Helix Ultimate

Featured Lock Resolved Task
I started building a site
using the empire template.
I have made a stageIt copy, uninstalled all helix 3 components and installed Helix ultimate.
All seems to be working except the styling of the header. Is this possible or will I run into problems?
Also, will you be updating Empire to ultimate?

Thanks and regards

1) probably before end of month will be a new Helix update (1.1)
2) Maybe yes, but in next months , not days.

sorry but opening sites from Australia here in Europe takes ages.
What about style , The only issue I saw is wrong settings of columns LOGO / MENU
yes I agree ... painful if you can change it from settings so easy as it was in Helix3.
Solution so far:
1) Edit : plugins\system\helixultimate\layouts\frontend\headerlist\style-1\header.php
2) In line 52 and 59 change from

$output .= '<div id="sp-logo" class="col-8 col-lg-4">';

$output .= '<div id="sp-menu" class="col-4 col-lg-8">';


$output .= '<div id="sp-logo" class="col-8 col-lg-3">';

$output .= '<div id="sp-menu" class="col-4 col-lg-9">';

Use also this:

.sp-megamenu-parent > li > a, .sp-megamenu-parent > li > span {
padding: 0 15px; }

Hi Paul
Thanks for your support. I now have all the menu items in the right place.
I think you said on your blog that you will allow to chose different headers from Helix 3 which should mean I can choose the empire header?
Can thi\s be done now or is it coming with the next update?
I would like the header to look like the attached image.
Also the last suggestion above (use also this): I am unclear where to place it?

Thanks and regards
