BindMENU 2.0 for BindTuning Themes

Now supporting more menu styles, with better animation and customization options, the new Bind Menu for BindTuning theme’s new menu suits the most demanding requirements.

What's new: 

Animations

You can now control the type, speed and fly-in method of our submenu animations. These options allow the user to have an unprecedented level of animation control inside SharePoint.

Navigation Item Limiter

Are vast amounts of menu items clogging up your menu? The new Bind Menu includes a new feature that allows you to set a maximum number of navigation items and all the remaining ones will be hidden away inside their own sub-menu.

Sidebar Width

In large screens, we’ve come across a problem where the sidebar occupies way too much space on our workspace due to bootstrap’s grid limitations. So we’ve made it customizable, now you can select either a normal or a slimmer version of the sidebar.

Off-canvas Sidebar

Another issue with the sidebar is that it doesn’t collapse on mobile like our horizontal navigation. Well, now it does. We’ve created a universal method to hide away the sidebar either on phone or tablet that safely tucks its away off-screen and accessible by the press of a button.

Collapsible Menu

All our themes will be updated to use bootstrap’s collapsible menu, select menus on mobile will become deprecated.

Customization options
