    Hi,

    Please, my blog’s header is not showing on single posts on my new blog. How can I enable this?

    Hi there,

    The header and menu are both showing, just hidden because of the colors you’ve chosen:

    You would want to set the colors that can be seen in the customizer.

    When you are using a merged header element like the front page, you can use the custom navigation colors within the header element to set specific colors that works for the page hero:

    Hi Leo,

    Honestly, I’ve gone through the resources you shared but I’m still confused. The whole guides seems to be suggesting having a different header color via the header element. For example, making the header color “black” will ensure it comes visible on single posts, while also being the same back on the homepage.

    However, I want to maintain the header color on my homepage now, but have a different color for single posts, like a darker color that will bring out the menu. How can I achieve that?

    Can I also use a different header style for my single posts other than the one on homepage? Or must everything be the same thing?

    – When you are using a merged header element like the home page, the navigation colors should be set using the custom navigation color under the site header tab in the header element:
    https://docs.generatepress.com/article/header-element-overview/#navigation-colors

    – On pages without a merged header element like single posts, the navigation color should be set in the customizer.

    Hi Leo,

    All these things you’re saying do not still make any sense to me as I’m still not able to make it right.

    Can you help me with this instead?

    I just want the navigation menu background color to be black in single posts so that the menu titles can show.

    I also want my logo to be left-aligned in single posts, I want it to be on the navigation menu instead of being on its own.

    Can you help me with this as I can’t seem to get it right on my own?

    We cannot make modifications on your site for you so you will have to try to go into the settings I’ve mentioned and make it work.

    I just want the navigation menu background color to be black in single posts so that the menu titles can show.

    Then change the menu background color to be black in the customizer (Colors > Primary Navigation).

    Your current settings in the customizer should be the setting for the merged header element.

    I also want my logo to be left-aligned in single posts, I want it to be on the navigation menu instead of being on its own.

    Looks like this is a separate question so please open a new topic for this.

    Thanks!

    Then change the menu background color to be black in the customizer (Colors > Primary Navigation).

    I’ve tried that, but it changed the color on both the homepage and single posts. I want the homepage to remain as it is right now, the navigation menu, color, and everything. I only want to make this change in the single posts, is this to hard to understand?

    We cannot make modifications on your site for you so you will have to try to go into the settings I’ve mentioned and made it work.

    I’ve applied all the settings you suggested here and it didn’t give me what I want. Maybe you should find a better way to explain things to me.

    Alternatively, can I have the same header design for both homepage and single posts? Here’s the homepage for theme demo I’m using: https://prnt.sc/tnbykv

    And this is the single posts header/menu demo: https://prnt.sc/tnbzhg

    How can I make mine like this since I can’t get the other option I want?

    I tried to explain this in different ways above already, the navigation colors you want for the home page (with the merged page hero) should be set in the navigation colors in the header element:
    https://docs.generatepress.com/article/header-element-overview/#navigation-colors

    So that you can use the customizer settings (Colors > Primary Navigation) to set the colors when there is no merged header element used like your single posts.

    Your current menu color settings in the customizer should be the setting for the merged header element.

    Can you please do exactly what is suggested here and we can go from there?

    Bro, I’m tired of all these. Perhaps I should get another theme as you’re not really been helpful to me right now.

    I told you I’ve tried what you said and it didn’t work for me. Here are the settings on the header element: https://prnt.sc/tndd19. I want to have a colorless background for the navigation menu on the homepage as you can see here: https://prnt.sc/tndf4h.

    But after making the settings, I now went to the customizer to set the background menu color for single posts as you suggested. But after making the changes, the same color also appeared on the homepage: https://prnt.sc/tndgqi. This is not what I want.

    It worked for the single post, but I don’t want it on homepage. Also, my logo is not showing on single posts as you can see https://camperfront.com.

    So, if there is no way I can achieve all these, can I have the same header design for both homepage and single posts as I asked before?

    Here’s the homepage for theme demo I’m using: https://prnt.sc/tnbykv

    And this is the single posts header/menu demo: https://prnt.sc/tnbzhg

    Can I achieve something like this?

    You screenshot (https://prnt.sc/tndd19) shows that you are changing the Header Background.

    Can you try changing the Navigation Colors as I mentioned and linked above?
