Features

  • Add unique drop shadows to your header, including shadows that created 3D text.
  • Include image-based badges with headers.
  • Get fine tuned control over letter and word spacing.
  • Add links to your headers.
  • Allows you to add a secondary text element to headers.
  • Independently style headers and secondary text.

Example

Below we’ve created a few examples of headers using the Header Plus stack, using its various shadows, badges, secondary text and other features. Each example will tell about its settings in the paragraph below the Header Plus example.

This header uses the Header Plus stack’s ability to add a link to your header. We’ve also added a shadow to the header using Header Plus’ Heavy Shadow preset.


Header

Here we’ve set the header to be all uppercased, as well as selected the the Elegant drop shadow preset. We’ve used the letter spacing settings of Header Plus to set the spacing between characters to 20px. Header Plus allows you to set the letter (and word) spacing to different values at each of the 3 responsive breakpoints -- in this example the extra spacing is only applied to the Desktop breakpoint.


HeaderBadge Image

Here we’ve used Foundry’s Typeface stack to set the font to Roboto, with a nice bold font weight. We’ve also included a nice image as a badge using Header Plus’ badge feature. The badge can be sized and its positioning, upwards and down, adjusted at each of the 3 breakpoints. We’ve also used the Custom drop shadow setting to create a nice small, but soft drop shadow.


Header

In this example we’ve set the text color to white, using the color picker and applied the 3D shadow feature. We’ve also applied a different font using Foundry’s Typeface stack -- using the Bungee font in this case through Google Fonts.

We’ve also used the multiple alignment feature of Header Plus, which allows you to set the alignment for the header at each of the three breakpoints. We’ve set the alignment to the left at the desktop and tablet breakpoints and centered at the mobile breakpoint.


Using Header Plus

General

Tag
Choose which tag should be associated with your header. HTML uses a series of specialized tags relating to headers. This option allows you to select the right tag for your particular use. The more important the information on the page the larger the header should be.

  • H1: Page Title
  • H2: Sub Title
  • H3: Section
  • H4: Sub Section
  • H5: Small
  • H6: Smallest

Header Font

The default values and settings for headers on your page can be setup within the Foundry Control Center stack. There you can set font sizes, weights, colors and more.

Match Secondary Size to Header
Enabling this feature will make sure the Secondary Text is not a sub-size of the main Header text, but will instead assign the same font size to both. This will increase the Secondary Text to match the font size of the main Header text.
