Responsive Navigation Menu Bar Design using only HTML & CSS

Hello readers, Today in this blog you’ll learn how to create a Responsive Navigation Menu using only HTML & CSS. Earlier I’ve shared a blog on how to create a Responsive Chatbox Widget. In this blog, I’m going to create a Responsive Navbar that is based on pure CSS.

You may have seen the Navigation Bar on many websites. Generally, A navigation bar is a user interface (UI) element within a webpage that includes links to other sections of the website. The navigation bar is the essential UI element of a website’s design.

In this program (Responsive Navigation Menu Bar Design), there is a navbar on the top of the webpage and in this navbar, there is a logo on the left side and some navigation links on the right side of the navbar. On the PC, these navigation links are aligned in a horizontal line but on mobile devices, these links are aligned vertically. This is a pure CSS program and I didn’t use JavaScript or any JavaScript library to create this Navigation Bar.


I used CSS @media property to make this navbar responsive for any devices – mobile, tab, and pc. You can watch a full video tutorial on this program (Responsive Navbar Design).

In the video, you have seen the Responsive Navbar and I hope you have understood the basic codes behind creating this Navbar. As you have seen, on the mobile devices these navigation links are aligned vertically and there is also shown a menu button that toggles the Navbar to hide or show. To make this icon as a toggle button, I used HTML <input type=”checkbox’> and control this checkbox with label tag.

If you like this program (Responsive Navigation Menu Bar or Navbar) and want to get source codes. You can easily get the source codes of this program. To get the source codes you just need to scroll down. You can use this navbar in your HTML pages, websites, and projects.

  1. This script is the FontAwesome CDN link for icons and it's an online CDN link so you must have to connected with the Internet to show or use icons. Otherwise, you can also download offline file to use as offline. And yes JavaScript is not used to make this Navigation Bar.

  2. Nice work bro. I copied the codes and made two changes only:

    1. Instead of "Brand" i wrote my work name
    2. Changed the names of the list items

    But, when i shrink the browser window, I do not get the menu button (which shows up as the 3 lines in the top right corner). I am using Google Chrome to view this. Any idea what can be wrong?
