Themes all have their own navigation menus built-in, but blank themes typically do not include a flexible menu. There are a number alternative navigation stacks available, but they all have their pros and cons.
A website's navigation system is possibly the most important aspect of any site design. If end users are faced with a navigation menu that's difficult to use, they will often navigate away to another website. A menu should look and feel as if it were an integral part of a completed web design; rather than giving an impression of something that was added as an afterthought!
Gator is derived from the same menu code that ThemeFlood themes have been using in for over 10 years, so you can be sure that it is tried and tested. This stack is expertly developed and includes a number of features never seen in other navigation stacks before. Particular emphasis has been placed on ease of setup, durability, user accessibility, responsive behaviour and flexible styling.
Gator can take the navigation links most RapidWeaver themes generate. Alternatively you can use our HTML markup as a template for custom-building your own menu structure. Menu types like tabs, nav bars, vertical blocks and even a simple multi-column mega menu are all achievable using Gator.
Common navigation problems Gator can provide a solution for include:
Settings for Gator are split into 6 groups, ordered conveniently for experts working from a mobile-first principle:
1. General settings
2. Accessibility settings
3. Mobile menu settings
4. Desktop nav bar settings
5. Drop-down menu settings
6. Additional content
If you've tried other stacks but are looking for something different then take a look at Gator. This is a navigator stack that won't disappoint. A fully functioning free demo version is available for download. This free demo will help you experiment with all that Gator can do.
Beyond the standard set of style options provided in Gator, much can be accomplished by placing Gator inside other stacks such as 'sticky' bars and help is available for simple CSS modifications you want to make.
Gator is also available as a free variant for use in premium ThemeFlood themes, such as RWSkinz.
