Create a fly-out / off-canvas menu #

Step 1 – The Off-Canvas widget is a powerful tool that offers flexibility in creating mobile menus. To create a fly-out or off-canvas (sidebar) menu that is represented by a hamburger icon in the header, you can use our Off-Canvas Widget in Elementor. This widget allows you to create a variety of mobile menus. The off-canvas widget is linked to an Elementor template that represents the sidebar menu. To modify the Elementor template, select the Off-Canvas widget and you will see a link to edit the template.

Step 2 – The menu template can be edited by going on the front-end of your site and click Edit With Elementor > Off-Canvas. You can also find all the templates and create new ones in WP-Admin > Templates.

Step 3 – The appearance and styling of the off-canvas are set by editing the off-canvas widget > Style tab. The content of the off-canvas is set by editing its template.

Pro Tip: Everytime you want to edit a header, footer or off-canvcas menu within Elementor, and you are lost, go on your site’s front-end and click Edit With Elementor > and select the template you want to edit.
