This is the most flexible navigation system designed to work on any device. It is fully responsive and comes with 10 color presets. This menu can be fixed at the top of the browser and has an optionnal trigger button to show or hide the menu bar. On mobile devices, the menu is put back into the flow of the page to make sure that all the content can be reached (fixed elements that don’t fit into a phone screen can’t be scrolled). If one menu isn’t enough, you can add others as you wish.

Drop-Down Navigation: Responsive and Touch-Friendly

What if you need a multi-level navigation? In most cases, you design a drop-down menu using unordered lists. But what do you do to make it usable on small and / or cursorless screens? By usable I mean being able to use hyperlinks on parental anchors and open them with a double-tap (which is a native act on touch devices), also being able to close the drop-downs by tapping anywhere outside them to avoid flashing and other huge usability faults but having a usual bulletproof drop-down menu on desktop screens at the same time.
