The Popup Menu jQuery plugin lets you create and display an animated, customizable context popup menu when you click or hover on a specific trigger element.


  • Custom positions: top, right, bottom, or left.
  • Custom themes: default, blue, red, green, custom.
  • 4 animations: default, flip, grow, bounce.
  • Dynamic menu items.

How to use it:

1. Download and import the jQuery Popup Menu plugin into the webpage.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="styles/Popup-plugin.css">
<script src=""></script>
<script src="scripts/Popup-plugin.js"></script>

2. Use either Font Awesome icons or Google Material icons with these links:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="">

3. Create a trigger element the popup menu will be attached to.

<div id="myPopUp" name="demo" class="popupTheme">
  <i class="fa fa-cog"></i>

4. Define your menu items.

var myMenu =  '<div>\
      <a href="#"><i id="v-hap" class="material-icons">sentiment_very_satisfied</i></a>\
      <a href="#"><i id="hap" class="material-icons">sentiment_satisfied</i></a>\
      <a href="#"><i id="neut" class="material-icons">sentiment_neutral</i></a>\
      <a href="#"><i id="unhap" class="material-icons">sentiment_dissatisfied</i></a>\
      <a href="#"><i id="v-unhap" class="material-icons">sentiment_very_dissatisfied</i></a>\

5. Enable the popup menu with default settings.

  // Where the popup will show by default- top. 
  // Other options: right, bottom, or left
