Sticky Header Offset Option
A lot of you want your website headers to be sticky. It is amazing how the header menu of your website stays fixed at the top and makes site navigation a lot easier. Now, with the new header sticky offset option, you can decide when you want your header to be sticky. This option lets you make your header sticky after a pixel value you place in there.
When you are logged in to your website, go to Extensions → Templates. Click on the template you are using, open the Template Option. Now, on the Template Option panel, go to Basic → Header, find the Sticky Header option at the bottom. Enable Sticky Header and Sticky Offset field will appear below. Give it a pixel value and save the changes.
Several More Fixes and Improvements
Apart from the sticky header offset option, we have brought some fixes and improvements too. We’ve added missing language text, fixed Joomla 4 print popup issue, solved custom logo URL issue, fixed-layout builder grid options issue, mega menu full container issue, and hardcoded helix ultimate issue. We hope these fixes will improve Helix Ultimate 2.0 and make your experience with it much smoother.
We are drawing near to our Helix Ultimate 2.0 stable release. We believe this is going to change the way you build websites on Joomla. Test this Helix ultimate 2.0 RC 2, and do let us know your thoughts in the comment. And again, please do not use this version on your live site. Good luck.
