    Hello, I was wondering how can I decrease the length of the header.  I need to shorten the strip as it is taken over too much of the space of the whole layout. I looked everywhere and cant find how. Thanks

      The length of the header will always occupy the whole width of the page. You can set the header to white if you like and add an element with the color you like with the desired width.

      Best, Ritti

      Please elaborate on your question. Are you referring to the text box in your header or the menu bar itself?

      Hi, I have a main title one box on the left in the the header, and I have another box with titles that open other pages(portfolio, about, video, contact)on the right and in the header, but when I click or double click on this box the drop down menu doesn't include an 'edit text' option.

      The menu's buttons' names are dictated by the names of your pages. If you would like to change a name, please click on Pages, then on the gear next to the page whose name you would like to change, and in the new window you will have a page name text box.


      If you need additional assistance, please let us know.

    I need help about header, please!

    I made a website that should be a pattern, but the next day the entire site has slipped and disrupted the settings. There is a large space above the header and we can not manage to get it back! It makes me very disappointed. How can I show to anyone???

    Can someone help me, PLEASE??? I'm very nervous about it!

      This is a picture of the screen. Contact should бе standing on the bottom of the page, bat it is not there. The space above can be stuck to decrease also in the area of the footer. Stars and webmaster login can not move. What should I do?

      The header is designed to fit all items in it and therefore will not shrink in a way that won't fit all the items you put in it. In other words, the header’s bottom edge will go up until the bottom of its lowest item but not further. To learn more about the header, click here.


      I can see that in your site what makes the header not shrink is  the top strip line. I was able to resolve it by moving the line, bringing the header up, and placing the line back in place.

      Please go into your editor and see if you're happy with the results. If so, click publish.


      As to your footer, I could see it is shrunk to a very small height.

      A footer is the area of your website that appears across the bottom of your site and appears throughout all of your pages. To learn more about the footer click What is a footer?.


      Putting items in the footer doesn’t mean just putting them under the bottom gridlines, you need to put them inside the item "footer".


      When your footer is very narrow, it cannot contain any items.

      Please make your footer bigger by clicking on it, and dragging the "stretch handle" down.

      See screenshot below.


      Once your footer is big enough, make sure the items you want to put in it are set to “show on all pages” and then simply drag them into the footer.

      After you do so, the footer area would look the same on all pages: right in the bottom of the page.

      Should you have any further questions, please let us know! Thanks, Customer Solutions

      Thank you, thank a lot of Srav for help. I have one more problem with the contact on the bottom side; takes a lot of space and can  not reduce the space between the footer and the page. I can not move webmaster login.

      I checked your site and I saw there is an active contact form on the top right corner of your site.

      I want that contact stay right at the bottom of the page, where it is now, in the website area, but I want to be visible above the black Wix line. Size can stay the same. I've noticed that I can not click on the button Poruka in the menu in the header and the picture next to it.

      From our end it works just fine now, before it malfunctioned, it was white, it was at the bottom and could not be clicked, now it is at the side and it works as it should. If it stays this way you can keep it.

    • Ira Bel Wix Team

      Yes, you can do this by clicking on the header and checking the option "fixed position".

    • Ilia Wix Team

      Replied by Ilia May 31, 2014



      Setting your header or footer to a fixed position will cause it to scroll with your Wix site. As you scroll down the page, the header or footer will scroll with you.


      To set your header or footer to a fixed position, click the header or footer to select it > click Settings > check the box next to Fixed Position > click Preview to view your header or footer in a fixed position. 


      Only elements set to Show On All Pages will appear in a fixed header or footer. For instructions on how to set an element to show on all pages, click here.


      Watch the video tutorial below to learn more about this feature.

    So, it seems that the header is a recurring issue, because I too, am having problems with it. I just want to adjust it to make it smaller. I can make it as large as I want, but when it comes to shrinking it, I get nothing. What is going on with the stupid thing?

    • Or Wix Team

      Replied by Or May 29, 2014



      Please note that your site's header can only be as small as the space the items in it take up.


      Also note that this element is part of the header:


      You can either shrink it or move it to the page itself. 

      Kind regards, Or - Wix Support Team.

    Hi Wix,

    I'm having trouble with the header size on my site, sleepwhenyouredead. 

    When I edit it, it expands, and there aren't any handles to "shrink" the header back "up" towards the top of the page. Now there's a big space in the header. 

    Please help!

    Hello, Wix Team!

    I am having the same issue as the others.

    I am not able to get my title name and graphic to group together and, I cannot make my header shorten.  So, there is a big gap.

    I'd like to be able to have the tree and, family name together, in the same spot on every page.  I tried doing Crtl +M but, I was not successful in finding a hidden item. 

    Instead, the family name scrolls along with everything else on the screen.  

    With the exception of the slideshow, I would like for everything on the home page to be static.

    Your homepage says that I am: BFACharlottecom.

    Can you help me?

    I appreciate your help.

    The 3 headers are:

    1)Looking for an External

    2)Transport Manager

    3) empty text

    I suggest deleting the text box and add the text again.

    Best, Ritti
