Responsive Sticky Navigation Plugin For jQuery - Simple Menu

The Simple Menu jQuery plugin lets you create a responsive, sticky, multi-functional, in-page navigation menu for your long webpages.


  • Auto transforms the responsive menu into a dropdown navigation on mobile devices.
  • Sticks the navigation menu to the top of the webpage on scroll.
  • Smoothly scrolls to specific points when you click on the anchor links inside the navigation.
  • Supports scrollspy functionality.
  • A sliding line that indicates which content section you're viewing on.


# Yarn
$ yarn add jquery-simple-menu

$ npm install jquery-simple-menu

How to use it:

1. Create the responsive sticky navigation as this:

<nav class="simple-menu clearfix">
  <a class="btn btn-menu">Menu</a>
    <li><a href="#wayp-1">Link 1</a></li>
    <li><a href="#wayp-2">Link 2</a></li>
    <li><a href="#wayp-3">Link 3</a></li>

2. Create the content sections you want to scroll through.

<div id="wayp-1" class="tracked">
  <h3>Waipoint 1</h3>

<div id="wayp-2" class="tracked">
  <h3>Waipoint 2</h3>

<div id="wayp-3" class="tracked">
  <h3>Waipoint 3</h3>

3. Apply your own CSS styles to the navigation.

.simple-menu { background-color: #009688; }

.simple-menu ul {
  -webkit-padding-start: 0px;
  -webkit-margin-before: 0;
  -webkit-margin-after: 0;

.simple-menu ul a {
  padding: 20px;
  color: #ffffff;

.simple-menu a:hover { background-color: #00776c; }

.fixed { box-shadow: 0 7px 17px -2px rgba(117, 117, 117, 1); }

.clearfix {  *zoom: 1;

.clearfix:before, .clearfix:after {
  display: table;
  content: "";
  line-height: 0;

.clearfix:after { clear: both; }

@media screen and (max-width: 728px) {

.simple-menu ul { background-color: #009688; }

.simple-menu li { text-align: center; }

.simple-menu a { border-bottom: 1px solid #79896d; }

.btn-menu {

  padding: 20px;
