It refers to the arrangement or design of elements in the header section of a website or application.
The header is typically the topmost section of a webpage and serves as the initial point of interaction for users. It often contains elements like the website logo, navigation menus, search bars, contact information, and other important links or buttons.
The Classic 1 layout is ideal for shops that prioritize functionality and transparency. This variant shows a top line displaying links, contact information, and language and currency switches. The main line features the logo, search input, cart preview, and account access, followed by a menu of product categories. This layout ensures that users have all the essential functions at their fingertips.
The Classic 2 layout streamlines the header by combining the essential features into a single main line. This variant includes the logo, search bar, language and currency switches, cart preview, and account access, followed by a menu of product categories. The reduced clutter can make this layout more user-friendly and visually appealing.
The Classic 3 layout features a comprehensive main line that displays links, contact information, language and currency switches, logo, search input, cart preview, and account access. Below this main line is the menu of product categories. This layout provides a seamless blend of functionality and simplicity, allowing users to easily access various elements of the webshop.
The Narrow layout offers a minimalist design that can create a clean, modern look for your webshop. This variant presents a single line with the logo and icon buttons for the e-shop, links, search, and account. This layout is perfect for webshops that prioritize simplicity and sleekness.

Top Links Menu
Header menu consist of the links at the top of the page. You can remove them and also add further links. There you should choose Top Links menu and press on to Edit existing page.
Do you need to add a new link? Here's a simple step-by-step guide:
- Select the Top Links Menu. This action will reveal all the existing links on the right side of your screen.
- Click on ADD NEW LINK...
A new interface will now open:
- Decide whether the new link will be internal (redirects to another page within your TronShop) or external (leads to a page outside your TronShop).
- Once you make your choice, a new field labeled "Target URL" will appear. Here, you should insert the URL that the link will direct to.
- In the "Link caption" field, enter the text to be displayed in the Top Links Menu. This can be something like 'About Us', 'Terms & Conditions', 'Contacts', etc.
- In field "Attach link image", you have the option to replace the text link with an image (icon). If link has an image, it is used instead of Link Caption.
Once all fields are completed, simply click on SAVE to finalize your changes.
PLEASE TAKE ATTENTION
If the new hyperlink you're adding is meant to lead to an internal page within your website, you'll need to ensure that the page exists. If it doesn't, you must first create the page before establishing the hyperlink. We have special article for such thinks. You can find it in article "Creating and editing pages"
The aim of the alternative header is to keep the customer focused on the order process.
You can choose whether you want to show the alternative header or not in
Settings > Visual settings > Shopping process. Do not forget to use the SAVE button.
