Responsive Nav is jQuery toggle menu plugin that converts a multi-level dropdown navigation into a nested off-canvas menu on small screen devices. When you click the toggle button, a sidebar navigation panel will slide out from the left side of the web page and push the main content section to the right.

How to use it:

1. Include the jQuery javascript library together with jQuery responsive nav plugin's javascript and CSS files in your Html page.

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.responsive-nav.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="jquery.responsive-nav.css" />

2. Create a multi-level dropdown navigation with Html unordered lists.

<div id="global-nav">
<li><a href="">Home</a></li>
<li><a href="">jQuery Slider Plugins</a>
<li><a href="">jQuery Range Slider</a></li>
<li><a href="">jQuery Value Slider</a>
<li><a href="">jQuery Image Slider</a>
<li><a href="">jQuery Carousel</a></li>
<li><a href="">jQuery Image Slideshow</a></li>
<li><a href="">jQuery Image Gallery</a></li>
<li><a href="">Contact us</a></li>
<li><a href="">Blog</a></li>
<!-- end #global-nav" --></div>

3. Create a menu toggle button that will become visible when the window's size reaches the break point defined in the CSS media queries.

<div id="responsive-btn"></div>

4. The CSS to style the original dropdown menu and custom the break point to determine in which screen size will display the off-canvas menu.

#global-nav {
background-color: #3886FC;
#global-nav ul li a {
color: #fff;
background-color: #3886FC;
font-size: 12px;
padding: 5px 20px;
text-decoration: none;
#global-nav ul li a:hover {
background-color: #5093F8;
#global-nav ul li ul {
display: none;
 @media screen and ( max-width: 939px ) {
#responsive-btn {
display: block;
position: absolute;
right: 20px;
top: 10px;

<script type="text/javascript">
jQuery( function( $ ) {
$( '#global-nav' ).responsive_nav();
