Add or remove content from each zone in order to show or remove specific elements from your header.

  1. Main menu – handles the standard desktop header.
  2. Main menu sticky – handles the desktop sticky header section. If you do not need a sticky header, simply delete all content from this zone.
  3. Mobile menu- handles the standard mobile header.
  4. Mobile menu sticky – handles the mobile sticky header section. If you do not need a sticky header for mobiles, simply delete all content from this zone.

If you don’t want not want the menus to become sticky while the visitor is scrolling, you just have to switch the On/Off buttons for Main menu and also for Mobile Menu.

What if you want to have different headers on different parts of your site?

In this case, you can go to a category page for example and edit the Header Template (by following the steps from above). Do not assign the header template as Global and you’re done. The chosen category page has a different header than the homepage. You can do this for any page or single post.
