Manage header layout

Your site template has a default header layout, however, there are numerous other header layout options.

To change header layouts, click on the preview of your current layout below "Header Layout" and select a new one.

Edit your logo

To edit your site's logo, simply click on the logo in the builder or hover over the logo and click "Edit Logo."

You will then be able to choose either an image or text logo.

For image logos, you can choose to upload an image you have as well as adjust its size.

If you don't have one yet, you can easily create a custom logo with LogoMakr by clicking "Try this" below the size slider.

If you'd rather use a text logo, choose the "Text" tab in the logo options. Enter the logo text and customize its font, size, style and color.

Add call-to-action button

A call-to-action button can be added to any header layout to open a pop-up to drive leads, open a Calendly pop-up, go to an external URL, a site page, a landing page, or jump to a section on the site page.

To add a call-to-action button to your site header, click the + icon in your header, then "Add Button."

Or, in the header settings, click "Add Button to Header."

Call-to-action buttons are powerful. Here's a few more resources on buttons and your click event options:

Remove call-to-action button

To remove your header's call-to-action button, hover over the button and click the trash icon.

Or, in the header settings, click "Remove Button from Header."

Styling your header

Within the header settings are styling settings that allow you to change your navigation fonts and colors as well as the header's height.

Header height and background color

In the header settings dock under the "Header" tab, you'll see the options to change both the header height and background color of your header.

When using the color picker, you can choose from your brand colors, a few recent colors, or click ADD next to "Recent Colors" to enter hex codes or select a different color/opacity for your header background.

Show when scrolling

To make sure visitors always have easy access to your site's primary navigation, you can set your header to travel with the page as the page scrolls.

Under the header's settings, toggle "Show when scrolling" to the on position. A custom scrolling header height and logo size can be set so that as visitors scroll, the header is visible, but not as large as it is at the top of your site.

Navigation font, color and size

For quick access to navigation settings, hover over your navigation and click Edit Navigation.

Under the "Navigation" tab in the header settings dock, you can adjust the font, font colors, and size of the navigation items.
