  • the three lines displayed in top left is called hamburger menu. This the standard way of displaying responsive menu. However you can still put text instead of 3 lines in vendor\magento\module-theme\view\frontend\templates\html\header\logo.phtml(you need to override this file in custom theme/module) and add/remove some css – Sejal Shah Jul 10 '17 at 9:44

Override the file in your theme like this:


and edit the code like this:

<span data-action="toggle-nav" class="action nav-toggle"><span><?php /* @escapeNotVerified */ echo __('Your Text') ?></span></span>

and add this css:

 .nav-toggle {
        font-size: inherit;
        content: "";
    .nav-toggle > span{
          position: relative;

Changing Three lines/bar to text

1) In your extended theme inside magento_theme module as below make some edit in logo.phtml


There is a line

<span data-action="toggle-nav" class="action nav-toggle"><span><?php /* @escapeNotVerified */ echo __('Toggle Nav') ?></span></span>

Write your Text at place of Toggle Nav

<span data-action="toggle-nav" class="action nav-toggle"><span><?php /* @escapeNotVerified */ echo __('Store Menu') ?></span></span>

2) CSS Updates in your _extend.less under below path


Update below classes with following styles or more as you need you can

.nav-toggle > span{

Keep the menu link on nav bar

Cut the above code we changed to display text instead of three bars

<span data-action="toggle-nav" class="action nav-toggle"><span><?php /* @escapeNotVerified */ echo __('Store Menu') ?></span></span>

Paste this code to sections.phtml under this path


Now update above CSS


I hope this will help you out, let me know if any problem

Run upgrade/deploy/cache commands to see CSS changes

    Nav bar lies in "sections container" so to place menu link in nav bar we place it sections. By defaults it comes in "header content " container – Manoj Deswal Jul 11 '17 at 4:02
