Using Navigation Bar Pro v2

Dark Mode

Dark Mode
When enabled you'll be given additional options throughout the Navigation Bar's settings that allow you to customize the Navigation Bar's styling for visitors who have Dark Mode enabled in their computer's OS or browser.

  • Please Note: Features marked with the purple moon icon will include color picker(s) for Dark Mode when Dark Mode is enabled.

Navigation Bar

Inner Width Type
You can choose between a fixed-width for the inner portion of the Nav Bar Pro stack or make it fluid. Fluid allows the contents of the stack to stretch out to the full-width, while fixed-width option allows you to set your own maximum width for the inner content.

Inner Max-Width
Set the maximum width you desire for your navigation items when using Fixed-Width as your inner container type.

Height
Set the height of the navigation bar at each of the three breakpoints. This allows you more control and flexibility over your design.

Rounded Corners
Used to set the border radius for the navigation bar at each of the three individual breakpoints. The border radius amount is applied to each of the four corners.

Sticky Navigation
Use this feature to allow the navigation to remain anchored to the top of the browser window as your visitor scrolls down the page. The navigation becomes "sticky" and anchors itself to the browser when the visitor has scrolled down the page enough so that the navigation touches the top of the browser window. Nav Bar Pro allows you to style various aspects of the navigation differently when the navigation bar is "stuck" and when it is not.

Background
Used to set your navigation bar's background color.

Sticky Background
Used to set your navigation bar's background color when the navigation bar is stuck to the top of the browser window. This is applied only if you have enabled Sticky Navigation.

Enable Shadow
Allows you to apply a drop shadow to the navigation bar when enabled.

Shadow Size, Offset & Color
Adjust the styling for your drop shadow when you've enabled the shadow feature.

Enable Sticky Shadow
Allows you to add a drop shadow to the navigation bar when it is "stuck" to the top of the browser window. This allows you to choose whether you have a shadow while the navigation is "stuck" and how it should be styled.

Shadow Size, Offset & Color (Sticky)
Adjust the styling for your drop shadow when you've enabled the sticky shadow feature. These stylings will be applied when the navigation bar is "stuck."

Navigation Bar Layout

Nav Bar Pro is broken up into 3 different zones. Zone 1 is on the left, zone 2 is in the middle and zone 3 is on the right. These zones can contain different content, have set sizes, as well as be hidden at different breakpoints. This gives you a high level of customization.

Zone 1
This section contains three drop downs for selecting Zone 1's content at each of the three responsive breakpoints. Each of the breakpoints can be set independently to one of the following choices:

  • Site Title
  • Logo
  • Title Toggle (Site Title with toggle for drop down)
  • Logo and Title
  • Toggle (for drop down)
  • Icons
  • Navigation Items
  • None

Zone 1 Min-Width
Use these three vales to set a minimum width for Zone 1 at each of the responsive breakpoints. This allows you to ensure that the content in Zone 1 will always be at least this wide so your content is visible.

Note: Zone 2 bases its width off of the remainder from Zone 1 and Zone 3.

Example

If Zone 1's minimum width is set to 25% and Zone 3's minimum width is set to 25% then Zone 2's width will be 50% as 25% + 25% + 50% equals 100%.

Zone 1 Alignment
Allows you to set the alignment of Zone 1's content to be left, center or right. This alignment is relative to the Zone's location and width. You can set the alignment uniformly or independently at each of the three responsive breakpoints.

Zone 2
This section contains three drop downs for selecting Zone 2's content at each of the three responsive breakpoints. Each of the breakpoints can be set independently to one of the following choices:

  • Site Title
  • Logo
  • Toggle (for drop down)
  • Icons
  • Navigation Items
  • None

Zone 2 Alignment
Allows you to set the alignment of Zone 2's content to be left, center or right. This alignment is relative to the Zone's location and width. You can set the alignment uniformly or independently at each of the three responsive breakpoints.

Zone 3
This section contains three drop downs for selecting Zone 3's content at each of the three responsive breakpoints. Each of the breakpoints can be set independently to one of the following choices:

  • Site Title
  • Logo
  • Title Toggle (Site Title with toggle for drop down)
  • Logo and Title
  • Toggle (for drop down)
  • Icons
  • Navigation Items
  • None

Zone 3 Min-Width
Use these three values to set a minimum width for Zone 3 at each of the responsive breakpoints. This allows you to ensure that the content in Zone 3 will always be at least this wide so your content is visible.

Note: Zone 2 bases its width off of the remainder from Zone 1 and Zone 3.

Example

If Zone 1's minimum width is set to 30% and Zone 3's minimum width is set to 30% then Zone 2's width will be 40% as 30% + 30% + 40% equals 100%.

Zone 3 Alignment
Allows you to set the alignment of Zone 3's content to be left, center or right. This alignment is relative to the Zone's location and width. You can set the alignment uniformly or independently at each of the three responsive breakpoints.

Auto Min-Width when Zone 2 is Hidden
Enabling this setting will automatically set Zone 1 and Zone 3's minimum widths to 50% whenever Zone 2's content is set to None.

Show Zone Borders
Enabling this feature is a good way to see how wide your Zones are in Preview Mode. This can help you plan out your layouts at each of the three responsive breakpoints. Be sure to disable this feature before publishing your site!

Insight
The Dark Side

The Nav Bar Pro stack includes its own custom Dark Mode color pickers, separate from those in the Control Center stack, as Nav Bar Pro is not directly connected to the Foundry Preset Brand Colors.

These Dark Mode color pickers let you optionally customize the way your navigation looks depending on whether your visitors are using a browser or OS that supports Dark Mode.
