New Upgrade - Hamburger Menu

What Is The Hamburger Menu?

Despite its name, a Hamburger Menu is not fast food price list, but actually a type of page list that is used to navigate your way around a website.

The Hamburger Menus can be identified by the 3 horizontal lines that make up a button icon, which kind of looks like a Hamburger - which is where the name comes from!

Hamburger Menus are usually normally positioned at the top right-hand corner of your screen and are more commonly found on mobile phones and tablets.

What Does A Hamburger Menu Do?

Hamburger Menu is a type of navigation that is designed to help your website users find their way around your website more easily.

The Hamburger Menu works by placing your website pages under a 3 horizontal line icon, often referred to as a Hamburger icon. When your website users press the hamburger icon, your website pages with show clearly listed in a neat menu.
