Clean Ecwid Horizontal Categories For Your Ecwid Store on Any Site

What Are Ecwid Horizontal Categories?

Ecwid Horizontal categories allow you to display your categories without images or titles. A simple piece of code will create a horizontal menu in your Ecwid store with sub-menus all in text format. It is a clean, mobile responsive way to display your Eciwd categories.

How to Setup Ecwid Horizontal Categories

To display horizontal categories on your website, follow the steps below:

  1. In your Ecwid backend 
  2. Go to Design > Scroll down to CSS Theme
  3. Copy the CSS Code below
  4. Paste it to your theme
  5. Save and activate your theme
  6. Refresh your website and browser cookies if necessary

If you are unsure of these steps, feel free to refer to my Ecwid CSS guide that explains everything you need to know about Ecwid CSS and how to fully design and customize your Ecwid store.

Ecwid Horizontal Category Code

Here is the new Ecwid CCS code to display horizontal categories on your website:


.horizontal-menu {
position: fixed;
top: 0;
left: 0;
margin-bottom: 10px;
margin-left: 0px;
margin-right: 5px;
margin-top: 5px;
width: 560px;

.ecwid-productBrowser {
margin-top: 38px !important;

.ecwid-productBrowser-head {
margin-bottom: 30px !important;

Use this code to display the categories at the top of your store on mobile and desktop:

#main { display: flex; flex-direction: column; } #custom-html { order: 1 } #ProductBrowser-1 { order: 2 }
