWebLogin
Set-PnPPage -Identity "MyPage" -LayoutType "Article"

The first command doesn't seem to exist for me, I also tried it in a PS in admin mode, but get the following error:

Connect-PnPOnline : The term 'Connect-PnPOnline' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or
operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try
again.

Is that cmdlet to be installed?

Thanks

@jens-haley You have to first install the PnP PowerShell module. Check below articles for more information:
