How To Add Hamburger Menu Toggle On Header With Divi

Rifat Divi Tutorials Oct 18, 2021

Divi is a massively customizable theme because there are plenty of opportunities in each section to implement new unique designs. A website has many sections like header, footer, body, etc. Among them, the header section is one of the most important because it contains links to important pages on your site that potential customers will often want to visit. Also, it delivers key points about your website that encourage your customer to explore further. In today's tutorial, you will see how you can add a hamburger menu toggle on the top navigation header menu. We generally know that the hamburger menu is used for small screen sizes. But today, we will see it in desktop mode. Let's not waste more time and start our today's tutorial.
