Disable Mobile Menu (Hamburger Menu) in Menu Module Divi Theme

Nov 5, 2020 | Blog, Divi Tutorial | 11 comments

In this article I will share the steps to hide or disable the hamburger menu in the menu module in the Divi theme.

By default the menu will turn into a dropdown mobile menu with the hamburger icon. The hamburger icon when clicked will open the dropdown and show the menu items.

The menu module turns into the hamburger menu on Tablets and Phones by default. Which means under 980px you will see the dropdown mobile menu instead of the regular menu items that you see on desktops.

If you want to show the desktop menu even on smaller screens then we can accomplish this with a short piece of css code.

Add CSS Class to Disable Hamburger Menu in Menu Module

The first step is to add a CSS Class to the menu module so we can target this specific menu module and not affect any other menu modules on the website.

Please open the Menu Module Settings > Advanced > CSS ID & Classes and then add the CSS Class lwp-hide-mobile-menu to it.

If you are not sure where to add the CSS Class then here is a screenshot to help you.

Add CSS Code to Hide Hamburger Menu in Theme Options

Next go to your Dashboard > Divi > Theme Options > Custom CSS and add the below code in it. This will disable the hamburger menu on both tablets and phones and show the default desktop menu.

.lwp-hide-mobile-menu.et_pb_menu .et_pb_menu__menu,.lwp-hide-mobile-menu.et_pb_fullwidth_menu .et_pb_menu__menu {
    display: flex!important;
}

.lwp-hide-mobile-menu .et_mobile_nav_menu {
    display: none;
}

Please check the screenshot below to understand where to add the code.

Divi Custom CSS Theme Options

If you want to disable the hamburger menu only on tablets then you can use the code below. In this code we are only targeting the tablet resolution so phones will show the hamburger menu.

@media (min-width: 768px) and (max-width: 980px) {
    .lwp-hide-mobile-menu.et_pb_menu .et_pb_menu__menu,.lwp-hide-mobile-menu.et_pb_fullwidth_menu .et_pb_menu__menu {
        display: flex!important;
    }

    .lwp-hide-mobile-menu .et_mobile_nav_menu {
        display: none;
    }
}

CSS Code for Vertical Menu Module

By default the menu items will show side by side when you disable the hamburger menu, like the menu on Desktops.

If you want to show only one menu item per line then you can use the below code. You have to add this code after the code that you added above.

.lwp-hide-mobile-menu .et_pb_menu__menu > nav > ul > li {
    width:100%
}

If you want this code to only affect Phones then you can try this code instead.

@media (max-width: 767px) {
    .lwp-hide-mobile-menu .et_pb_menu__menu > nav > ul > li {
        width:100%
    }
}

    Hi there, thanks I finally did it! Do you know how to make all menu items into one line only on mobile view instead of breaking into few lines? Thanks!

    How do I center my vertical navigation after adding the CSS code? The navigation aligns to the left and I’ve done everything possible to align it to the center and nothing is working. Can you help me?

      The alignment of the menu can be set inside Menu Settings > Design > Menu Text > Text Alignment.

    Great article. This helped me a lot!

    One question I do have for you though,

    When I use this code, my text stays showing on mobile, but for some reason, the hamburger icon still shows side-by-side with the menu text.

    Any idea why this would be?

      It should hide the hamburger icon. Could you send a link to the page so I can take a look.
