The content of the Header Layout section can be anything that you can build in the Avada Builder. You have access to the full range of Design Elements, and you can build the Layout Section in either the Back-end or Front-end interface of the Builder.
Most commonly though, you would use the Menu Element, the Image Element to place your Logo, and perhaps some other Elements for design, such as the Social Icons, Separator, Title, Text Block, or the Breadcrumbs Element. Plus perhaps some background color or effects on the container etc. It’s completely up to your imagination and requirements. With the Header Builder, you can create all manner of Headers, from basic to advanced.
In the Header Layout section, you do NOT have access to the Layout Section Elements that are found in Content Layout Sections, as they are specific to content areas. But apart from that, you can build whatever your imagination can design. You can also import pre-made Avada Studio Header Layouts from the Starter Page, or the Studio tab when editing Header Layout Sections.
See below for the new Pet Supplies Prebuilt Website Custom Header Layout Section, as shown in the back-end of the Builder.
See below for what this Header Layout looks like on the front end!
With Avada Layouts, and the Header Layout Section, there are now no impediments to creating completely custom Headers for your entire site, or even conditionally, for just some custom post types, categories or even single pages.
