    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,

      All the best, Dean - Wix Team

    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.

      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.

      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.

    I'm also having trouble with my header. I made all of the header contents smaller, so I don't understand why I still can't shorten the height of my header. I can make it as big as I want, but not smaller. It's wayyyy too big and takes up the entire page each time you click on a new menu.

    So I have this big gap between my header and page and I can't seem to get rid of it. I can fix it mostly in the editor but when I save and publish my site, it always comes right back. What am I doing wrong? I tried changing the Y axis to 0 but it just changes back once I put the 0 in. Please help!!
