The Primary navigation is a list of anchors and menu buttons wrapped by the HTML <nav> element.

The navbar is built to sit inside the Header container, which is given a fixed position.

There are two reference implementations --- one for Portal and the other for Tracker.

See examples below:

These share the same Navbar component.

The menu contains:

  • The Bugcrowd ‘hex’ logo as a link to home
  • A primary navigation, broken up into:
    • PrimaryMenuMobile, as a dropdown menu accessible from a hamburger menu panel button, hidden at ≥md breakpoint
    • A copy of the menu, displayed only ≥md breakpoints
  • A user menu grouping, including (if signed-in):
    • An icon (bell) link to the user’s notifications + unread marker (Tracker only), which will also display the unread marker if it is passed the string ‘1000+‘
    • The user’s main dropdown menu (UserMenu), as button holding their avatar

Active/current page or section handling

A LinkItem receives a modifier class if the user is currently on the page for said item. This also applies if the user is deeper within a given top-level section.

You can override/supplement this functionality by setting your own activePathMatcher using regular expressions.

For an example, see the ‘Researchers’ primary menu item defined in NavbarTrackerExample.
