If you’re building your header inside Divi, there are quite a few ways to go about it. As a matter of fact, you can get an overview on header types and tutorials here. Now, in today’s tutorial, we’re adding another option to your list. We’ll show you how to add a hamburger icon toggle to DIvi’s Menu Module. This hamburger icon appears, by default, on smaller screen sizes already, but in this tutorial, we’ll make sure a hamburger icon appears on desktop as well. When clicking the hamburger icon, all menu items will appear in a horizontal order next to the icon. This gives a minimal look and feel to your header while adding interaction as well. You will be able to download the template JSON file for free as well!
Let’s get to it.

Final Thoughts
In this post, we’ve shown you how to get creative with your Divi header inside the Divi Theme Builder. More specifically, we’ve shown you how to add a hamburger menu icon toggle on desktop as well. By default, a hamburger icon is part of the tablet and mobile experience, but we’re extending this to desktop as well. When clicking the toggle icon, the menu items will appear in a horizontal order, which gives this a minimal look and feel. You were able to download the template JSON file for free as well!
