There are header options for two states
- Default state
This is the default state which appears before user starts scrolling.
- On scroll
While the user scrolls down, the header will be hidden so it doesn't use unnecessary space. However the moment the user starts scrolling up, the header will animate down and be sticky at the top of the browser window. This ensures a better experience as the user won't have to scroll all the way to the top of the page to access the header components.
You can have different colors based on the state of the header which can be found in theme options > header
You can use HEX or RGBA to set header background
I'm sure you are familiar with HEX, however you can also use RGBA to set the background of the header. RGBA is useful as it allows you to add transparent backgrounds to the header. You can convert HEX to RGBA code by visiting this site
A 50% transparent red color would be rgba(255, 0, 0, 0.5)
While a 100% transparent color would be rgba(255,255,255,0)
