Why You Might Need an Off-Canvas Module

There are several reasons why you might want to use an off-canvas menu. You can display a sub-menu located next to your page. It can even act as the sole navigation panel for your site.

Off-canvas navigation also allows you to display quick links to specific areas of your site. Thanks to the attractive structure of the off-canvas menu, this can make it easier for your visitors to find what they're looking for and keep them on your site longer.

It's also great for special offers or announcements. For example, an off-canvas menu allows you to showcase promotions without being too disruptive or distracting. You can also highlight an outstanding product or service.
