Hi there,

I built a site on the old Brooklyn theme with a cool transparent header overlaying the image / video section below. 

Now on Dawn theme with Shopify 2.0 I cant seem to do it. 

Does anyone know how?

The very first section is a Pagefly section.

Site is: lifeisgreatenterprises.myshopify.com

password: lifeisgreat

 

any help much appreciated!

This is an accepted solution.

Try this. In your theme.liquid file in your layouts folder add this style code and condition right after the closing </head> tag:

 

  {% if template.name == 'index' %}
  <style>
  .header-wrapper {
    position: fixed;
    top: 0;
    width: 100%;
  }

  .header__menu-item, .header__active-menu-item, .header__icon .icon {
      color:#fff
  }

  .header__menu-item:hover{
      color:#fff;
  }

  </style>
  {% endif %}

 

 

This way it'll only apply on your homepage.

Hello, I tried the first code in the thread and it didn't work. So I followed the steps from the video. I copy-pasted the selector code instead of the js code as mentioned in the video for the steps it said to paste the js code. My header is still white and my banner has not moved. I don't know what to do. Can you help me?

Hello,

 

   I used the code given and it moved the image banner to the top of the header nicely. The side effect is that now my drop down menu is fixed, meaning users can not scroll down to see lower portions of the menu. Can this be altered, to allow menu to scroll when opened? I have a large mega menu through the Smart Menu App.

 

Any help is appreciated.

Hi Everyone,

 

How To Make Dawn Theme Header Transparent - Bluish.io

 

I've created a blog on how to turn the header transparent, as well as add color to the links and icons via the customizer while the header is transparent. I noticed some replies don't really code it well, so I took the initiative to complete it well and good. 🙂 enjoy everyone.

Thank you, so much! I had figured out another solution, but this one is so much better. Being able to control it in the customizer panel is fantastic. Your instructions are easy to follow. Thank you so much again. 

I would highly suggest this solution.
