mystickymenu sticky header

myStickymenu, Simple sticky (fixed on top) menu

This lightweight WordPress plugin will made your menu sticky on top of page. You can see this very plugin in action on this website, just scroll your mouse up and down and notice that menu is following your scroll.

Plugin is designed to work with Twenty Thirteen theme, but should work on any theme. It’s using .navbar css class by default, and that’s the only thing that need to be modified for other themes to make it work. Inspect your code to find appropriate menu/navigation bar class or id. Go to Settings / myStickymenu and change Sticky Class to .your_navbar_class or #your_navbar_id.

myStickymenu is based on javascript which will add .myfixed css class to any predefined class after scroll by default. For example with default .navbar class:

will become

after scroll.

This way we can have custom css style for sticky (.myfixed) class. More about custom styles…

Version 1.2 –  fix IE browser support
There is a minor fix in mystickymenu.js for IE browsers, so myStickymenu is now compatible with IE 10, 11  (thanks to Brandon who reported a bug). For now it’s confirmed that myStickymenu is compatible with all newer versions of: Firefox, Safari, Chrome, IE . I didn’t check older versions of browsers or other browsers yet. If you feel like it, please leave a comment  for other supported or unsupported versions and browsers bellow.

Version 1.1 is out!
New administration options are now available through Dashboard / Settings / myStickymenu. Options are as follows: Sticky Class, Sticky z-index, Sticky Width, Sticky Background Color, Sticky Opacity, Sticky Transition Time. Old mystickymenu.css file is deprecated and not in use anymore, so you can delete it from your plugin folder if you want. If you need old css rules from css file, you can copy them to your theme stylesheet manually (Sorry if I broke someones update, I’ll promise it won’t happen again).mystickymenu settings

myStickymenu will change some of Twenty Thirteen defaults:
– disables default WordPress more link that jump on the middle of the page (otherwise menu will cover beginning of a read more text). In this way more link will be opened as any other page or post without of necessary anchor style jumping .
– changes Twenty Thirteen “fixed” adminbar (#wpadminbar)  when logged in on frontpage to “absolute” so it goes away with a scroll. This way myStickymenu can be transparent without of overlapping with admin bar  (This only affects logged in users of Twenty Thirteen theme.) Since version 1.3 there is admin setting to disable this option for themes without of admin bar in front page.

For different themes check out myStickymenu theme support

…and please comment if you like it or have an idea how to improve it…

Big thanks to Ogi Djuraskovic for Spanish and Serbian translations and Schelli for German translation. I would appreciate your help in translation for other languages (since version 1.7 there are translatable .mo and .po files included in plugin languages folder). Anyone willing to contribute is welcome.

  1. Hi, is there a way instead of the menu temporarily dissapearing then coming back that the initial menu can just stick to the top as it reaches the defined point?

    1. You can define it in myStickymenu settings under “Make visible on Scroll after” field. Just increase the number do desired point…

  2. Hi there,

    i am using the sticky menu on twentythirteen, thanks. Would be great if it could contain a different menu (different items, a secondary menu) but as a navbar!
    and then: its background seems to be browser wide, id like to have it page wide.

    Can you point me in the right direction?

  3. Nice plugin! Fixed my twentyfourteen @ fullwidth navbar issue without any hassle at all…

    PS Regarding mentioned opacity on wrapfixed class…
    Seems .wrapfixed has background-color set to important hardcoded in the plug JS. Any chance removing important in default JS ? Is it even needed since wrapfixed perhaps is a mystickymenu exclusive class?
    Personally I just removed important and set a CSS override to background: transparent;
    – But that’s me… :-)

    Anyway, great plug! Thanks again…

      1. wrapfixed background color is generated by php from plugin settings, it’s not in JS… However in version 1.8.1 there is a new option to disable all css generated by plugin, so than you can include all your css manually into style.css.
