  6. Then change the Button Font Weight to your preference.

Step 6: Change the Secondary Menu (Top Row)

  2. Inside the Image Section, select the Image Gear Icon to place your site logo.

 

You may need to adjust your logo size. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Select the Design tab in Image Settings.
  2. Inside Sizing Section, change the Max Width to your preferred size.
    Note:
    The height of your logo may cause the header top row to increase in height. If so, this may require an adjustment to the fixed header custom CSS that defines the value for the lower menu row to stop at the top of the browser window on scroll. To make this adjustment, please see Step 10 below.

 

Step 8: Change the Social Media Icon Styling

  1. Select the Gear Icon in the Social Media Follow module.
  2. Then select the Gear Icon for one of the social networks. This will open Social Network Settings.

Repeat this step for each of the social networks needed on your website header.

Next, adjust the Social Media Icon Design Settings:

  1. Select the Design tab in Social Media Follow Settings. This allows you to make edits for all the icons at one time.
  2. Change the Icon Color to your desired color and Icon Hover Color desired. For this example, we are keeping the icon fill white with a 100% opacity with a Hover color of white with 50% opacity.

If needed, you can change the Icon Font Size to your desired size by changing Use Custom Icon Size to YES. Then adjust the size.

 

Step 9: Change Header Background Color(s)

Here’s how to change one or both of the separate header row’s background color:

  1. Select the Gear Icon in one of the bottom two Row modules to open its Row Settings.
  2. In the Background Section, add a background color to what you want for your header row.

Note: Both rows work the same way.

 

Step 10: Adjust the Custom Fixed Row Position

The height of your primary logo (desktop widths) may cause the header top row to increase in height. If so, this may require an adjustment to the fixed header custom CSS that defines the value for the lower menu row to stop at the top of the browser window on scroll. Here’s how to make this adjustment.

  1. Select the Gear Icon in the Code module to open Code Settings.
  2. In the Content tab, scroll to Line 107 to change the value for “.admin-bar header.et-l–header.custom-fixed-header { top: -54px; }.” In our example, for the Divi Interior Design Child Theme, we changed the value to “{ top: -66px; }.


And we’re done!

You can now test your header on the front end of your site, and fine tune the design settings to fit your particular website.
