Navmenu is a vertical navigation component. By default it shares it look and feel with the navmenu component.

Custom width

The navmenu is 300px wide by default. You can change this by customizing the @navmenu-width variable or by setting the width of .navmenu in your CSS.

<nav class="navmenu navmenu-default" role="navigation">
  <a class="navmenu-brand" href="#">Brand</a>

  <ul class="nav navmenu-nav">
    <li class="active"><a href="#">Link</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Link</a></li>
    <li class="dropdown">
      <a href="#" class="dropdown-toggle" data-toggle="dropdown">Dropdown <b class="caret"></b></a>
      <ul class="dropdown-menu navmenu-nav" role="menu">
        <li><a href="#">Action</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Another action</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Something else here</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Separated link</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">One more separated link</a></li>

Make navmenus accessible

Be sure to add a role="navigation" to every navmenu to help with accessibility.

Add either .navmenu-fixed-left or .navmenu-fixed-right.

<nav class="navmenu navmenu-default navmenu-fixed-left offcanvas-sm" role="navigation">

Body padding required

The fixed navmenu will overlay your other content, unless you add padding to the left or right of the <body>. Try out your own values or use our snippet below. Tip: By default, the navmenu is 300px wide.

@media (min-width: 992px) {
  body {
    padding-left: 300px;

Make sure to include this after the Jasny Bootstrap CSS.

With the offcanvas plugin, you can hide the navmenu off canvas. This is especially useful for screens with a small viewport.
