Asked on August 30, 2016 in Troubleshooting.

I dont know what is going on, after pressing the checkbox in the customization panel, there is no change in the site’s header. Only the sticky option works.

    Hey ,

    I tested it on my test site and it works with me.
    what version of layers and layers pro do you have ?

    I think I have the last version, but that feature is available without layers pro also right?

    Hey Fernando

    You don’t have the newest version , the last version is 1.6.6 .
    Log in in the layers website and download the latest version of layers pro .

    You don’t need layers pro for the transparent overlay.
    so be sure you have the latest Layers theme version as of now it is version 1.5.6

    if you are not sure you can check it in Dashboard -> Themes -> select Layers theme
    then you should see your current version.

    if it is not the latest you can follow this if you are not sure how to :

    Dieter, thank you for your help here.

    Just a note on this, we actually noticed a bug, wherein if you have an anchor on your first slider widget, the  header is not reading that your first widget is a slider and therefore not applying the overlay.

    We will fix this in 1.5.9
