In JA Resume Demo, each home page is a one-page, each menu item is linked to a section in the page. Here is steps to create the one-page menu. For example, we will create About Me menu item that link to Biography section.

Create About Me menu item. There are 2 important notes that you have to keep in mind.

1. Menu type = External URL
2. Add link for the menu item, use format: index.php?Itemid=101#about_me

The link includes 2 parts, the first part is the link of Home menu item (default menu): index.php?Itemid=101, "101" is the Home menu id. And the second part is module name (alias) - about_me that menu navigates to when clicking on.

Do the same to create other menu items.

2.1 Off-canvas Sidebar

There are 2 steps to activate Off-canvas as mobile menu.

To enable Off-canvas sidebar, go to JA Resume template style » Addon-ons and enable the Off-canvas sidebar option.

Next, create Menu module and assign to the off-canvas position. Check out the module settings below:

Module Suffix: NOT USED

Back-end Settings

Create "More" menu item that show Off-canvas sidebar

In demo site, when you click on "More" menu item, it will show Off-canvas sidebar, this is custom function.

The custom function is based on JS code added in the file: templates\ja_resume\js\script.js, check out the JS code below:

// Full-nav click to show off-canvas menu
(function($){
  $(document).ready(function(){
    jQuery('body').on('click', function(e) {
      if (jQuery(e.target).is('a[href="#full-nav"]')){
        $('.off-canvas-toggle').trigger('tap', e);
        e.stopPropagation();
        e.preventDefault();
        return false;
      }
    });
    jQuery('.off-canvas-toggle').on('tap', function() {
		if (isMobile.tablet)
	    	jQuery('.t3-header').css( 'margin-top', (jQuery(window).scrollTop())+'px');
    });
  });
  // off click for full-nav
  $(window).load(function(){
    setTimeout(function(){
      $('a[href="#full-nav"]').off();
    },100);
  })
})(jQuery);

To have same menu item, create new menu item, select menu type: External URL and add link: #full-nav.
