Setup and Configuration

↑ Back to top

This extension integrates with WordPress Customizer, giving you new settings in several existing sections.


↑ Back to top

Header layoutsf-headers

Choose a different preset header layout.

  • Default – How Storefront displays the header by default.
  • Expanded – Moves the secondary navigation and search bar above the logo/title/tag line.
  • Central – Aligns everything to the midline and works best when not using a secondary navigation, potentially hiding the search bar.
  • Inline – Removes the secondary navigation/search box and displays the site title, main navigation and cart link in a single horizontal line.

Sticky header

Gives you the option to lock the entire header or only the navigation to the top of the page as the user scrolls. Be aware that sticky navigation only works in conjunction with ‘Expanded’ or ‘Compact’ header layouts.

Background style

Choose a solid fill background (default), a gradient background or transparent background. If you select gradient, the gradient is automatically generated based on the button background color setting.

Button Radius

Specify the border radius of your buttons. Choose squared (default), small or full. Small will result in slightly rounded corners, full will result in fully rounded buttons.
