The Station Header custom component provides a similar look to the PBS.org header, allowing you to present users with a familiar website appearance and functionality on your station site.

There are two menu styles from which to choose and both menu styles can be assigned at the menu item level. Your entire menu does not have to be one or the other. 

The following are the two types of menus:

  • Dropdown - allows linked text menu items
  • Mega Menu - allows linked text and image menu items


  • Your logo should be a maximum width of 120 pixels and maximum height of 70 pixels.
  • You can add up to eight (8) menu items  The character limit for all eight combined (including spaces) is 90 characters. 
  • You can add up to ten (10) sub-menu items.
