    A site I’m almost done with is set for transparent, glassy headers on all pages and no sidebars. It was working fine up until I installed the plugin “Contact Form 7 – PayPal Add-on – Pro”. I absolutely have to use this plugin to get the functionality the client requires. I suppose it’s possible that some other plugin may provide the same thing, but I don’t think I have time to find another one.

    Is there any way you guys can tell me what might be happening? I’ll post the URL to the site in the private content area below.




    Hi scotthco!

    You will have to contact the plugin author, who will help you further with that.
    it is not possible for us to debug any third party plugin functionality, while trying to find out where the issue is.
    Please let us know if we can do anything else, related to our plugin.



    Here’s the thing: When the plugin is turned on, it’s like I set the header back to no transparency in the page’s metabox. I was hoping you could at least tell me where that functionality can be found in the Enfold code so I’d have a chance at solving this. I know you guys don’t know the plugin code, but you do know Enfold code, so you should at least be able to tell me where in the code header transparency is turned on, can’t you?


    By doing an Inspect Element in Firefox, I’ve been able to determine that, when this problem occurs, .av_header_transparency and .av_header_glassy are missing from the classes for the <header id=”header”… element. Can anyone think of anything that would prevent these two classes from being included when it’s configured properly in the page settings? I’m trying to work with the plugin developer, but I could really use some advice from Kriesi as to where to look for the code that implements header transparency.



    I must say, guys, I’m a bit disappointed. Up to this point, Enfold support has been great. Please, I’m not asking you to debug the plugin. I’m just asking for information on the Enfold mechanisms involved in making the header transparent. I’m guessing you use jQuery, right? Can’t you please tell me the files that are involved and where the transparency is triggered in the code? The problem actually doesn’t happen all the time. When I first started working with the site today it was fine, even with the plugin turned on. It wasn’t until I submitted the form, went to PayPal, then came back to the site that the trouble started. Then if the plugin was activated, the problem happened. If it was off, the header was fine. At this point, I’m wondering if something in the plugin may be interfering with your jQuery code when I get back from PayPal for some reason. I know I need to work with the plugin guy on that, but if you could please tell me what files (and routines?) are involved with header transparency, that would be a great help.

    Thank you!



    If you like to edit the js for the header please goto wp-content\themes\enfold\js\avia.js and search for .av_header_transparency
    and you can find most of the css in wp-content\themes\enfold\css\layout.css

    Hi Guys!

    You guys must use a combination of CSS and jQuery on more than just the <header> element to create the transparent header effect. When transparency is not working, the av_header_transparency and av_header_glassy classes are missing from the element. However I tried using jQuery to simply add them back in, but that was only partially successful.

    So I need to now turn this question around: With Transparent & Glassy Header set for a page under Header Visibility and Transparency, what could possibly cause the header to all of a sudden become opaque??? (Please see image link in private content.)

    Further, what could do this then “wear off” over time??? That’s right, after a time, it goes back to normal. Unfortunately I have no idea of how much time. Once it starts, it stays messed up while I’m working with it, then the next day, it’s back to normal until I “trigger” it. I thought perhaps the “reset” had to do with the App Pool recycling, but I did that manually and it made no difference.

    Could this be the result of a script or CSS somewhere that conflicts with Enfold scripts or CSS??? If so can you think of anything I can do to try and ferret out the offending script or CSS?

    Thank you!



    When we try to visit the links you have provided it say’s

    “403 – Forbidden: Access is denied.

    We cannot see the issue you have mentioned and unless we are able to inspect the element in question it is difficult to answer your question. Please share a working link with us so we can point you in the right direction.
