Press Add New and you will be directed to a form-like page where you will select Header in the dropdown field and choose a name for your header. Hit the Create Template button to proceed.

You will be taken to the templates library where you will find readymade templates. But since we are creating a custom header, go ahead and close the panel.

Next, you need to decide whether or not you want to display your header in full. For this tutorial, we will be going with a Full content width for the header.

Next, you need to create a header for your website and progress towards making it transparent. Make sure to use alternate colors for text and background while editing.

Next, you need to add a class to your header and paste the following CSS. This will make your header overlap the content without leaving spaces.

.site-header {
    position: absolute!important;
    width: 100%;
    left: 0%;
    z-index: 500;
}

The header will now be positioned at the top and will be transparent. For padding, you can follow the settings below or change them for your desired look.

Congratulations! Your transparent header is ready. Make sure to revisit your settings before publishing.
