Offset Floating Header Bar

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://dharmicliving.squarespace.com/

Hello! I am having issues with trying to create an offset floating navigation bar. I am using the below code which works perfectly on all pages except for the homepage, which is an index page. I want the offset margin to be present on all sides but currently the homepage is not viewing properly on the right hand side - see screenshot. Please help and thank you! pw : Dharma

// Floating Header Bar //
header {
  margin: 25px;
}

I am also using this code to create the background colour for the navigation...

.Header {
   background-color: #f0efed !important;
}

@earthwindflowermoon, you've added a margin, but the width of the header is still the same so it floated off the page, this Custom CSS should fix it by reducing the width of the header by double the margin:

.Header--bottom.Header--overlay {
  width: calc(100vw - 50px);
}

 

Please like and upvote if my comments were helpful to you. Cheers!

In Custom CSS, you will need to add some ~ " character to make calc work

.Header--bottom.Header--overlay {
  width: calc(~"100% - 50px");
}

and I think 100% will be better
