Step #3 - Add Responsive CSS Codes

The third step, you must add responsive style codes to the your menu. If you theme or template has been ready responsive, please do not use @media tags just use our responsive style codes. You can test this menu with any responsive design tools or resize your web browsers.


@media only screen and (min-width: 768px) and (max-width: 959px) { 
#nav {width: 768px}
#nav { height:70px; }
#nav li a {
	line-height:70px;
	height:70px;
	font-size:12px !important;
	padding:0 10px !important;
}

#nav ul li {
	height:40px;
}

#nav ul li a,#nav ul li ul a {
	font-size:12px !important;
	line-height:40px;
}
	
#nav ul a {
	height:40px;
}
}

@media only screen and (max-width: 767px) { 
#nav {
	display:none;
}
.tinynav{		
	width: 300px !important; 
	display: table;
	margin:0 auto;
	font-size:16px;
	border-radius: 0 !important;		 
	background:#fff; 			
}
}

@media only screen and (min-width: 480px) and (max-width: 767px) {
#nav {
	display:none;
}
.tinynav{		
	width: 420px !important; 
	display: table;
	margin:0 auto;
	font-size:16px;
	border-radius: 0 !important;		 
	background:#fff; 			
}
nav.primary li:after,
nav.primary a {
    font-size: 12px;
    padding: 0 3px;
}
nav.primary li {line-height:1}
}

Step #4 - Add jQuery Codes
