The header module allows you to modify the header or banner that appears on your website. Its default behavior is to appear at the top of each page on your site. Headers can contain images and text. The images can be either pre-made headers from Enjin community and staff, or images you've uploaded from your own harddrive. There are numerous text options, like font, size, style, and color. This allows you to add your website's name, slogans, or any other text to your header.
Using the Header Module
The Header library button will take you to the theme browser where you will find free and premium, professionally made Headers and Flash Headers. If you want to use an Enjin header, click Header Library and navigate yourself to a header you want to use and press the Use button
Custom Header - Upload your own image by pressing the hyper-link 'Upload Image'. No upload link? Delete the existing header to upload your own.

Header alignment - This aligns your header on your website to the left, center, or right.
Background color - This is the background color behind the main header image or can be used on it's own if you want a solid colored or transparent header.
Text Settings - Add text and edit by double clicking on the text in the preview, drag them into place. You can add up to 4 separate text items. Edit the font, text size, style and effects.
Choose 1 of the effects and the effect color: By combining font effects with text color and effect color a wide range of styles can be created.
- Drop Shadow
- Bevel Sharp
- Bevel Glow
- Thick Outline
- Outline Shadow
More fonts and effects will be added in the future!
Text can be added to any header type - Custom, Automatic or Manmade.
Upload Images - This gives you the ability to upload additional images, such as logos or game characters. We recommend using png's or gifs which are image files that support transparency.

Types of Enjin Headers
Custom Header - This is your own uploaded image or flash file and is shown as the main "background". Supported formats are JPG, PNG, GIF. Custom header size should be: for liquid websites 2000px wide, and for fixed websites 1060px wide.
Automatic Header - Most Enjin made headers will be made as Automatic headers which are headers with editable "Header text". That means you can change the text at anytime in the header if, for example, your Team name has changed.
Manmade Header - These are several Enjin made headers found in the Theme browser that require our designers to manually edit the "Header Text". When you order the header you're asked for the "Header title". Place the header name you want in this box and double check the spelling!
The header will be available within 48 hours. Until the header is ready for use you will see "Pending" above the header. An email will be sent to notify you when it's ready for use. The "Header Text" cannot be changed automatically, however you can still add your own images and text over Manmade headers.
If you'd like to put in a header design request and see what other Enjin community members can come up with, ask for a header in our Member to Member Designs & Requests forum! http://www.enjin.com/forums/m/10826/viewforum/6
Flash and Gif Animation
If you'd like to use an animated Header such as a gif animation or flash file, you'll need to use a HTML module as the header module does not support custom animation yet.
