Header and Navigation Settings

Header Format

Header Style

You can choose between several header styles: Default, Centered, Centered Inline Logo, Slide In, or Fullscreen. By default, your logo will be aligned to the left and your menu will be aligned to the right. Changing this option to “Centered” will center both the logo and the menu, placing the logo on top. If you choose the “Centered Inline Logo” option then your logo and menu items will be added to the same line with your logo placed directly in the center. The “Slide In” style option creates a hamburger menu icon in the top right-hand corner of the page. When clicked that menu slides in from the right. And finally, if you choose the “Fullscreen” option you will again see a hambuger icon in the top right hand corner. This time when clicked however, a fullscreen overlay menu will appear.

Enable Vertical Navigation

The vertical navigation settings will change the orientation of our header and navigation bars. You can choose to place the header on the top, or on the side of your page. Enabling the Vertical Navigation setting will change your header to the vertical style, displaying your logo and menu to the left of the page.
