I am using GeneratePress and Elementor 1.5x to allow the content to show transparently under the header. Unfortunately, except for the first page that I did, all of the others failed. I have tried to create a new page but it fails the same way.
Here is a screencast that shows what I want and what issues I see: http://somup.com/cbiiVwVjkFGeneratePress 1.3.48GP Premium 1.3.1July 7, 2017 at 12:55 am #345461TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperJuly 7, 2017 at 4:04 am #345510Scott
I tried that, but it changed nothing. What is unusual is that the entire header shifts to the right leaving the gap shown on the left in the video, and creating an overhang on the right that. My header has three sections in it. Each section displays mobile only, tablet only, and desktop only. The mobile and tablet work just fine. And I have two pages, my front page and one subsequent page that work in all three. I just can’t create a new page or edit any of my previous ones.
Love the theme, by the way.July 7, 2017 at 5:27 am #345534Scott
So I temporarily ditched the custom header and went back to the default GP header, but the problem remained the same. It appears that the header wants to be boxed on the left, but extend full-width (100% of viewport width) to the right, overhanging all other content and creating a horizontal scroll situation.
I have found a Global work-around, however. By disabling the “Merge with site header” feature and implementing the GP Hooks and CSS here: https://generatepress.com/forums/topic/how-can-i-create-a-fixed-header-and-top-menu-in-the-generate-press-theme/#post-31579 I am able to cause the sticky-header/transparent-header that I was going for. The one problem is that I can’t turn it off selectively, which would be preferable.
The real concern for me, though, is why does it fail only on the full-size page and not on mobile or tablet?July 7, 2017 at 9:44 am #345654TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperJuly 7, 2017 at 9:52 am #345661Scott
I have temporarily disabled maintenance mode. Here is a link to an offending page: https://drwithrowdmd.com/test. Let me know when you are done so I can put it back in maintenance. If you want to look at the back end send me an email at sb dot tom at rcta dot co and I will give you access.July 7, 2017 at 9:56 am #345664TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
There’s a new feature in GPP 1.4 (currently in alpha) where the Page Header add-on was re-built: https://vimeo.com/223381628
This allows you to set the Inner container type to full width as well.
You can update to the alpha version like this: https://docs.generatepress.com/article/beta-testing/July 7, 2017 at 10:48 am #345705Scott
If I weren’t already at customer review, I would implement 1.4a today. That looks quite good. Anxious to see it released.July 7, 2017 at 10:51 am #345707TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperJuly 7, 2017 at 10:56 am #345710Scott
Works like a champ. Thanks for your help.July 7, 2017 at 7:27 pm #345856
