Client Menu can display any Drupal menu to selected user-roles of your choice. That allows you to build a user-friendly menu for your clients and managers. It has clean and minimalist design and it’s optimized for all devices and resolutions.
Client Menu has few configuration settings that can be accessed by visiting
Administration » Configuration » User interface » Client Menu
or by typing
youstie.com/admin/config/user-interface/client_menu on your browser url.
Some of the basic settings are:
- Drupal Menu to be used as Client Menu
- Display/Hide Home link
- Display/Hide Logout link
- Sticky menu (fixed top positioning)
- Mobile menu options. Whether to use jQuery TinyNav or jQuery MMenu.
- The module visibility and access can be controlled from the Drupal’s user permissions page.
Client Menu automatically adapts to the device display size and resolution. Featuring two configurable solutions for mobile navigation. The first solution converts the links to select option elements using the jQuery TinyNav library. While the second solution creates a “mobile app look-alike” menu using the jQuery MMenu library.

Differences between Client Menu and Administration Menu:
- Administration Menu is built for administrators, Client Menu is built for clients and managers. Administration Menu can only display the “Management Menu” while Client Menu can be configured to display any Drupal menu. That gives you full control of how and which links are displayed.
- Administration Menu is not responsive while Client Menu is both responsive and mobile optimized.
