    Hi there,

    you can use a GP Page Header and set it to merged with Site Header. These articles provide some info:

    https://docs.generatepress.com/article/page-header-overview/

    Note: once the Page Header and Site Header are merged you can either make the Navigation colors transparent in the customiser, or you can set them in the Page Header (advanced tab). The latter means you can keep solid colors for sticky and transparent colors for merged header.

    Thanks David

    With you help , I almost achieved the results I needed only one problem

    As you see in my example the header have a transparent background kind of a light gray.

    1. I have defined this light gray with Customize in site header and works there,
    2. But when I merge the site header and the page header I this color is lost , its like the background image is on top of the background color of the header
    3. I have used the Advanced Options to define this transparent colors as background but then the whole image is covered in the transparent color

    I am missing something right?

    Regards

    Hi,

    ok for your current set-up it would be easier to hit the header with some CSS (adjust accordingly):

    .generate-merged-header .site-header {
        background-color: rgba(35,117,224,0.5);
    }

    Thanks Dave worked super!!!

    One last issue , I have added a logo for the mobile view to be shown instead the picture.

    Since the header image is 2000 x 1000 is there a css code to resize the image for mobile view?

    I would suggest the following changes, remove the text from the background image and instead add this as content to the Page Header, currently the text in the image is being cut off when the browser is rescaled. It also makes the text indexable.

    If you then still need to adjust the image or simply remove it we can apply some CSS to do so. Let me know

    Done David , I will use an slider instead, fixed the scaling , but in mobile the menu is Kind of Lost in the image and a big gray are now apears besides the slider, can this be fixed?

    Maybe view the Menu Above the Slider , in black instead of white, any other solution you suggest wiil be great, only need to fix the mobile view , Menu and Slider.

    Regards

    With MetaSlider under the Advanced Options their is the option to stretch 100% – currently it is limited to 2000px wide. You will need to remove the full height option in the header as well or you will have a lot of empty space below it on smaller screens.

    You can assign a Mobile Header in the Customiser > Layout > Header this should resolve the problem

    Hi Dave, I only managed to center the mobile menu, but not put it outside the header.

    I am missing some setting ?

    I hve used the option mobile menu on and off and the problem still exists.

    You can un-merge the navigation on mobile like this:

    @media (max-width: 768px) {
        .generate-combined-header {
            position: relative;
        }
    }

    Does that get you closer?

    Let me know 🙂
