Tips for Customizing Your Sticky Header

While the steps above guide you through creating a basic Blur Sticky Header with Astra Pro, there’s plenty of room for customization to make your sticky header truly unique. Here are some tips to help you personalize your sticky header:

  • Choose Colors Wisely
    The colors of your sticky header should align with your website’s overall color scheme. Consistency in color scheme enhances your website’s professional look and feel.
  • Adjust Opacity for Blur Effect
    The blur effect’s visibility depends on the background color opacity. Experiment with different opacity levels to achieve the desired blur effect.
  • Select an Appropriate Logo
    If you choose to use a different logo for the sticky header, ensure it’s clear and visible against the background color and blur effect.
  • Consider User Experience
    Always keep user experience in mind when customizing your sticky header. It should enhance navigation, not distract or confuse your visitors.

Common Issues

  1. Sticky Header Not Displaying
    Ensure that the Sticky Header option is enabled in the Astra dashboard. Also, check that you’ve selected the correct header to stick in the Sticky Header options.
  2. Blur Effect Not Visible
    The blur effect depends on the background color opacity. Make sure you’ve adjusted the opacity correctly under the Sticky Header Options in the design tab of the primary header.
  3. Sticky Header Not Visible on Mobile Devices
    In the Sticky Header preferences, ensure that the sticky header is enabled for mobile devices.
