In this video, I’ll show you the beautiful new way of creating and managing page headers in the new GeneratePress Premium, version 1.4.
It’s a totally new approach that’s elegant, flexible and dynamic. Very powerful in fact!
With this new feature, you definitely don’t need a page builder like Elementor to create those nice full width or full screen hero image page headers. In fact in this particular demo, I haven’t even got Elementor installed!
You might already know that Elementor is an amazing WordPress page builder.
It allows non-coder designers like yourself to build 100% custom-designed WordPress pages, exactly as you want them. It’s really visual, and it’s drag-n-drop. It works in the way designers think, with no code required (hurray!)
But if you’re like many designers, once you’ve used Elementor for a while, you might soon find yourself thinking:
“Hmmm… my theme still handles my header – my logo and navigation area. I wonder if I can use Elementor to design my website header as well?”
Generally speaking, Elementor’s responsive editing features are pretty good.
But a lot of people get stuck trying to fully control the column layout in the tablet view. The editor doesn’t really give you any control, at least not at the moment. If you want to control how many columns there are side-by-side on tablets, using the default controls…. you’re out of luck!
I showed you a method first where I create a section with the ‘Add New Section’ button, and then dragged the columns widget in for further rows. I mentioned that I didn’t recommend this method because it can cause layout consistency issues. But… I didn’t elaborate on why!
