Sticky Header Effects for Elementor


Sticky Header Effects for Elementor adds useful options that are missing from the “sticky” header feature introduced in Elementor Pro 2.0. Giving users the option to change the background color and height when the visitor starts scrolling down the page. This allows for a “transparent” menu effect that can become any color, semi-transparent or solid, once the visitor begins to scroll.

This plugin is cross-browser compatible and fully responsive. Meaning it will work on all browsers as well as tablets and mobile devices.

This plugin is meant to be an add-on to Elementor Pro page builder as it’s not a standalone plugin.


  • Options panel built-in to Elementor Pro’s advanced section options. – Settings are right where they should be without cluttering up your workspace.
  • Apply options on scrolling – The scrolling distance for the Sticky Header Effects to be applied is responsively adjustable for the best results in any situation.
  • Transparent Header – Uses position to move header section down on top of the page. No need for problem causing negative margins.
  • Header Background Color – Options for header after scrolling with full HEX, RGBA, and Color Name support.
  • Bottom Border – Allows user to change the color and thickness of the bottom border upon scrolling.
  • Shrink Header – An effect which changes section min-height to maximize space and achieve a slim style without losing functionality.
    (Remember that the “shrink” effect is limited by the height and padding of the header content. See the F.A.Q.)
  • Shrink Logo – Ability to adjust the logo height after scrolling
    *Change Logo Color – Change the logo image color before or after the user scrolls. Useful for switching header design from monocromatic to full color
    *Blur Background – Add a modern blur effect to a semi-transparent header background color after scrolling
    *Hide Header on Scroll Down – Hides the header if scrolling down, and shows header if scrolling up. Has selectable distance to start the effect

Pro Features Coming Soon

  • Replace logo – Change logo image entirely
  • Entrance animations – Slide-in and fade-in animations with animation duration
  • Hide elements – Hide or show header elements after scrolling
  • Box shadow – Add or remove box shadow effect upon scrolling with color, horizontal, vertical, blur, and spread controls
  • Menu toggle animations – Entrance and exit animations for the mobile hamburger menu

Installation Instructions

  • Make sure that you have installed Elementor Pro Page Builder. This is not a stand-alone plugin and ONLY works with Elementor Pro.
  • Install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly or download the plugin and upload it to the plugin folder: /wp-content/plugins/.
  • Activate the plugin through the installation screen or the “Plugins” screen in WordPress
  • You can find Sticky Header Options for Elementor under a sections “Advanced” tab, directly under “Sticky Effect”.


Why isn’t the “shrink” effect working?

The header cannot shrink smaller than the objects inside of it!

The “shrink” effect is restricted by the size of the content in the header section. Such as logos, images, menus, widgets, and also all of the padding and margins of those elements. This also inclused the padding and margins of the sections and columns themselves.

To get the best “shrink” effect use these settings:
* Set the top and bottom padding to 0px on your sticky header section, column, and elements inside of it.
* Set a custom logo and other image height(you can leave the width blank for “auto”).
* Set the header section height to “min height” and adjust it to your desired height.

Basically what happens is that the content of the header is “too tall” to shrink down anymore.

Is this a standalone Plugin?

No. You cannot use Sticky Header Effects for Elementor by itself. It is a plugin for Elementor Pro.

Does it work with any WordPress theme?

Yes. It will work with any WordPress theme that is using Elementor Pro as a page builder.

Will this plugin slow down my website speed?

Sticky Header Options for Elementor is light-weight and you can also use only the options you want to use on your website for faster performance.

As others have stated these options should definitely be standard, especially for elementor pro. This plugin does it exactly what it says it does and helped me to quickly solve a few issues without having to track down or write the needed CSS. The biggest issue I ran into is that this plugin does not seem to work well with any added css animations on mobile. I needed to remove those anyways to optimize speed and since I did, haven't had any issues between multiple browsers and devices both on android and ios.

I have been using this plugin for a while and I really like it. If you are designing a wordpress website with elementor free plugin, then you should have this addon.

This is a massive shout out to the makers of SHe: You guys and gal have really discovered a niche in Elementor's core functionality and I'm aware of how hard it is to keep a free plugin alive and well supported. Your website's 'Coming Soon' section is making my mouth water. Logo-swap on scroll is a major issue for us and would be an amazing addition... but it seem to have been in the making for a long time and 8 months (as of today) without a plugin update make me worry. We'd happily pay for a premium version of your plugin if that's what's stopping you. But as it is, it's falling slightly short of what's needed.

It's a great effort, but like so many efforts to manipulate css from a plugin, there are just too many things that can (and in the case of this plugin will) go wrong. If you can get this plugin to consistently work for you, and I strongly recommend cross browser testing, it will be a great addition to your elementor pro setup. In my case it broke when the user scrolled back up to the top, causing the theme builder header sections to no longer display properly.
