When you create a responsive website you need to use a responsive menu as well. It’s actually the menu that makes the site responsive or not. Many times the menu will not function as what it intends to be which may be caused by a faulty installation. Should you have someone else design your website and noticed that something does not work right, you can try and fix it yourself. Creating a tree menu is really easy, but making sure it is responsive is a bit complicated.
A responsive navigation is actually a menu that will work no matter what browser you’re using. While most people will use two main browsers, there are a few who use others and their favorite sites won’t work. If your site uses a dropdown menu, depending on the browser, it may or may not open. Should it open, you may not be able to click any link. Most people prefer the vertical menu for their sites, but here you can find at least one CSS3 tutorial for a horizontal menu, should you need one.
