Create or Edit your Header in WordPress with Elementor

Last Update: January 14, 2024

What is a header?

Headers appear at the top of most web pages. In general, sites have one standard header used for every page on the site – although some pages on a site may not have a header or need a custom header.

The Header Site Part section of the Theme Builder lists all Headers you’ve created, if any, giving quick access to add, edit, or delete any header.

If no headers have been created yet, you will be prompted to create one. Click Add New in the upper right corner of the Header Site Part screen.

Once you’ve created at least one header, you will be able to manage them here.

Edit An Existing Header’s Conditions

  1. Click the Edit Conditions link in the bottom left corner of the Header you wish to edit. This will directly open the Display Conditions editor for that Header.

Note: The Dot Display in the upper left corner of the Headerindicates which site parts are live (has Display Conditions assigned to it), and which are merely drafts (no Display Conditions have been assigned). A Green Dot indicates a live Header, while a Gray Dot indicates a draft Header. 

Note: The Instances label in the lower left corner of the Header displays the specific instances in which this template is being used on the site.
