The Header Builder plugin will allow you to tailor any header you desire.

Quick Tip!

Partially disabled theme options

Once you activate the plugin, many of the theme options related to the header will be inactive. You need to set those things in the Header Builder plugin.

Before we start

  • Where can you install the Codibu Header Builder? It’s in the same location as all of the bundled plugins, there you can download and install it.
  • Did you create your menu? Codibu Header Builder uses the same menu as the basic WordPress, so if you didn’t make it yet, or don’t know how to create a menu, please head to this topic
  • What happens with the theme options? All of the options related to the header and menu will be hidden and disabled – we did it to make it more understandable for customers that all of the settings depend on the Codibu Header Builder customizations
  • The different menus on a certain page

    Sadly, this functionality is not available – that’s the only limitation of that tool.
    So, we suggest using that plugin only when your website will have only the same menu between the pages.


Create your first header

Welcome to the world of the Codibu Header Builder!
The whole plugin is made to be the most customer friendly; you got here a few buttons, switches, and a lot of drag-and-drop items.

Let’s start building!

So, scroll to the container with the items on the bottom of the page and push the item to the center of Codibu Header Builder and hit the save button.
That’s it, you just created your first basic menu!

Menu without a logo? No way!

How to insert a logo? Precisely like the menu from the previous step, find the “Logo” item from the items list, drag and drop it into the Codibu Header Builder.

How does the system know which image is my logo?

It does not; you have to get into the settings of that item, just hover the item inside the Codibu Header Builder, and you will notice the pencil and “X” icon above it; click the pencil icon, and there you will be able to add the image for your logo


Header types

Codibu Header Builder gives you the opportunity to use other content in the Header for each device, including desktop, tablet, and mobile!

  • Switch between devices every device can have other header items inside. To change the type of device, please click one of the three buttons above the header container
  • Another item inside per device it’s easier than you think, all you have to do is switch to “Custom” mode – if you want to keep the content from the desktop, just leave the “Auto” mode

Sticky Header

Click the “Sticky” button and you will be able to create another (even with other items inside) header.


Action Bar & Second Row

To turn them on/off, click the toggle button.
It will extend your header even to be three-rowed!


Header & Rows settings

Rows are inside the header, and all of the settings of them are the same.

  • Options
    Several options for a menu:
  • Borders between items – as the name says, display border between menu items
  • Arrows for items with submenu – show arrows on the end of the name for menu items which are the submenus
  • Fold submenus for the last two items to the right – if your menu has a lot of submenus, it will bring the last two items to the right.
    It’s usually used to prevent overlapping the menu outside the screen
