Hello Sarah,

Your site is defaulting to the full abbreviated mobile view on mobile devices for me. The Hamburger view is when I select "More" in the navigation. 

From my perspective as a potential buyer, I feel that your site in the "hamburger view" is more intuitive and easier to navigate on my mobile device.

From a functional perspective, it would be very difficult to see how the desktop view would be useable on a mobile device. It would mean scrolling left and right to discover elements of your pages or miniaturising the elements to such an extent that they would be difficult to read without a secondary function to zoom in on them after discovery and I really wouldn't be sure that I have seen all the page elements. The mobile view automatically arranges the elements into a vertical perspective so that all the elements are only in one dimension and easily seen and discovered. The desktop "above the fold" philosophy has been discarded with the advent of small screen devices.

The Hamburger icon is one of the default universal mobile icons and is becoming more and more recognised by mobile users. Many people do dislike the "hamburger" I know. It would be quite difficult to remove this on a Yola built site without bespoke designing by Yola engineers because this level of code is well immersed in the over-all site coding.
