Headers

Header is represented by "header" tag and "header" id. It has different variations for size, color, background and etc which can be added by assigning the related helper class.

Please scroll down to see the manual for all available variations but if you are just looking for a specific class, we have summerized important ones in following table. They all should be added to the header tag unless a different tag is mentioned in description.

Class Description
.dark define header as an area with dark background Add this class if the header has a dark background of any kind ( image, color,...) . It will set a light color for contents inside the dark header
.sticky-light define sticky header as a area with light background
.sticky-dark define sticky header as a area with dark background
.trans header with transparent background
.semi-trans-light-percentage transparent header with a light overlay. e.g: .semi-trans-light-20
.semi-trans-dark-percentage transparent header with a light overlay. e.g: .semi-trans-dark-20
.fullwidth remove the container wrapper and make header fullwidth
.thick for ticker header
.thin for narrow header
.side-header create a vertical header instead of default horizontal one. It Should be added to the body tag
.sticky-header adds sticky header effect. It Should be added to the body tag

Default variation

Headers can be different in size, layout and background type and whetere or not it should be sticky. The basic header layout screenshot and markup is:

Header

Markup:

<header id="header"> 
<!-- -----Begin header main area-->
    <div class="head-main">
      <div class="container">
        <div class="logo-wrapper">
             <!-- -----Logo Markup-->
        </div>
        <ul id="primary-menu">
             <!-- -----Menu Markup-->
        </ul>
        <div class="header-icons">
            <!-- -----Icons Markup-->
        </div>
    </div>
</header>

Everything in .head-main is aligned to the right, except the logo wrapper. .header-icons is a wrapper that will be placed at the right side of the header and can contain related icons like search, humbergur menu and etc.

Color Variations

By default the header has a light background color. There is also a dark version available by adding the class .dark to header tag. The dark class gives a dark color to header background and also a light color to all elements inside it.

Header dark

The Markup should be as follow:

<header id="header" class="dark"> 
    <!-- -----Header Markup-->
</header>

Note: If the background of header is dark (by a background image, color , pattern or being transparent) you must add class .dark to header tag so the contents inside it get proper color.

Size Variations

There are three main different sizes available for header. Beside default size, two .thin and .thick classes can be assigned to header to make it narrower or taller.

Here is an screenshot of thick version with .dark class to make it more clear:

Header thick

Layout Variations

By default the header contents are wrapped inside a container, you can ommit this by adding class .fullwidth.

Background Variations

As we already saw, header can have light and dark background color but beside that there are three major transparency classes as well. .trans, .semi-trans-light-percentage and .semi-trans-dark-percentage. The main point is to make header background transparent so we can see the element behind it which is mostly a background image.

.trans is fully transparent and the other two classes are also transparent but with a light or dark overlay. The level of darkness or lightness overlay is controlled by the percentage part which is a number between 10 to 90.

For example header with .semi-trans-light-20 would look like this:

Header

And the markup would be as follow:

<header id="header" class="semi-trans-light-20"> 
    <!-- -----Header Markup-->
</header>

Sticky Variations

By adding class .sticky-header to the body tag, the header will be sticky and always visible to the user.

However the header would be non-sticky in mobile devices regardless of the class in order to achive a better user experience.

Sticky color variation

By default the sticky header color scheme would be same as the header itself but if you want to make it different, you can assign .sticky-light' or.sticky-dark' classes to it. For example if the header is dark but you want to make it light in sticky version, add .dark .sticky-light classes.

Here is the markup:

<header id="header" class="trans dark sticky-light"> 
    <!-- -----Header Markup-->
</header>

Default dark header : Header

Sticky light variation: Header

Header V2

Header V2 is a variation of the header which has two level, one with logo and the other with navigation menu. It is suitable for large number of menu items or more informative headers.

Header v2 Here is the markup:

<header id="header"> 
    <div class="head-main text-right hidden-sticky">
      <div class="container">
        <div class="logo-wrapper">
             <!--Logo wrapper markup-->
        </div>
        <div class="promotion">
             <!--Any slogan or information block for the right side-->
        </div>
      </div>
    </div>
    <div class="nav-row">
      <div class="container">
        <div class="visible-sticky">
          <div class="logo-wrapper">
            <!--Logo which is only visible in sticky mode-->
          </div>
        </div>
        <ul id="primary-menu">
            <!--Menu markup-->
        </ul>
        <div class="header-icons">
            <!--Any Icons for right side of second level-->
        </div>
      </div>
</div>
</header>

Side header

Side header

You can achieve this effect by adding "side-header" class to the body of the default version of the header. Note
You can't use it with header V2
