SlickNav will use jQuery for animations by default. If you wish to use Velocity.js for animating, be sure to include the library in your code before including SlickNav.

Menu Display

Without any additional configuration, both the original and mobile menus will be displayed. It is recommended to use media queries to hide the original menu and display the mobile menu when appropriate. Modernizr or similar can be used for graceful degradation.
For example:
.slicknav_menu {

@media screen and (max-width: 40em) {
    /* #menu is the original menu */
    .js #menu {

    .js .slicknav_menu {
