The great thing about WordPress is the plugins. Plugins can hugely transform and benefit your site, without you having to do any coding, ideal for those who have no coding knowledge whatsoever.
If you haven’t noticed already, the default WordPress themes don’t come with great navigation menus. They’re usually very simple. This also goes for most themes that are available for WordPress.
UberMenu is a plugin which completely transforms a navigation menu. The amount of features the plugin has completely outclasses most, if not all, navigation menus that come with WordPress and its themes.
Here is a list of some of the key features:
- Responsive design
- Android, iPhone and iPad compatible
- Integrates with WordPress’ menu management system
- Over 20 preset themes come included
- Themes can be customised
- CSS customisation included
- Vertical and horizontal designs
- Transitions (eg. fade, slide)
- Different states for click and hover
- Add images to menu items
- Add descriptions to menu items
- Add widgets into the menu
- Google Maps
- Search Bar
- Contact forms
- Latest posts
- Image Galleries
There are also a whole bunch of other features available. I use the plugin myself to achieve the menu you see at the top. Though mine is very simple because that’s how I like it.
If you have a WordPress site I highly recommend this plugin, it’ll make your themes navigation menu obsolete. It is the best navigation menu plugin for WordPress
