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.

    I am having trouble with my header. It allows me to drag it lower. But it will not allow me to resize it going up. Therefore, everytime I bring the header lower it is now permanently fixed at that position.

      Could you please specify in which one of your sites you are having this issue?

    Is it possible to fix the page? Now it disappears under the header when you scroll down. I would like the page to stay in place, but can't find the tool that helps me to do so.

      Hi wleusden,


      I see that the header on your site 'eetdates' is currently set to a fixed position. This causes the page to scroll under the header when scrolling down.


      To change this setting, please click the header to select it and uncheck the box next to "Fixed Position".


      If you need any further assistance, please let us know.

      - Regards, Carley

    I'm having the same problem as others…header is taking up too much space and dragging the handle won't let it go past a certain point.  I'm guessing I have an element in the way, but I don't know what it is or where it is.   Wix, can you help me with this?

    How do I edit the text in my header? I'm unable to select the text or get a bounding box around it.

    • Daniel Wix Team

      Replied by Daniel May 3, 2014



      This is because your text is covered by your header. To fix this, click on your header and click on the 'Move backwards' button in the menu that opens. Keep clicking on it until you can select your text and edit it.

      Please note that this text isn't in your header, it is merely behind it. To place it in your header, you need to set it to appear on all pages. To do so, click on it and check the 'Show on all pages' box and drag it to your header.

    It would be useful for the purpose of landing pages for the header to be "disabled" on not shown on selected pages.  This would be easier than setting each header item/component as "show on current page" for each and every page on a website.  Is this possible?

    I have discovered an issue with fixing the header in position and the drop down menu buttons not working if you start to scroll down. The drop down menu buttons work so long as the page is scrolled all the way to the top, as soon as you start to scroll down, the buttons become disabled. 

    Troubleshooting the issue I realized it is somehow connected to the Fix header in position option. I disabled the fix header and the buttons work if I scroll up or down. (the buttons obviously only work if they are visible on the screen either way)

    Can you help?

      I have tested your site with the fixed header on Chrome and Firefox and did not experience any issue with the dropdown menu.

    I have a header, footer and side bars created by an external designer and I would like to add them to replace the existing ones.
    I am using the 'Fly Fishing' template.  How do I do this please?

      Unless they are images, in which case you can simple add them as image and cover the space you wish - this isn't possible. Only elements designed in the editor can show up on your site (or otherwise be embedded using the HTML app. An answer to this topic can be found in What is the HTML App?)
