What is this?

The offcanvas position is a module position and responsive menu that is hidden off the page (either to the left or the right) and is displayed on the page when the user clicks on the offcanvas trigger button.

The Ascetn2 demo uses an instance of the Zentools2 module to display the content rendered in the offcanvas.
