Navbars introduction

To prepend one or multiple fixed navigational bars to the menu, include the "navbars" add-on .js and .css files and use the navbars options.

   <script src="path/to/jquery.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
   <script src="path/to/jquery.mmenu.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
   <script src="path/to/jquery.mmenu.navbars.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
   <link href="path/to/jquery.mmenu.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />
   <link href="path/to/jquery.mmenu.navbars.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />
   <script type="text/javascript">
      $(document).ready(function() {
            navbars: [{
               // first navbar options
            }, {
               // second navbar options

A menu can have up to 8 navbars (4 positioned at the top and 4 positioned at the bottom).

A navbar can contain a back-, next- and close button, a title, breadcrumbs, a searchfield, a range of buttons (like tabs), custom content or any combination thereof.


Give it a go, change the options below and see how it affects the menu in the example on the right.

  • Prepend a searchfield to the menu.
  • Prepend a fixed header to the menu.
  • Append a fixed footer to the menu.
<script type="text/javascript">
   jQuery(document).ready(function( $ ) {

  • Core (on-canvas).
