In many situations, the main menu of a site may be too big for consumption on a mobile device. One of the many techniques to make a menu responsive and mobile-friendly, is to have the menu transform into a 'hamburger'-style icon (hence, the 'hamburger' menu name) once the site's viewport becomes too small.

The selection of the hamburger icon then results in the opening of a pane, which contains the then hidden menu.

The Bare 960 Responsive template features that functionality out of the box.

Adding a pictogramme to a menu item is visually appealing and useful to visitors of a site.
Joomla!'s core allows the use of images for such task (link image parameter), but font icons have a definite advantage over them:

  • Icons resize and look sharp on any device,
  • their color can be changed easily through the use of CSS,
  • no more loading of images,
  • the icons may already be loaded on the page through the template's fonts.

Any Simplify Your Web extension that relies on the lib_syw external library

Once in a while users come across a blank screen on the public side of their website. Rarely they may have the same experience on some administrator console pages.

While this could be a bug introduced by the latest extension update, it actually is most likely an issue with the external library that is necessary for most of our extensions to work.

Although a major issue (since it may crash the site on some pages), it is easily fixable.
