NAVIGATION - Choosing between the sidebar and horizontal navigation

This article only applies to the theme Kagami.

Kagami comes with two default navigation: the sidebar and the horizontal navigation. Both looks awesome, but depending on your customers, one layout may be more appropriate than the other. For instance, elderly may have a bit more difficulty to use the sidebar, while young people will feel at ease!

Please note as well that, in smaller devices (like mobiles and tablets), we always display the navigation as sidebar, as it is a common pattern on such devices, and it allows to optimize the screen space.

To switch between navigation types, open the Theme Editor, and choose the "General settings" tab. Then, click on the "Navigation" section:

The first option, called "Navigation mode", allows you to switch between those navigation modes. You will also find additional settings to further customize either of the two modes.
