Motion Effects

  1. Sticky: Click Top to choose to stick the header to the top. Other options include Bottom or None.
  2. Sticky On: Choose which devices to stick the header, including Desktop, Tablet, and Mobile.
  3. Offset: Pushes the sticky element up or down by pixels.
  4. Effects Offset: Set the number of pixels scrolled before the header effects take place.

Note: The Offset Effects options only work when Custom CSS is applied.

Custom CSS

Add your own custom CSS here. Below is an example of CSS that changes the header’s background color, transparency, and height, with an easing animation effect. 

selector.elementor-sticky--effects{ background-color: rgba(133,130,255,0.5) !important }

selector{ transition: background-color 2s ease !important; }

selector.elementor-sticky--effects >.elementor-container{ min-height: 80px; }

selector > .elementor-container{ transition: min-height 1s ease !important; }
