    Hi folks,

    Great theme! Thanks for all your work on this. A quick question.

    I’m looking to use an Elementor-built header while retaining the hooks/element infrastructure of GP (so that I can insert Google Analytics tags using a hook in the header, for example).

    I’ve been able to achieve this by creating an “empty” header hook where I select the “Disable Site Header” checkbox and leave everything else blank. This takes away the GP header. I then create another element (or hook, can’t remember) to insert the Elementor header shortcode.

    Is this the best way to do this or is there some other method I should be using that gives me more flexibility?

    Thanks!

    Hi there,

    That sounds like the correct method.

    Let us know if you run into any specific issue πŸ™‚

    Ok. It just seemed weird to create a “blank” hook just to be able to check that “Disable Site Header” box but I suppose it works and based on what you said, it doesn’t seem like there is a better/more efficient way of doing this.

    Thanks Leo!

    You could also disable the default header with this snippet:

    It’s essentially the same thing.

    Is one method better than the other in terms of website performance or flexibility?

    It looks like the method you referenced requires a plugin, which might slow things down a tad?

    If you are already using a child theme then you can use child theme’s function.php

    The difference should be minimal πŸ™‚

    You can test out both and run your site through speed test.
