Side Navigation Automatic Display

If a viewer's screen size is larger than 1280px wide new Google Sites will automatically display the side navigation. A screen size less than 1280px will make the side navigation hide and the viewer needs to use the menu button (three horizontal lines stacked vertically) to make the side navigation visible.
