Float menu – awesome floating side menu


Float Menu is a free WordPress plugin to create and place a unique floating menu on your website. The extension allows users to get access to the functions of the panel regardless of its position on the resource. The menu moves along with the scrolling of the page and always remains in visibility.

The Float Menu extension will create the convenient floating menu for your site. The panel does not take up much of the screen space and is always available to the user. Connecting the tool to a web resource will provide an opportunity to increase its usability and attractiveness. The menu is easily customizable for different site themes.

Free version does not have submenu item capability, seems like a basic function that should be included. Can't remember the last time I had a site with no submenu items, although I'm sure it happens. Probably really good if you don't need that feature, I'm not going to pay for it without seeing how that would act on my site so I'm moving on.

Perfect! Easy to configure, works fine with most themes. Would be great to have some more options available in free version 😀

WOW this is a (#&*$*ing great plugin. The Free version itself is a monument to design - they give so much, for nothing. But I noticed that the buttons made it a *little* harder to read text on mobile. Not a deal breaker, not a bug, but I was already hooked. And I didn't wanna do without! SO I upgraded. I'm cheap as &#^@ and I ponied up the money for Pro and never looked back. And man o man did that open an entirely new way of site navigation. I dont remember the last time my jaw dropped when I saw what I can now do. It took a bit of tinkering to make it really amazing. It just MAKES the mobile user experience take a quantum leap. Thanks guys.

This is well thought, generous free version of a premium plugin. Free version gives users enough options to have a nice looking side menu, with a bunch of customization, while premium version takes it to the next level, with a more robust set of options, like circle submenus, which are really creative. Well done!
