  1. My theme already has a nice mobile menu. Why would I want to use this? Would this replace my current menu? I am confused by this plugin. Are you actually remaking my site entirely?

    My site is already looking good on mobile. I hope you can help clear this up. Thanks.

    1. Hi Steve,

      Yes your mobile menu will get changed when you visit the AMP pages because in many cases the mobile menu will be built with javascript and jquery and that is not allowed in AMP and in addition to this only 50K limit of CSS is allowed in AMP and due to this you cannot use your mobile menu in AMP and because of this only we create the new menu in AMP and that will only appear when your visitor comes to AMP pages and when visiting the normal website it will display the mobile menu only

  2. Hello – can you tell me how to remove the menu when using the Swift theme?
