    content: "\f333 Menu";
    display: block;
    font: normal 20px/1 'dashicons';
    margin: 0 auto;

personally I think everyone knows that the icon means menu and you touch it to display the menu.

but if you want to change the icon to the word Menu look for the looking code:

<div class="responsive-menu-icon"></div>

Open in new window


and change it to:

<div class="responsive-menu-icon"><strong>MENU</strong></div>

Open in new window


and if you want to remove the icon as well then change the following style which is in style.css

.responsive-menu-icon::before {
    content: "\f333";
    display: block;
    font: normal 20px/1 'dashicons';
    margin: 0 auto;
    padding: 10px;
    text-align: center;
}

Open in new window


to:

.responsive-menu-icon::before {
      display: block;   
    margin: 0 auto;
    padding: 10px;
    text-align: center;
}

Open in new window


and it will look like this:

Chiltern,  

I have found people that did not know what the hamburger icon is so I thought it best to put in the word MENU next to the icon.  

Were do I look for this code?  I could not find on the functions.php page.  

Thanks for the help

Hello Chiltern,

Where do I look for the code you provided. Site is a wordpress site so my hands are a bit tied unlike html sites.

it is a standard icon for a menu.... any smart phone user will know this if they browse.
however...
if you can't find it you could try this: (actually this is a way better solution as it will stay even after the theme gests updates )

install a plugin called Simple Custom CSS
from  https://en-gb.wordpress.org/plugins/simple-custom-css/

activate it  then under appearances there will be a new menu called custom css.

add the following to the custom css:

.responsive-menu-icon::before {
    content: "MENU";
    font: normal 20px/1 'dashicons';
    margin: 0 auto;
    padding: 10px;
    text-align: center;
}

Open in new window


save it and then view the website with a refresh. (assuming no caching)
this way you won't need to touch the code.

I do use Simple Custom CSS.  I added your code.  It removed the hamburger all together.  Ideally, I would like both if possible.  The hamburger followed by the word Menu.  Is that possible?
