In this Kadence theme tutorial I‘m going to show you how to create complex headers with the Kadence Pro theme. Why?

If you would like to know how I did it then take a look at this video here below.

Otherwise, you can download the export files and import them to your site. If you don’t know how to import Kadence settings then take a look at the video (this part starts at 28:34)

In order to import it you your site you need to:

  • unzip the .zip file
  • install Kadence Pro Addon
  • install and activate Kadence Addons by going Appearance >> Kadence
  • install and activate Kadence Blocks plugin
  • optional: if you need Wishlist on your site then install TI Woocommerce Wishlist plugin
  • import “kadence-theme-export.dat” file by going to Customizer >> Import/Export. You need the Kadence Starter Templates plugin to be installed

Other files are optional. For example,. if you need a below header section like shown in the video (see the screenshot above) then just copy everything inside the right file and paste it to the editor.
