An extended bootstrap Nav widget for Yii Framework 2 with submenu drilldown. This widget extends the \yii\bootstrap\Nav widget for Bootstrap 3.x and \yii\bootstrap4\Nav widget for Bootstrap 4.x \yii\bootstrap5\Nav widget for Bootstrap 5.x with some additional controls and adding the CSS Styles for enabling a submenu drilldown. The dropdown menu style is optimized for both desktop and mobile devices. The drilldown is triggered on active instead of hover so that it works equally well on mobile devices. The extension uses the one of the following Dropdown Class extensions by default for rendering dropdown navigation, but this can be overridden:

  • \kartik\dropdown\DropdownX for Bootstrap 3.x
  • \kartik\bs4dropdown\Dropdown for Bootstrap 4.x
  • \kartik\bs5dropdown\Dropdown for Bootstrap 5.x


You can see detailed documentation on usage of the extension.


Install the dependencies depending on the Bootstrap version used in your app:

  1. For Bootstrap 3.x install kartik-v/yii2-dropdown-x
$ php composer.phar require kartik-v/yii2-dropdown-x "@dev"
  1. For Bootstrap 4.x install kartik-v/yii2-bootstrap4-dropdown
$ php composer.phar require kartik-v/yii2-bootstrap4-dropdown "@dev"
  1. For Bootstrap 5.x install kartik-v/yii2-bootstrap5-dropdown
$ php composer.phar require kartik-v/yii2-bootstrap5-dropdown "@dev"
