First off: I love the theme – it’s a brilliant product.
However, I’m having trouble setting up a fairly easy (if I were to code it from scratch) header design that would contain a logo on the left, centered navigation and some additional content on the right (a text widget).
The question is: do I have to completely wipe the default GeneratePress and code this from scratch (which I wouldn’t like to do because I’d strip my client from native theme functionality and Customizer) or are there some steps to create a “base” for such design and add some of the additional content with hooks + extra CSS styling?
Depending on the design / logo widths / nav length etc. it will require a little CSS to tune that layout.
Alternative options when using the Navigation as Header or the Mobile Header is GP Hooks to insert other content. Two hooks are: inside_navigation and inside_mobile_header. Will require some Flex CSS for re-ordering.
