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.

      Edit your site, drag the menu upwards, once done drag the header upwards. Worked for us just fine.

    Also looking for help to reduce header size.  I do not see any boxes or other empty elements in my header that is forcing such a tall header.  I have scheduled a support call, but the earliest is 5 days away!  Can I get help prior to that?

      Please note that reducing the header is possible only if it doesn't conflict with another component, in your case- the gray srtip.

       

      Please make sure to move it upwards in order to shorten your header's height.

    I've tried almost all the different ways mentioned in order to decrease the size of the header, but nothing works. I can't figure out the problem and it's way too big for my page layout. I tried removing elements from the header and even placing everything to the top so that I could use the bar to minimize the size, but nothing works. Please help.

      We have visited your website's editor. You have a menu, drag it down, There is a box behind it, it is on the header so the header cannot be reduced in size, remove it or drag it up higher on the header, you will then be able to reduce it.

      Ohh, I didn't even notice there was a box in the header. This really helps, thank you!

      Hi, 

       

      If you want to make your header smaller, please place all the elements you have in the header in the top part of the header so you will be able to use the stretch handle. 

       

      You can find further information here What is a header?

       

      Cheers

      Is it possible to speak with someone directly? It actually is not the header, so I am unsure of what is going on with the top portion of the Sohn Fine Art website. I would really love someone's help. Thank you.

      Hey, 

      I am sorry you are experiencing difficulties. 
       

      Please keep in mind - Your site consists of 3 parts:

      1. Header-  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. 


       

      2. Pages- Your pages contain all  of the content within your site and you may have many. You can layer different elements by clicking the 'Bring forward' or 'Send backward'  icons in the pop-up that appears when clicking an element.

      3. Footer - A Footer is the area of your website that appears across the bottom of your site and appears throughout all of your pages.

      Please make sure to place your elements within the containers. 

      Then, please click on the page element and change the 'Y' parameter to 0:

       

      You can reach us by telephone in a number of ways:
       
      1) You can select a time to speak to an agent based on our availability and call volume by visiting this link.

       In order to meet the needs of our rapidly growing Wix community and to continue to deliver the personal and professional service you've come to expect from us, we now offer a scheduled call back.

    I am not able to reduce the height of the header. I try clicking on the yellow line and pulling it upwards, but can't go beyond a certain point.

      Hey,

       

      To achieve this result you will first need to drag all the items that are placed in your Header higher, then click the Header and drag the Stretch Handle upwards.

      Hi,

      I can see that your header is pretty small and only contains your menu:

      I'm afraid I didn't fully understand what it is you are experiencing.

      Can you please elaborate on the subject so we can better understand and help?

       

      Please provide us with a screen shot of the problem. 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.
       

       

      Awaiting your reply.

    Hi, 

    When I published my site, the header fills up the entire page, even though that is not its margins,  meaning I have a page of header and then have to scroll down to see the main page, any ideas?

     

    Many thanks.

    I would like to delete the header and footer completely, Is it possible?

    • ariadned Wix Team

      Replied by ariadned February 14, 2014

      Hi tomwebe4,

      Please note that it isn't possible to delete the header. 

      It's also not possible to delete the footer, you can however make the footer transparent. Simply click on the footer -> in the Footer settings -> Change Style -> Edit style -> change skin - None

       
      After that, shift elements on the footer to place them where you need them to be or delete them. 
       
      Kind regards,

      Hey,

       

      I have fixed that for you, however please note that this was just a styling issue and basically the way it looked before I add a border to your page layout design is just the default layout for a site.

       

      Please let us know should you require further assistance.

       

       

      All the best, Dean - Wix Team
