The last few months didn't passed without happenings in the Vertical Menu's life. As the matter of the fact we didn't post about that, but in the background we have worked at full blast. Based on the many users' feedback (which are really appreciated) and on our ideas we have implement many new useful features into the already great Vertical Menu! Check the details below:
Vertical Menu opener button caption
Menu opener button caption
A caption next to the burger icon with a custom text like "MENU" could make more clear where the users should click to reach the desired menu item faster - Danielle.
If we should make an order about the most requested features, that one would be in the very first place. We are welcomed it, extend that with our ideas and as a result a new feature was bornt. On the attached image you can see that there are 4 different way how you can show the custom text.

Auto open menu when the page loaded
Would you like to show a quick navigation for your customers when they visit your site? Or even show a welcome screen with modules? If the answer is yes this is a must have feature for you. You can enable an option, which will open your sidebar overlay or popup menu on the first visit or even every page loads. So what will the visitors see for the first time would be your menu navigation. Imagine that you have a webshop site. When visitors check that, the navigation will opened and can browse categories while you have also placed a banner with the current sales into the embedded top module position of the Vertical Menu. Guess what, you got two birds with one stone. Users can navigate on your site faster, and also the chance to reach your discounted sales. What could be better than that?
14 predefined menu item animation
With the Vertical Menu you are able to set animations not only for the menu appearing, but for the menu items as well. You can choose from the 14 predefined one or even create your own one with the advanced settings. This feature will make the menu more spectacular than ever. Check it below:
Accordion menu item transition
Dropmenu open on hover/click
There were also several request from users who would like to open and keep the sub-level of a parent dropmenu item for click instead of the hover, so now this is also available.
