Turn Header into A Row


In most templates, the header is a row by default. However, in certain older templates, the header is fixed with limited customization options. Templates with fixed headers typically include certain widgets, such as social media links or a phone number in the header by default. However, these widgets are fixed and cannot be moved like widgets in normal rows. By turning the header into a row, you can add or edit widgets just like any other row on your Site.
