A header is the area of your website that appears across the top of your site and appears throughout all of your pages.
The header may contain your site title, company logo and your site menu. 

Please note: it isn't possible to delete the header from your site.

      Please note that there is content above the upper Gridline below your header. Please move this content to the page, next click on the page and set the y axis on the bottom part of the page settings to 0.


      That would make the page minimized to the possible extent and stuck together with the header.

    I cannot make the header smaller. It is too large and is taking up my whole page. I was unable to find a setting for this.

      You can change the size of the Header by grabbing the handle you see when the header is selected. Look at this screenshot:



      Keep in mind you'll have to move elements in the header in order to be able to resize it. For instance, if the line of the header is touching the menu, you'll be able to resize the header only once you'll move up also the menu.


      Have a nice day,

      Please go to your editor, click the Header and use the Stretch Handle to reduce the height of the Header. If you have elements placed at the bottom of your Header, you will first need to drag these elements higher and then use the Header's stretch handle.


      If you are still unable to reduce the height of your header, please follow the instructions here.


      If the issue persits, please specify which one of your sites is related to this issue and provide us with screenshots exemplifying the issue so we could better understand and further assist. You can find step by step instructions here.

    Hi there!

    Like a lot of the posts on this thread, we too have an issue whereby our header can increase in size but not decrease.  Would you be able to have a look at our site and make the header area smaller - may it have something to do with the pictures on the far right and left sides of the screen?



    Many thanks

      Looking into your editor it appears you can decrease the size of your header further since it's already right on the last element in it.


      If you are encountering a specific issue on one of the pages, please provide us with a screen shot of the problem so we can take a closer look. For instructions on how to take a screenshot, please use this link.


      To upload the screenshot, simply click on the "Upload" button and follow the steps.


      Thank you for the patience and cooperation,

    My mobile page header is set at a height of 24000... There is nothing I can do to change this and I am in need of some assistance.

    Please Advise,

      Hi mbeuromotorssm,


      Thank you for contacting us. It appears that you had an empty text box located at 24,000 which was extending the header to that height.


      I've removed the text box and was able to then move the rest of your content directly below the desired header.

       I saved the changes to your site but did not publish the changes.

      Please review the changes made at your convenience and publish your site once again when you wish.


      Feel free to contact is once again should you require further assistance.

      All the best, Ellie

    I am unable to bring the Header to the top. I have animations that come down from the top and I have moved them down to the bottom, but they still cover the menu bar and make it un-clickable.

    • Dean Wix Team

      Replied by Dean July 10, 2014



      Looking into your editor I can see you have large image boxes covering the menu, for the menu to be clickable please make sure there are no elements (images/animations) covering it.


      Let us know if you need additional assistance.

    I'm tired to fight with my template. Whenever I change the word "HOME" to "WELCOME" in header after saving and publishing it returns back to "HOME". What should I do?

      To make the header smaller, drag the image at the right side down so that it is beneath the header line.

      Then, make your header smaller using the handle.

      Let us know if you need more help.

    I need to decrease my header size from height 400 down to 200 or even 300.  However I cannot seem to decrease it, only increase. I apologize if this seems redundant of a question. Thanks!

    Hi, is it possible to have different header depth on different pages in the same site? Editing my header depth effects all pages.
