Menus

All you need to know about menus in YOOtheme Pro.

Menus and menu locations can be managed in the Menus panel of the WordPress customizer. YOOtheme Pro provides two menu locations, several widget areas where menus appear in different styles, and a way to create text-only menu items.


There are two menu locations available in YOOtheme Pro.

Menu Location Description
Navbar The main menu of the website that shows up in the regular header.
Mobile The menu that shows up in the mobile header on smaller devices.

Manage the appearance of both menus in the corresponding Header and Mobile panels.

Note Instead of using the menu locations, you still can publish a menu widget on the Navbar or Mobile widget area. This can come in handy if you have to use the advanced settings of a menu widget.


Menu widgets can be published in several widget areas.

Widget Area Description
navbar mobile The menu appears in the Navbar or Mobile location. This is an alternative way to publish a menu.
toolbar-left toolbar-right The menu appears as a horizontal subnav. Only level 1 menu items are shown.
sidebar top bottom The menu appears as a horizontal subnav or as a vertical nav depending on the Menu Style setting for the menu widget. When rendered as a sidebar, an accordion effect is added to text menu items to show their sub items.

Text Menu Item

You can create a menu item which contains only text and no link. Just add a Custom Link as menu item and enter # for the URL field. This is very useful for the following two cases.

Menu Description
Navbar Menu A text menu item allows you to display a dropdown on hover or click without it being linked to a page.
Sidebar Menu An accordion effect is added to text menu items to show their sub items.
