Main differences between free and pro version?

In both versions you got a fixed fancy menu for your WP site. But in free version customizable options are quite limited, while in pro version you can end up with a more customized menu (check feature list for differences). Moreover, with pro version you will get priority support and we will take your feature requests above the others in the future updates to-do list.

Reviews

Too little available in free version

This had the prospect of being a really good plugin, but as it only allows 1 position in the free version, at the bottom of the screen, it’s unusable.

I’m not sure if this is even still being supported, but that inflexibility of position makes it impossible for most designers as it interferes with footers and may even not be seen!

Changelog

1.1.1

  • Fix: quick patch so PHP 5.2 hosting users no longer get an error regarding array_replace_recursive() function, which is only available in PHP>=5.3

1.1.0

  • Please, after upgrading, you must go to circular navigation option panel and click save changes.
  • Tweak: added some padding/margin for first and last element so they are not as close to the edge of the screen
  • Fix/new feature: fixed hidden element messing things up when setting ‘no icon’ and ‘no text’ for a navigation element. Now, with those settings you end up having a blank useful separator.
  • Tweak: improved orientation of elements for fixed position at left or right, in such a way that icons and texts are better faced to the user. (left and right positions are only in pro version)
  • New Feature: you can upload and use your own custom icons/images inside navigation elements. (pro version)
  • New Feature: you can upload and use your own custom icon/image inside the menu button. (pro version)
