In today’s fast-paced digital world, having a website that provides an exceptional user experience is crucial for any business or brand. And when it comes to creating a user-friendly navigation menu, incorporating iconic menu items can make all the difference. With Elementor, maximizing your website’s user experience has never been easier. In this blog post, we’ll explore how you can use iconic menu items to enhance your site’s usability and create an unforgettable first impression that keeps visitors coming back for more. So let’s dive in!
Creating a menu in Elementor
Assuming you already have a website built with Elementor, the first step is to create a new page or edit an existing one. Then, drag and drop the “Menu” element from the left sidebar onto your page.
Once the menu is in place, you can start adding menu items. To do this, click on the “Add Item” button and enter the text for your menu item. You can also add a link to each menu item, which can be helpful if you want to direct users to specific pages on your site.
If you want to change the look of your menu, you can do so by clicking on the “Style” tab in the left sidebar. Here, you can adjust things like the font size, colors, and spacing.
Once you’re happy with how your menu looks, be sure to save your page and publish it so that visitors to your site will be able to see it.
Adding icons to menu items
Adding icons to menu items is a great way to improve the user experience of your website. By adding an icon next to each menu item, you can help visitors find their way around your site more easily.
There are two ways to add icons to menu items in Elementor: using the default WordPress menu system, or using the Elementor Menu widget.
If you’re using the default WordPress menu system, you can add an icon to any menu item by going to the Menus section of the WordPress Customizer and selecting the “Menu Item Icons” option. Then, simply click on the menu item you want to add an icon to and select an icon from the list.
If you’re using the Elementor Menu widget, you can add icons to your menu items by clicking on the “Icon” option in the widget’s settings. Then, simply select an icon for each menu item from the list.
Customizing the icon size and color
As you probably know, one of the most important aspects of a website’s user experience is the navigation. If your visitors can’t find their way around your site, they’re likely to leave and never come back.
That’s why it’s so important to have a well-designed menu that is easy to navigate. And one of the best ways to do this is with iconic menu items.
Iconic menu items are those little icons that you see in some menus that help you quickly identify where you are and what you’re looking for. They’re usually small and simple, but they can make a big difference in the user experience.
If you’re using Elementor, there are a few different ways you can customize the icon size and color. First, let’s take a look at how to change the size…
Making the icons clickable
As we mentioned before, one of the benefits of using icons in your menu is that they’re clickable. This means that visitors can click on them to be taken to the relevant page or section of your website.
To make an icon clickable in Elementor, simply select it and then click on the ‘Link’ option in the left-hand sidebar. Here you can enter the URL of the page you want to link to.
Alternatively, if you want to link to a specific section of a page, you can enter the CSS ID or class name in the ‘Link’ field. For example, if you want to link to the ‘About us’ section of your homepage, you would enter ‘#about-us’ in the ‘Link’ field.
Once you’ve entered the URL or CSS ID/class name, click on the ‘OK’ button and then save your changes.
Your icon should now be clickable and take visitors to the page or section you specified.
Adding hover effects to icons
When it comes to creating a great user experience on your website, one of the key elements is your menu items. In particular, your icons can play a big role in how easy it is for visitors to navigate your site and find what they’re looking for.
One way to make your icons more user-friendly is to add hover effects. This can help guide users’ attention to the items you want them to notice, and it can also add a touch of fun and personality to your site.
To add hover effects toicons in Elementor, simply go to the icon’s settings and choose the desired effect from the “Hover” drop-down menu. There are a variety of different options to choose from, so experiment until you find the perfect one for your site.
Maximizing your website’s user experience with iconic menu items in Elementor is an easy and effective way to create a great online presence.
