There is no worries for using a complicated picture as the banner!! When customers scroll down, they are still able to see the menu items.
Example here is using white background and black wordings.
- It is only for homepage when the top banner will be shown in full-width
- Please be reminded to remove top and bottom padding and enable full-width for other pictures to share the effect with the top banner.
Route: SHOPLINE Admin > Navigation & Pages > Pages > Homepage-tagged page > Edit > Choose the picture to edit > Settings
B. Customize background colour of header
If merchants would like to customize the background of the header, they can upload a picture with plain colour or pattern. Please be also reminded to remove top and bottom padding and enable full-width image to get the best effect.
Example with patterned picture with white background:

Remember to check the layout in mobile devices as well!
In Ultra Chic theme, the logo and menu will be covered on the first image on the top (which is the first element on advanced page), if you don't want to overlap the logo and menu with the image, you can add a "Text" element with empty content as below:
C. Footer shown in black or light grey, according to background colour of header
SHOPLINE system will fill in whole footer with colours automatically. Merchants may fill in brand info or drag-and-drop other elements as well.
Example when background colour of header is dark, footer will also be dark.
When background colour of header is white, colour of footer will be light grey
Note: only the latest version of footer editor can support this design
SHOPLINE Admin > Navigation & Pages > Menu Navigation> Shop Footer
The editor does not show the background colour during setting. The effect can only be seen by preview or publishing.
D. Text title with underline
When using title elements, system will automatically apply underline with the theme colour set.
E. Pictures from Instagram are bigger!
SHOPLINE resize the Instagram elements to show bigger and clearer pictures in merchants' stores.
F. Please add shading and frames for your white logos
White logos help an eye-catching effect for black backgrounds.
But while sharing websites or sending emails, white logo will not be shown clearly as the example below.
It is suggested to add shading or frame for white logos as a result.
