How to Open Off-Canvas Content Using Elementor Menu Widget

Elementor Mobile Menu widget is a new powerful Elementor widget that has been added in Premium Addons for Elementor plugin v4.10.32. It helps you to create a mobile navigation menu, add icon, image, Lottie animation or SVG draw to each menu item. Not just that, you can set the click action for each menu item to open a link or an off-canvas menu. This can be used if you want to open a sidebar or WooCommerce cart after your navbar menu item is clicked.

In this tutorial, we will show to to use Premium Mobile Menu widget and Off-Canvas widgets to create an off-canvas menu that is triggered by a menu item.


  • You will need Premium Addons Pro plugin installed and activated on your website.
  • Premium Addons works only with Elementor Page Builder plugin so you will need to have it installed and activated.
  • Make sure the two widgets are enabled so you can find it in the Elementor editor. To enable it navigate to WP Dashboard -> Premium Addons for Elementor tab -> Widgets & Add-ons -> Switch on the Mobile Menu and Off Canvas widgets.
