Incl. Tax One-off Free installation
Side Navigation example

Sometimes you need to show all categories, sections, sub-sections, and articles of your Help Center, but it can not be done with the default Zendesk Guide.

You can use our extension Side Navigation for that! The menu is displayed perfectly both on full screen and portable devices. It makes the navigation of your Help Center even easier and more effortless.

Side Navigation uses Zendesk API to pull all categories, sections, sub-sections, and articles of your Help Center and automatically creates a list of collapsible items. If you add articles, sections, or change the structure of your Help Center in any other way, all the changes will be automatically made in the Navigator as well.

By default, we add the Side Navigation to the article page. As part of additional customization, the navigation can show different information on different pages. For example, it can show the full structure on an article page and categories list on a category page. 

This extension caches the results to prevent the API request limit.


  • Free installation if you use our theme;
  • Responsive and Retina-ready;
  • Customization service available;
  • Zendesk Guide plans: Growth, Professional, Enterprise.
