The navbar of your website

Navbar fragment can show a logo/image, a menu with support for external links and a special icon link useful for linking to Github or Gitlab.

Note: Search doesn’t look very good in this page because there are two navbars in the page which is not expected. Please use search in other pages.

Back to top
fragment = "nav"
#disabled = true
date = "2018-05-17"
weight = 110
background = "secondary"
search = true
#sticky = true # Default is false

  display = true # Default value is false
  #level = 0 # Default is 1
  background = "light"

# Branding options
  image = "logo.svg"
  text = "Syna"

  url = ""
  text = "Star" # default: "Star"
  icon = "fab fa-github" # defaults: "fab fa-github"



Use one instance of this fragment per page. Running more might lead to unexpected issues.

  • .Site.Menus.main

    Note: Menus displayed in the nav fragment can be nested, in which case the nested menus are displayed in a dropdown. Please see “nesting” section of Menus documentation in Hugo documentation.
