Menu type

In this step, you can change the position or appearance of the menu items. Types ClassicCentered, and BottomBoxed hamburger and Hamburger differ in the icon.

Menu style

The menu style sets the appearance of the page names in the menu. For example, menu items can be bordered, crossed out, have larger spaces, or behave differently when you hover the mouse. This setting cannot be made for the Pop-up and Tile with Pop-up menu types.

Content width

Use this setting to adjust the distance between the logo and the menu items in the navigation bar.

Sticky (fixed) menu

When the fixed menu is switched on, the navigation bar remains at the top even when the mouse is moved down the page.


This option turns on the line that separates the navigation bar from the rest of the page.


Navline & claims

This type of header is generally used on most template home pages. You can add up to three headings (Heading, Subheading and Heading above the title) as well as a button. The background can be changed for the navline and section.


In addition to the Background of the navline, you can also change the background of the header itself by clicking on Section background.

Change backgrounds

The recommended resolution for the header image is 1920 × 1280 px, and the file size should be around 600 kb. Larger image sizes could result in slower page loading and more data being transferred.

The change procedure is the same as for the navline (see above in the article).
