Layout

There are seven header layouts available in The7  (fig. 1):

If you use Elementor templates as a header, you can disable native The7’s one in the very first option of “Layout” tab (fig. 1). However, we believe The7’s header are more flexible and responsive, and recommend to use this part of our theme 😉

You can find examples of layouts below (fig. 2.1 – 2.3):
