In this tutorial I will show you how to collapse other Divi mobile menu submenus when another submenu is opened!

FYI: You can do this with a setting directly in the Divi Builder with our popular Divi Responsive Helper plugin! Take a look, it is so easy!

Add The Required JQuery

This tutorial will be quite short since it is like an addon for the previous tutorial. Only one step is required for this, and it is to copy the jQuery snippet below and placing it into your Divi website. I recommend placing it in the same location as the other jQuery used to collapse the mobile menus submenu, that way it will be nicely organized.

Where To Paste The jQuery Code

1. Divi Assistant
If you are using our Divi Assistant plugin, simply paste the code in the jQuery tab in the custom code window in the Divi Visual Builder.

2. Child Theme
If you are using a child theme, paste this code into the scripts.js file (don't forget to remove the <script> tags at the beginning and end). If you don't have a child theme, you can generate a child theme directly on your site or download our free child theme.

3. Divi Theme Options Integration
Otherwise, paste this code in your Divi>Theme Options>Integrations tab in the "Add code to the < head > of your blog" code area.

If you need help understanding where to paste the code, please check out our complete guide about where to add custom code In Divi.

		jQuery(' .sub-menu').removeClass('visible');

After the code is placed, you can check your site and see the result. Simply toggle open one of the submenus, then toggle open another one, and the first one will close. Without this code, they both would be open, so adding this code is really good for user experinces, and I hope you enjoy it!

        Hi there,

        Great job, love your tutorials.

        Is there an update on the issue addressed above?

        The Menu is broken after adding the Toggle code.

    This script makes it impossible to collapse the 2 level menu, the 2nd level is expanded by default and can’t be collapsed 🙁

    Can you fix it?

    I’m already using some of your menu guides to style my mobile menu on my website. However, same as someone else here, my 2nd level submenu is expanded by default as well when opening the 1st level submenu. Is there an additional code to fix this?
