Just another jQuery based responsive nav solution that converts the normal horizontal dropdown navigation into a mobile-friendly sliding hamburger menu (aka off-canvas menu) on small screens. Supports nested, multi-level sub menus and has the ability to take all menus in the header and clones them into the mobile nav. Fully customizable via SCSS.

How to use it:

1. First you need to put jQuery library and the jQuery elmenu plugin's script at the bottom of your html document.

<script src="//"></script>
<script src="js/elmenu.js"></script>

2. Put the compiled CSS file in the head section of the document.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/styles.min.css">

3. Create a multi-level site navigaton and insert it together with the main page content to a container named 'canvas'.

<div id="canvas">
  <header id="elmain">

    <div class="elmtoggle__holder">
      <a href="#!" id="elmtoggle" class="cf"><img src="img/hamburger.svg" alt="Open Sub Menu" class="elmtoggle__icon"></a>

    <div class="navholder--utility cf">

        <ul class="nav--utility elm__list">
          <li class="elm__item"><a class="elm__link" href="#!">About</a></li>
          <li class="elm__item"><a class="elm__link" href="#!">Contact</a></li>
          <li class="elm__item"><a class="elm__link" href="#!">Blog</a></li>

      <ul class="nav--social elm__list">
        <li class="elm__item"><a class="elm__link" href="#!">Facebook</a></li>
        <li class="elm__item"><a class="elm__link" href="#!">Twitter</a></li>


    <div class="navholder--main">

        <ul class="nav--main elm__list">
          <li class="elm__item hassub"><a class="elm__link" href="#!">Product 1</a>
            <ul class="elm__list--sub">
              <li class="elm__item--sub hassubsub"><a class="elm__link--sub" href="#!">Product 1.1</a>
                <ul class="elm__list--subsub">
                  <li class="elm__item--subsub"><a class="elm__link--subsub" href="#!">Product 1.1.1</a></li>
                  <li class="elm__item--subsub"><a class="elm__link--subsub" href="#!">Product 1.1.2</a></li>
                  <li class="elm__item--subsub"><a class="elm__link--subsub" href="#!">Product 1.1.3</a></li>
              <li class="elm__item--sub"><a class="elm__link--sub" href="#!">Product 1.2</a></li>
              <li class="elm__item--sub"><a class="elm__link--sub" href="#!">Product 1.3</a></li>
          <li class="elm__item"><a class="elm__link" href="#!">Product 2</a></li>
          <li class="elm__item"><a class="elm__link" href="#!">Product 3</a></li>

4. Initialize the plugin and set the order you want the nav elements to show up in the mobile nav. Reminder: it's an array, so 0 is the first item. .

var menuOrder = ['2','0','1'];
$( '#elmain' ).elmenu( menuOrder );
