Sticky Header Effects for Elementor adds useful options that are missing from the “sticky« header feature introduced in Elementor Pro 2.0. Giving users the option to change the background color and height when the visitor starts scrolling down the page. This allows for a “transparent« menu effect that can become any color, semi-transparent or solid, once the visitor begins to scroll.
This plugin is cross-browser compatible and fully responsive. Meaning it will work on all browsers as well as tablets and mobile devices.
This plugin is meant to be an add-on to Elementor Pro page builder as it’s not a standalone plugin.
- Options panel built-in to Elementor Pro’s advanced section options. – Settings are right where they should be without cluttering up your workspace.
- Apply options on scrolling – The scrolling distance for the Sticky Header Effects to be applied is responsively adjustable for the best results in any situation.
- Transparent Header – Uses position to move header section down on top of the page. No need for problem causing negative margins.
- Header Background Color – Options for header after scrolling with full HEX, RGBA, and Color Name support.
- Bottom Border – Allows user to change the color and thickness of the bottom border upon scrolling.
- Shrink Header – An effect which changes section min-height to maximize space and achieve a slim style without losing functionality.
(Remember that the “shrink« effect is limited by the height and padding of the header content. See the F.A.Q.)
- Shrink Logo – Ability to adjust the logo height after scrolling
*Change Logo Color – Change the logo image color before or after the user scrolls. Useful for switching header design from monocromatic to full color
*Blur Background – Add a modern blur effect to a semi-transparent header background color after scrolling
*Hide Header on Scroll Down – Hides the header if scrolling down, and shows header if scrolling up. Has selectable distance to start the effect

Why isn’t the “shrink« effect working?
The header cannot shrink smaller than the objects inside of it!
The “shrink« effect is restricted by the size of the content in the header section. Such as logos, images, menus, widgets, and also all of the padding and margins of those elements. This also inclused the padding and margins of the sections and columns themselves.
To get the best “shrink« effect use these settings:
* Set the top and bottom padding to 0px on your sticky header section, column, and elements inside of it.
* Set a custom logo and other image height(you can leave the width blank for “auto«).
* Set the header section height to “min height« and adjust it to your desired height.
Basically what happens is that the content of the header is “too tall« to shrink down anymore.
Is this a standalone Plugin?
No. You cannot use Sticky Header Effects for Elementor by itself. It is a plugin for Elementor Pro.
Does it work with any WordPress theme?
Yes. It will work with any WordPress theme that is using Elementor Pro as a page builder.
