Question Black Background Showing When Trying to Add Header Template



New Member
Hey guys, I'm trying to create a header by adding a new header template however the background keeps showing as black by default. It's only showing like this when I try to add a new template specifically for header... doesn't show up black on any of the other pages or when I try to add any other template. Has anyone had this issue before?

That looks to me like admin.css being added by you MAMP server or more to the point it's over writing the header Elementor template area.

Without getting into the it's a plugin, as you are on localhost install a vanilla WP then one by one add your plugins. Does it show on your live pages?


Your are running a localhost install go to your htdocs folder a create another folder and install wp in it.

Then install a vanilla WP in it.
