The hamburger menu that we've all become familiar with, is great for hiding a menu, but if you have a website or application that has multiple menus that you need to hide, what is best practice for using the hamburger menu more than once?
Possible use cases for a hamburger icon:
- Main navigation menu in header
- Utility menu for account links
- Listing of editable items in a table with a set of operations
- Footer menu
People may have personal opinions about this but it would be more productive if you could explain why and perhaps provide references to back things up.
There is another thread about this on ux.stackexchange, but its specific to having them in the nav bar, which is a slightly different context, and it hasn't been answered properly. For relevance sake here is the thread: What to do if more than 2 hamburger icons in nav bar?.
