Remove Squarespace Navigation completely and replace it with Custom Code?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! I was wondering if it is at all possible (without the use of developer mode) to remove the entire Squarespace navigation and replace it with custom code. I have created custom code that I like better but I am not sure how to go about changing it. 

Thanks a lot in advance.

Well very generally you could do a couple of things.

One would be to remove SS navigation through Javascript. Then add your custom code to Settings > Advanced > Code Injection > FOOTER to add your menu in.

Alternately you could add some CSS to hide the SS built-in nav and then add your custom code in.

If your site is not public please set up a site-wide password, if you've not already done so. Post the password here.

If you could post your custom menu code we might be able to tell where you are currently and possibly suggest what to do next.

I was following a tutorial recreating Apple's navigation.

The result is :

HTML:

<header>
<div class="container">
<nav class="nav">
<ul class="nav-list nav-list-mobile">
<li class="nav-item">
<div class="mobile-menu">
<span class="line line-top"></span>
<span class="line line-bottom"></span>
</div>
</li>
<li class="nav-item">
    <a href="index.html" class="nav-link nav-link-apple"></a>
</li>
<li class="nav-item">
    <a href="#" class="nav-link nav-link-bag"></a>
</li>
</ul>
<!--/nav-list nav-list-mobile-->
<ul class="nav-list nav-list-larger">
<li class="nav-item nav-item-hidden">
    <a href="index.html" class="nav-link nav-link-apple"></a>
</li>
<li class="nav-item">
    <a href="#" class="nav-link">Mac</a>
</li>
<li class="nav-item">
    <a href="#" class="nav-link">Ipad</a>
</li>
<li class="nav-item">
    <a href="#" class="nav-link">iPhone</a>
</li>
<li class="nav-item">
    <a href="#" class="nav-link">Watch</a>
</li>
<li class="nav-item">
    <a href="#" class="nav-link">Tv</a>
</li>
<li class="nav-item">
    <a href="#" class="nav-link">Music</a>
</li>
<li class="nav-item">
    <a href="#" class="nav-link">Support</a>

}

JS:

const selectElement = (element) => document.querySelector(element);

selectElement('.mobile-menu').addEventListener('click', () => {
  selectElement('header').classList.toggle('active');
});

Thank you for your help!
