Weebly Tricks #51 - Responsive Toggle Menu

Posted by Domingo Tambasacan at 5/27/2014

Responsive Toggle Menu for Weebly



I would like to share the latest CSS3 from dynamicdrive.com as of today. It is a small icon than can be clicked to show its content. It is almost similar to chrome's icon located on its top right. Additionally, this toggle menu is responsive and can be viewed on smaller screens by automatically adjusting its width to fit.








1. Before anything else, the CSS code is too long for this post (I hate to post too long), so i decided to use external CSS and you too. Simply right click on the CSS file below and choose "save link as".

togglemenu.css

Upload it to you template by going to Weebly > Design > Edit CSS/ HTML > Add new files > select togglemenu.css on your computer > save changes.

2. This is a pure CSS3 so you don't need a JavaScript. To start with, decide where you put this tricks whether on solo page, page of same layout or show on the whole site. Check "3 Ways in Editing Weebly's <head>" to know more.

3. Assuming you've decided to put this on a single page then go to Weebly > PAGES > choose the page title on the left > click advance settings on the right > on the header code box, paste the following code:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://myweeblytricksdemo.weebly.com/files/theme/togglemenu.css">

Just change the red marked text with your own website address to point the file you uploaded on step 1. After that, click the "save and edit" button.

4. You are now on the page working area, drag an "embed code" element from the left and inside it paste the following codes:

<div class="iconicmenu">
<input type="checkbox" id="togglebox" />
<ul>
<li><a href="http://www.myweeblytricks.com">Home</a></li>
<li><a href="http://myweeblytricks.com/search/label/Basic%20and%20News?max-results=6">Basic</a></li>
<li><a href="http://www.myweeblytricks.com/search/label/Image%20Effects?max-results=6">Image</a></li>
<li><a href="http://www.myweeblytricks.com/search/label/Text%20Animations?max-results=6">Text</a></li>
<li><a href="http://www.myweeblytricks.com/search/label/Scrollers?max-results=6">Scroller</a></li>
<li><label for="togglebox"></label></li>
</ul>
<label class="toggler" for="togglebox">Menu</label>
</div>

On my example above, I used five tabs for my menu, so you need to edit your own. Simply change the following, five of them. The green is for your tab title and the blue is the link for that specific title.

Save and publish your site and your done. You've just made an awesome responsive toggle menu for your site!

    3. I don't get it. Top of everything but on the left center? Since its just an HTML on page, then you can insert anywhere.
