I have a quick question regarding the header and top bar elements, and am not sure it merits opening another ticket.
Regarding headers, there will be only 2 pages on our site – the homepage and one category page – that will have have a full-width header, one with a slider and the other with one image. None of the other pages and posts will use this. If the header element is used in only these 2 instances, would it be fine to create an Element that disables headers on all pages and then use a Header Element for the 2 pages where we will use a header? Should I also create an exception in the Element that disables headers site wide to exclude the homepage and the one category page?
Regarding the top bar, I don’t think we will use it. After reading the documentation I found on GP on the top bar, it’s not really clear what it’s for (that’s just me). On our site, we’re just going to have a basic transparent navigation bar with maybe some social media icons. As such, would it be alright to disable it site wide if not used?
Thank you.July 4, 2020 at 1:23 am #1351358DavidStaffCustomer Support
The Top Bar is just a widget area above the header – it is only displayed on the site if it contains a widget.
You can use Header Elements any how you need.
You could create a Header Element just for your
Front Pageand a separate Header for your
Blogpage. They will only display where you want them.July 4, 2020 at 5:29 am #1351500Andres
Thanks for the info.
I’m a bit confused. What is the difference between the header that is active by default on all pages and posts (Post/Page > Document > Disable Elements > Header) and a header element created in Appearance > Elements > Add New > Header?

Header refers to the Site Header – which by default is where your logo, site title, tagline and maybe a floated navigation would be displayed.
Header Elements are the sections that can be displayed under ( or merged ) with the site Header. Used mainly for displaying a Hero section or call to action.July 4, 2020 at 3:15 pm #1352126Andres
Thanks for the clarification.
Have a good day.
