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="">
        Emilie George
      </a>
  </li>
  <li class="Menu-cell u-md-size1of2">
    <a class="Menu-item" href="">
        Louis Shelton
      </a>
  </li>
  <li class="Menu-cell u-md-size1of2">
    <a class="Menu-item" href="">
        Jared Lloyd
      </a>
  </li>
  <li class="Menu-cell u-md-size1of2">
    <a class="Menu-item" href="">
        Ernest Greene
      </a>
  </li>
  <li class="Menu-cell u-md-size1of2">
    <a class="Menu-item" href="">
        Flora Robbins
      </a>
  </li>
  <li class="Menu-cell u-md-size1of2">
    <a class="Menu-item" href="">
        Susan Franklin
      </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="#">
      Lettie Stevens
    </a>
  </li>
  <li class="Menu-cell">
    <a class="Menu-item"

      href="#">
      Henry Houston
    </a>
  </li>
  <li class="Menu-cell">
    <a class="Menu-item"
      aria-current="page"
      href="#">
      Delia Mathis
    </a>
  </li>
  <li class="Menu-cell">
    <a class="Menu-item"

      href="#">
      Georgie Hansen
    </a>
  </li>
  <li class="Menu-cell">
    <a class="Menu-item"

      href="#">
      Rosa Ryan
    </a>
  </li>
  <li class="Menu-cell">
    <a class="Menu-item"

      href="#">
      Hilda Shaw
    </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="">
        Jane Goodman
      </a>
    <ul class="Menu Menu--nested">
      <li class="Menu-cell">
        <a class="Menu-item" href="">
              Carrie Lowe
            </a>
      </li>
      <li class="Menu-cell">
        <a class="Menu-item" href="">
              Joshua Hardy
            </a>
      </li>
      <li class="Menu-cell">
        <a class="Menu-item" href="">
              Alta Norton
            </a>
      </li>
    </ul>
  </li>
  <li class="Menu-cell">
    <a class="Menu-item" href="">
        Phoebe Powell
      </a>
    <ul class="Menu Menu--nested">
      <li class="Menu-cell">
        <a class="Menu-item" href="">
              Bernard Aguilar
            </a>
      </li>
      <li class="Menu-cell">
        <a class="Menu-item" href="">
              Kyle Erickson
            </a>
      </li>
      <li class="Menu-cell">
        <a class="Menu-item" href="">
              Christian Cole
            </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="">
          Jennie Pearson
        </a>
    </li>
    <li class="Menu-cell u-md-size1of2">
      <a class="Menu-item" href="">
          Dylan Robertson
        </a>
    </li>
    <li class="Menu-cell u-md-size1of2">
      <a class="Menu-item" href="">
          Randy Hicks
        </a>
    </li>
    <li class="Menu-cell u-md-size1of2">
      <a class="Menu-item" href="">
          Amelia Roberts
        </a>
    </li>
    <li class="Menu-cell u-md-size1of2">
      <a class="Menu-item" href="">
          Max Walton
        </a>
    </li>
    <li class="Menu-cell u-md-size1of2">
      <a class="Menu-item" href="">
          Owen Cross
        </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%231B75BC%22%20width%3D%22100%25%22%20height%3D%22100%25%22%2F%3E%3Ctext%20fill%3D%22%23dcedfa%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="">
