Description

Homepage | Demo | Documentation | Support

8Degree Fly Menu Lite is a free WordPress plugin that allows you to style your site with quick access navigation menu or easy information using an off canvas menu.

8Degree Fly Menu Lite makes use of the default WordPress menu function to create menus. You can add additional elements to the default menu items such as Menu Icons, Menu Taglines (short description), a pseudo grouping header and a long description. We have provided you with a WYSIWYG editor for your long description, so you can add almost anything here including shortcodes. Add header content and footer content to the menu or replace the entire menu with just quick information on the fly.

Reviews

Free off canvas side menu

This is a nice free side sliding off canvas menu plugin that seems to be pretty much undiscovered. There’s a fair amount of customisation possible but a few options are missing.

Feels like the plugin is unfinished, but it’s not unusable.

It’s a bit unintuitive to set up – you have to create a menu, add a new Fly Menu, apply Fly Menu to your menu, then assign your menu to the Fly Menu… but once that’s done, a hamburger icon appears on your website.

Eg. you can set background & font colours for hover states, but the current page item is given the hover background and normal font colour, so you can’t flip light onto dark (eg. black background & white text, then white hover background & black hover text).

The hamburger button can be customised to some extent but not fully. It would be good if there was the option to insert text beside the icon, eg. if I want it to say “Menu” or “Shop”. The button width can be set, but not the height? All these things can be fixed manually with custom CSS but seem strange not to be in the inbuilt customisation settings.

There are no responsive settings, so if you only want the toggle on mobile you have to use custom CSS to hide it at higher breakpoints.

Background overlays & blur effect do not work for me – I’m using a barebones theme so unlikely it’s conflicting with anything. Again could be unfinished.

But it looks nice, the animation is smooth and it solves the problem of building a mobile site with submenus. All in all it’s a nice menu, lightweight, worth a shot.
