Adding a Mobile Header to Your Website

There are 2 ways to add a mobile header:

  • via header Layouts
  • in the Customizer
Creating a Mobile Header in Layouts

Layouts is a preferred way of creating a mobile header since it gives you flexibility and control over your elements. Creating a mobile header is similar to creating a standard header, except there are several features you should know about in order to use Layouts more efficiently.

Layouts Menu Shortcode

The Layouts: Menu shortcode includes an option to enable the mobile menu. Use it to transform your regular menu into a mobile menu on smaller resolutions automatically.

Hide Layout shortcodes on specific devices

In the settings of each Layout shortcode, you can find an option to hide it on a specific resolution.

You can also show/hide an entire row on a specific resolution. In the Row settings, go to the Custom Layouts tab.

Here’s the full list of available resolutions:

  • Desktop – larger than 1680px
  • Notebook – from 1168px to 1679px
  • Tablet – from 768px to 1167px
  • Mobile – lesser than 767px

In this way, you can create independent mobile headers by disabling certain rows on desktop and notebook devices, and enabling them on mobiles and tablets.

Adding a Mobile Header in the Customizer

Instead of Layouts, you can use the default mobile header in the Customizer. Enable it in the Mobile Header section in Appearance > Customize > Header.

Please note! The mobile header is visible only if you choose default header style in Appearance > Customize > Header.

This type of a mobile header lets you show/hide such elements as logo, search form, login link, and shopping cart. You can also use the Additional Info section, a text block where you can add information about your business, such as telephone number, open hours, etc.
