Every part of the Jupiter X theme is customizable, including the header. In Jupiter X, you can customize the header whether using Elementor or Jupiter X’s default theme part customizer. You can customize the Jupiter X header using Elementor since Jupiter X is an Elementor-based WordPress. Most components of this website are built with Elementor. In Jupiter X, Elementor is one of the required plugins you need to install. Another required plugin is Jupiter X Core.
Jupiter X Core plays a role to provide an additional GUI to the WordPress theme customizer. This GUI can be used to customize the Jupiter X theme parts, including the header.
Customizing the Jupiter X Header Using the Default Theme Part Customizer
To customize the Jupiter X header using the default theme part customizer, you can open the WordPress theme customizer (Appearance -> Customize). The first thing you want to do might is to change the site logo. To do so, open Site Identity -> Site Logo.
There are 8 different logo types you can upload.
To start customizing the header, open the Header section and set the header type to Default.
As you can see, there is an option to set the alignment (left or right), to enable the overlap content option, and to enable the full-width option. On the Display Elements section, you can hide/show the elements you want. In the Behavior section, you can set the behavior of the header. Whether static, fixed, or sticky.
To customize the look of the header, you can open the Styles tab. There are five elements you can customize their look: logo, menu, submenu, search, container. Click the Customize button on the element you want to customize.
Let’s take an example.
To customize the menu, you can click the Customize button on the Menu element. From the appearing window, you can set things like the color of the background, font style, font size, font color, hover color, and so on.
Don’t forget to click the Publish button to apply the changes you have made.
