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

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

  • 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

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.
