Astra version 1.4.0 and above provides a feature to design Mobile Header separately for responsive devices.
It offers options to adjust Header Breakpoint, set different Logos, choose different Menu Styles, set Colors separately for the menu.
We have recently released the Header Footer builder in Astra version 3.0.0, due to which you will find some new changes. Please refer to the following article for the same.
Mobile Header Options with Astra Theme
From your WordPress dashboard navigate to Appearance > Customize > Header > Primary Menu. Here, scroll down to the “Mobile Menu” section which contains mobile header settings listed under several different tabs:
The setting can be found under Header > Primary Menu > MOBILE MENU
The default menu breakpoint for Astra is 921px. It can be changed easily with the slider.
For example – If a breakpoint is set to 554px then the desktop header will be visible till 554px width and it will change to a mobile header below 554px.
This will allow you to set a target to open a submenu in the mobile header. It has two options – Icon and Link.
If you choose Icon, the submenu dropdown will open with the click of a small arrow icon beside the menu item name.
And if you choose Link, the submenu dropdown will open with the click of an entire menu item (link).
Toggle Button Style, Toggle Button Color, and Border Radius
Settings can be found under Layout > Header > Primary Menu > MOBILE HEADER.
Style the toggle button with these settings. (?)
Menu Label on Small Devices
The setting can be found under Layout > Header > Primary Menu > MOBILE HEADER.
It allows adding a label to the toggle button and highlight it. (?)
Mobile Header Alignment
It allows choosing the alignment of logo and menu on devices below breakpoint. (?)
The desktop screens often require a larger logo than mobile screens. At the same time, this large logo might hide the big part of the viewport on mobile. Also, there might be differences between desktop and mobile headers that would require a different logo (color, type, size, etc.). Thus, there is a separate option for adding a different logo for mobile devices.
You can set this under Layout > Header > Site Identity. Choose option Different Logo for mobile devices? and add a mobile device logo image here. (?)
To adjust the size for the logo click on the responsive toggle button for Logo Width and adjust the width.
