The Header Builder plugin will allow you to tailor any header you desire.

GO TO WP Admin > BeTheme > Install Plugins
Quick Tip!

Partially disabled theme options

Once you activate the plugin, many of the theme options related with the header will be inactive. You need to set those things in the Header Builder plugin.

Before we start

  • Where can you install the Muffin Header Builder?

    It's in the same location as all of the bundled plugins, there you can download and install it.

  • Did you create your menu?

    Muffin Header Builder uses the same menu as the basic WordPress, so if you didn't make it yet, or don't know how to create a menu, please head to this topic

  • What happens with the theme options?

    All of the options related to the header and menu will be hidden and disabled - we did it to make it more understandable for customers, that all of the settings depends on the Muffin Header Builder customizations

  • Different menu on certain page

    Sadly, this functionality is not available - that's the only limitation of that tool.
    So, we suggest using that plugin only when your website will have only the same menu between the pages.


Create your first header

Welcome to the world of the Muffin Header Builder!
Whole plugin is made to be the most customer friendly, you got here few buttons, switches, a lot of drag and drop items.

Let's start building!

So, scroll to the container with the items on the bottom of the page and push the item to the center of Muffin Header Builder and hit the save button.
That's it, you just created your first, basic menu!

Menu without logo? No way!

How to insert a logo? Precisely like the menu from the previous step, find the "Logo" item from items list, drag and drop it into the Muffin Header Builder.

How the system know, which image is my logo?

It does not, you have to get into the settings of that item, just hover the item inside the Muffin Header Builder and you will notice the pencil and "X" icon above it, click the pencil icon and there you will be able to add the image for your logo


Header types

  • Switch between devices

    Every device can have other header items inside, to change the type of device, please click one of the three buttons above the header container
