The Magic of CSS

Now lets start to dazzle things up a bit with some CSS.

If you are working with a child theme you can go to Appearance>Editor and open your stylesheet. If not, go to Appearance>Divi Theme Options>ePanel>Custom CSS (which is located at the bottom of the ePanel)

If you want the menu button with text and the hamburger icon, add this CSS.


/*------------------------------------------------*/
/*---------[GQ - MOBILE MENU BUTTON 1]------------*/
/*------------------------------------------------*/

	.mobile_menu_bar:before {
    		background-color: #3e4555;
    		padding: 2px 0px 2px 2px;
    		top: 9px;
    		color: #fff!important;}
	.mobile_menu_bar::after {
    		font-family: Arial;
    		content: "MENU";
    		position: relative;
    		padding: 10px 20px 10px 5px;
    		background-color: #3e4555;
    		color: #FFFFFF!important;
		cursor: pointer;}
	.mobile_nav.opened .mobile_menu_bar:before {
		content: "\4d";}
		

 

If you want the menu button with text and no hamburger icon, add this CSS.


/*------------------------------------------------*/
/*---------[GQ - MOBILE MENU BUTTON 2]------------*/
/*------------------------------------------------*/

	.mobile_menu_bar:before {
    		display:none}
	.mobile_menu_bar::after {
    		font-family: Arial;
    		content: "MENU";
    		position: relative;
    		padding: 10px 20px 10px 20px;
    		background-color: #3e4555;
    		color: #FFFFFF!important;
		cursor: pointer;}
	.mobile_nav.opened .mobile_menu_bar:after {
		content: "CLOSE";}


 

You can make the button larger and smaller by adjusting the padding. You can also change the text to whatever you want by changing the “content”.

And that’s it! Have fun!
