Choose how menus open responsively

You can choose how menus open when you click the Hamburger icon or MENU button: either a dropdown or flyout animation. This setting is located at Customize > Header > Nav layout > Responsive nav layout.

The following options are available and are described in the sections to follow. The menu behavior is the same whether you click a Hamburger icon or a Menu button or label.

  • Dropdown (default)
  • Flyout overlay
  • Flyout push
  • Flyout push with opacity

Responsive menu dropdown#

The Dropdown-style mobile menu appears below the header, as shown in the following screenshot on a mobile device. This option is a dropdown push, in that the menu pushes down the page content as it opens.

Flyout overlay#

With Flyout overlay, the menu flies in from the left or right (depending on the Responsive nav layout position setting) and overlays the main screen, as shown in the following screenshot. The menu background is the same color as the header background, though it appears darker in the screenshot because the header background has a gradient.
