A while ago I was asked how to get a similar effect for the navbar like in this template. After taking a look at the code I was not super happy with how they solved the problem and decided to do it a little faster and easiert. The result can be seen on the demo page.
When I first started creating responsive Websites, navigation was always one of the hardest things to accomplish. Because of that, I almost always went with Bootstrap. But using a pretty huge framework for something pretty small like a menu pretty soon started bothering me. So I searched for tutorials on how to write a responsive menu and soon started, to write my own, because there was almost always something that I did not like.
For all of you out there that are in the same position I was, when I started, I created this menu. It is a three level navigation, that will be generated from a simple link list.
I’m a big grid fan. A “left-middle-right”-layout is something I’ve used hundreds of times. But because I’ve mostly just worked with elements of the same width, I’ve never realized before, that it is actually not that easy, to really center the middle element. So when I recently wanted to do the same thing with three buttons, I found out, that I had to figure out a new method.
But a solution was found and that’s what I want to talk about today.
