    I am updating an old website at https://tooleyspainting.com/

    I am using HTML5 Video Player for the header since it auto plays.

    (Note: I have been unable to create a header element because the Primary Nav bar goes above the video even though I choose below header, so I am using a hook instead.)

    The problems I’m having are as follows:

    1. When the video loads, it loads a really big image for a split second before going to correct size.
    2. Video has light grey borders which I would like removed
    3. Video touches the top of the secondary nav menu. I would like to move it down so there are borders top and bottom.

    Would appreciate any help.
    Many thanks!

    Hi there,

    can’t see how we can control the loading of the image.
    You can use the Header Element to move the Nav Below it you would need to:

    1. Set the Navigation location to Below Header.
    2. add this PHP Snippet:

    add_action( 'after_setup_theme','craig_move_navigation' );
    function craig_move_navigation() {
        remove_action( 'generate_after_header', 'generate_add_navigation_after_header', 5 );
        add_action( 'generate_after_header', 'generate_add_navigation_after_header', 15 );
    }

    Thank you David. Do you know how I can remove the borders or move the video down?

    Are we sure the borders aren’t a part of the video? I’m not seeing any CSS for them.

    To move it down, try this:

    .secondary-navigation {
        margin-bottom: 10px;
    }

    Thanks for your help Tom and David. I have contacted HTML5 Video Plugin support but have not heard back. Since it is probably their issue I will consider this topic closed on this forum but am just curious.

    Can you tell me please why I was unable to use the Header Element “out of the box”? I don’t mind adding the snippet but just wondering why. I thought it might be a plugin conflict so I deactivated everything but it didn’t make a difference. I have never had this problem before.

    Many thanks!

    Thats the expected behaviour of the Header Element. The ordering of Elements are like so:

    Site Header
    After Header (priority 5 ) -> Primary Navigation
    After Header (priority 10 ) -> Header Element

    So it always has required a little bit of code to move the Navigation below it.
