Full Width Header

Logo Links & Searchbox Options

The full width header has options for two logo/icons which can be configured as hyperlink to an internal or external and to open in a new window if required. One icon can be placed relative to the browser left and the other to the right.
The h1 heading has the option to use a non web safe or Google hosted font with a web safe fallback.
The optional searchbox is positioned relative to the browser left and, like all the other items, its vertical position can be adjusted. The box has several styling options including a transparent background control which has been turned on in the example on this page.
The header can have a two color gradient background if required and both the gradient angle and the opacity can be adjusted.

Tap To Close Navigation

The last item in the widget settings is a checkbox labelled "Tap to close".
This should be checked if the header is used along with the EverWeb default navigation and the page is likely to be viewed on a tablet device such as an iPad.
On a touch device, there is no means of closing a navigation dropdown once it is opened - apart from clicking another dropdown or link. Checking this box will add a javascript to the page which allows touch device users to close a dropdown by tapping anywhere off the navigation menu.
