Menu

Simple grid-based list of menu items intended for subnavigation. Columns can be controlled using u-size* utilities.

<ul class="Menu">
  <li class="Menu-cell u-md-size1of2">
    <a class="Menu-item" href="">
        Jane Powell
      </a>
  </li>
  <li class="Menu-cell u-md-size1of2">
    <a class="Menu-item" href="">
        Kyle Woods
      </a>
  </li>
  <li class="Menu-cell u-md-size1of2">
    <a class="Menu-item" href="">
        Josephine Hamilton
      </a>
  </li>
  <li class="Menu-cell u-md-size1of2">
    <a class="Menu-item" href="">
        Evan Cannon
      </a>
  </li>
  <li class="Menu-cell u-md-size1of2">
    <a class="Menu-item" href="">
        Vincent Gonzalez
      </a>
  </li>
  <li class="Menu-cell u-md-size1of2">
    <a class="Menu-item" href="">
        Kyle Smith
      </a>
  </li>
</ul>

It can be helpful to highlight the currently selected item in a menu.

We recommend using the aria-current attribute for this, but if that's not possible you can achieve the same styling with the is-current state class.

<ul class="Menu">
  <li class="Menu-cell">
    <a class="Menu-item"

      href="#">
      Theresa Harper
    </a>
  </li>
  <li class="Menu-cell">
    <a class="Menu-item"

      href="#">
      Amy Bowman
    </a>
  </li>
  <li class="Menu-cell">
    <a class="Menu-item"
      aria-current="page"
      href="#">
      Ann Wheeler
    </a>
  </li>
  <li class="Menu-cell">
    <a class="Menu-item"

      href="#">
      Lily Torres
    </a>
  </li>
  <li class="Menu-cell">
    <a class="Menu-item"

      href="#">
      Eric Bennett
    </a>
  </li>
  <li class="Menu-cell">
    <a class="Menu-item"

      href="#">
      Amanda Simpson
    </a>
  </li>
</ul>

You can nest Menus inside of other menus. When doing this you should include the Menu--nested modifier on the nested menus.

Theoretically you could create a very deeply nested menu structure, but in practice we don't recommend nesting menus more than 3 levels deep.

This pattern works best with single column menus.

<ul class="Menu">
  <li class="Menu-cell">
    <a class="Menu-item" href="">
        Lucinda Simpson
      </a>
    <ul class="Menu Menu--nested">
      <li class="Menu-cell">
        <a class="Menu-item" href="">
              Elnora Wade
            </a>
      </li>
      <li class="Menu-cell">
        <a class="Menu-item" href="">
              Celia Smith
            </a>
      </li>
      <li class="Menu-cell">
        <a class="Menu-item" href="">
              Kate Becker
            </a>
      </li>
    </ul>
  </li>
  <li class="Menu-cell">
    <a class="Menu-item" href="">
        Stephen Torres
      </a>
    <ul class="Menu Menu--nested">
      <li class="Menu-cell">
        <a class="Menu-item" href="">
              Jessie Clarke
            </a>
      </li>
      <li class="Menu-cell">
        <a class="Menu-item" href="">
              Jim Richardson
            </a>
      </li>
      <li class="Menu-cell">
        <a class="Menu-item" href="">
              Ada Jordan
            </a>
      </li>
    </ul>
  </li>
</ul>

By default the menu is horizontally aligned with other page content. If you'd prefer the menu cells to be horizontally aligned with other page content you can achieve this with the Menu--flush modifier.

Use care when using this modifier. It relies on negative margins, so may extend out of its container.

<div class="u-pad1">
  <h4>Flush Menu</h4>

  <ul class="Menu Menu--flush">
    <li class="Menu-cell u-md-size1of2">
      <a class="Menu-item" href="">
          Alan Garner
        </a>
    </li>
    <li class="Menu-cell u-md-size1of2">
      <a class="Menu-item" href="">
          Leo May
        </a>
    </li>
    <li class="Menu-cell u-md-size1of2">
      <a class="Menu-item" href="">
          Alan Jackson
        </a>
    </li>
    <li class="Menu-cell u-md-size1of2">
      <a class="Menu-item" href="">
          Eleanor Kim
        </a>
    </li>
    <li class="Menu-cell u-md-size1of2">
      <a class="Menu-item" href="">
          Caleb Bell
        </a>
    </li>
    <li class="Menu-cell u-md-size1of2">
      <a class="Menu-item" href="">
          Marion Gibbs
        </a>
    </li>
  </ul>
</div>

A more product-like menu display can be achieved using the optional Menu-object and Menu-label descendants.

<ul class="Menu">
  <li class="Menu-cell u-size1of2 u-md-size1of3 u-lg-size1of4">
    <a class="Menu-item" href="">
        <img class="Menu-object" src="data:image/svg+xml;charset=US-ASCII,%3Csvg%20xmlns%3D%22http%3A%2F%2Fwww.w3.org%2F2000%2Fsvg%22%20width%3D%22150%22%20height%3D%22150%22%20viewBox%3D%220%200%20150%20150%22%3E%3Crect%20fill%3D%22%23116bb1%22%20width%3D%22100%25%22%20height%3D%22100%25%22%2F%3E%3Ctext%20fill%3D%22%23c7e4fa%22%20font-family%3D%22sans-serif%22%20font-size%3D%2230%22%20dy%3D%2212%22%20font-weight%3D%22bold%22%20x%3D%2250%25%22%20y%3D%2250%25%22%20text-anchor%3D%22middle%22%3E%3C%2Ftext%3E%3C%2Fsvg%3E" alt="">
