Step 6: The Header would automatically fetch the dynamic image that is the site logo from the website but if that’s not the case, you can add the site logo by dragging and dropping the site logo module, and it will directly fetch the site logo.

If you are still not able to see the site logo, then go ahead and check with your theme if the image is updated there or not.

  • Hello,
    I’ve installed Element and cannot see the Header Template option. Only Page and Section.
    Have I forgot something?

    P.S. – Great plugin guys! Amazing work.


  • Correct me if I am wrong, in order to make Power Pack Elements custom header work, I need to buy Elementor Pro which includes a header option and then buy Power Pack to create a header option.

    If so, NOWHERE on your site except in a comment I’ve just read can I see it said Elementor Pro is a requisite.

    If so, my excitement fades to disappointment.

    • Hi Robyn,

      Yes, you are correct Custom Header functionality is available in Elementor Pro. I am sorry, this wasn’t clear in the post and it has been updated now.
      I would also like to clarify that you don’t need PowerPack Elements to build a Custom Header.

      Let me know if you have any other questions.
