You can set up the header in the Customizer by adding your custom text, background image which can be overlayed with a color or blurred to your liking.

  1. I love your free theme roundup. I am using the Llorax One Lite.
    First, I have a question: what free 301 redirect plugin would you recommend for wordpress?

    Second: I know these aren’t your themes, just wanted to say my experience with two. These two themes each have a need-to-do for mobile usability:
    1. Weh Lite
    Slider – navigating the slider is difficult for mobile. It would be great if they added the side arrows or another way of navigating this slider for mobile. (too small to navigate on mobile).

    1. Magnus
    Menu – it would be nice if the menu was sticky so it can be accessed anytime during the scroll/browse of the page.

    Thanks for always sharing a great collection of free themes!

  2. Great collection of themes ! I will try the Magnus theme because of the minimalist design it is very engaging.
    Thank you !
