The Page Title Bar is the horizontal bar/section that sits directly below the menu/header. It can be added via a Layout Section using Avada Layouts, or via the Global Options.
If added via Avada Layouts, there are basically no limitations as to the Page Title Bar content, as the full range of Avada Builder Elements are available to you when building your custom Page Title Bar Layout. For more information on how to create a custom Page Title Bar, please see theHow To Build A Custom Page Title Bar Layout doc.
If added via the Global Options, the Page Title Bar can contain the page title text, as well as the option of breadcrumbs, or a search bar. It is this method that this document covers.
There are numerous options to customize the Page Title Bar, including background images and custom subheadings. The Page Title Bar has global options found in the Avada > Options > Page Title Bar panel, and individual options in the Avada Page Options, found in all pages and posts, that will override global settings. The page title bar can be completely displayed or hidden on every page or post globally, and you can display or hide it individually per page or post.
See examples of the Page Title Bar created via Avada Layouts on theRestaurantWebsite, the blog posts on the Winery Prebuilt Site, and across the Avada Nutritionist site, just to name a few. You can still see the global options method on various pages on the Science, University, Spa and Hotel Prebuilt Websites. Read on to find out more about the global options method of adding Page Title Bars.
IMPORTANT NOTE: In Avada 5.5 we enhanced the handling of H1 & H2 automatic assignment for titles in the Page Title Bar and single posts. The post header for single posts, single FAQ, single portfolio, and WooCommerce single product pages will automatically default to H1 if for example the Page Title Bar >> Page Title Bar Text is set to Hide. if Page Title Bar >> Page Title Bar Text is set to Show then the post header will default automatically to H2.
