0 comment(s)

In the following article we will show some tips about how to make your menu items more fascinating, if you use the Overlay menu mode.

What will you need for that?

In spite of the fact that text animations are already built into the module manager of the Vertical Menu for a while, you haven' t really used that on your sites. Our aim now to introduce this parameter in details, and show you how easy to use that, and make your menu more spectacular with a few clicks. First you don't need anything else, just select the overlay mode in the module manager, and scroll down to the Animation parameters tab. Here you can change the opening animation effects as well as other detailed settings. You can find description for that part in the documentation, but now the important parameter is the Text animation for us. If you open that, you will see how many different presets are available.
