Interesting Header scroll effect:

Does anyone know how to do this on a Genesis theme ?

Specifically: Having the Header set to 100 % opacity - transition up (on scroll) - Then re-appear upon a specified page (scroll) with a different color and height ?

Anyone know how to set-up menu links in the form of #id to a WP theme ?

I am trying to get (Page scroll to id) to work however, the Genesis theme I am using does not use ID selectors in the site navigation, so I am not sure how to have my menu's default with # attribute.

Is this functions.php call ?

That's one of the first articles I reviewed along with +Sridhar Katakam . The problem no one is addressing - since WP3.8 you can longer set URL from within the Nav Menu. This means customizing the css per theme.

Attempted to mod my Centric Pro theme to Hide Header upon scroll using

This is excellent tutorial by +Sridhar Katakam but I am at a loss for why I can't get it function correctly/ JS is always such a pain to work with.

So far: I have moded the Global.js

Was able to (fix) the header (remove shrink) by removing the (shrink) variable from global.js -

Still cannot get the Header Hide to work though...

I have all the correct js loaded, must be the css code ?

Has anyone used this on Centric Pro or Agency Pro ?

+Mike Hemberger You are correct on setting .site-header to fixed (scrolls-up) I should have been more specific...late night :)  That does work....the issue is that the header does not re-appear with xxx amount of pixels reverse scroll as it should in the example.  I am working on Local Machine now so no link..perhaps when I get it on site later this week. Was hoping to have this resolved.  Thanks for your help.
