Transparent Header

Transparent Header


Transparent Header allows you to easily create beautiful and attractive headers. Enabling this option will set your primary header background to transparent and pull the page content to the top. It will merge the primary header and the page content. That means your top part of the page content will be set as a background to the transparent header.

For example, if the page contains an image as a top section, it will be pulled up and set as a background image for the transparent header.


Transparent Header settings will be available in the customizer. From the WordPress dashboard navigate to Appearance > Customize > Layout > Header > Transparent Header. Below are the available options.

 Enable on Complete Website

Tick the checkbox for this option if you wish to display a transparent header on the entire website. When you enable this option, it offers the following exclusion rules. That means you can choose some pages and posts, where the transparent header can be disabled.

  • Disable on 404, Search & Archives?: This setting is generally not recommended on special pages such as archive, search, 404, etc. If you would like to disable the transparent header on these pages, tick the checkbox.
