jQuery Sliding Menu

by Vincy. Last modified on July 6th, 2023.

Usually, a menu bar occupies some spaces on a web page. Using a sliding menu gives us more space to display the main content. In previous posts, we have seen about jQuery menu expand and collapse with the sliding effect.

We call jQuery on the click event of the menu expand/collapse icon and control the sliding effect by using CSS styles. The sliding menu bar will be sticky on the page scroll in this example.

Sliding Sticky Menu Bar using jQuery

Sliding in and out effects are achieved by changing the absolute position of the sliding menu element using jQuery. The script is,

    $(".menu-list").css( {"left": 0});
	$(".menu-link-target").css( {"left": 200});
    $(".menu-list").css({"left": "-"+ $(".menu-list").width()});
	$(".menu-link-target").css( {"left": 0});
$('.menu-links').click(function() { 
		var target = $(this).attr('id');
		$('html, body').animate({scrollTop: $('#'+target+'-content').offset().top}, 1000);
