The header is part displayed at the top of every page in your shop. It is the same throughout your store and includes the display of the logo, the currency and language options, the cart and search button and the main navigation.
We have been looking for a new and slicker way of displaying the menu. Since our themes are being used by smaller businesses with not so many products in a few categories as well as companies needing a bigger amount of submenu’s we had to find a way to make it work for everybody. Looking at some of our nation’s biggest online stores as for example Amazon of Bol.com we figured a collapsing fixed megamenu was the way to go. Since the navigation is at the heart of our designs, we started by making this work first. Not only on desktops but as well on mobile devices.
The menu is represented by a big bar. Once clicked on, the menu will collapse from there. We found out that customers love to click on a menu bar. Since this will trigger the feeling of control over where to browse to through the store. Once the menu opens, it’s megamenu structure will give the user the possibility to overview directly all the categories the store has to offer in a structured way. Since pages can become longer and longer, we fixed the navigation bar at the top at all time. Giving the user even more control and the opportunity to browse quicker.
Header style: We included 4 different headers to choose from. Making your store even more unique. To see all the different styles, you can check the 4 different presets. They all make use of a different header style. The big differences lie in the display of the top bar where you can share more information and the possibility to make it transparent.
‐ If you choose to use the top bar in the menu style (menu style 3 or 4). You can insert a telephone number, an email address and a store locator button for your physical store.
3.1 Header / Color
Top bar background: If you have selected header style 3 or 4 you are able to choose which color you want to use for the top bar. The navigation bar including the currency and language, cart button and search button is either transparent or can be changed in the color scheme setting from light or dark. (consult setting

3.2 Header / Search
Customers like to use the search button in stores. Because they want to know if the product that they look for is also available in other colors, or if there’s any complementary products available. In these settings we give you the opportunity to steer your customers towards products you’d like them to see. Since they look for a specific product they might not be aware of other products that you offer in the store. By inserting search suggestions, you can help the client discovering products, categories or brands he might not even have thought off.
