Smart Sticky Header Hamburger Navigation Plugin - jQuery mhead

mhead is a jQuery plugin used to create a sticky header hamburger navigation for your web application that auto shows/hides as you scroll/swipe the page down or up.

Liccensed under the CC-BY-4.0 license.

How to use it:

1. The plugin depends on jQuery library and jQuery mmenu plugin.

<script src="/path/to/jquery.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/path/to/jquery.mmenu.all.css">
<script src="/path/to/jquery.mmenu.all.js"></script>

2. Load the mhead plugin's JS and CSS files in the document.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="jquery.mhead.css">
<script src="jquery.mhead.js"></script>

3. Load the latest Font Awesome for the navigation icons.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="/path/to/font-awesome.min.css">

4. Create the header navigation bar with the following CSS classes:

  • .mh-head: required
  • .mh-size-2/3: enlarges the header nav two or three times
  • .mh-align-left/right: aligns the text or logo to the left or right.
  • .mh-btns-left/right: aligns the toggle button to the left or right.
  • .mh-btns-2/3-left/right: enlarges the toggle button two or three times
  • .mh-hamburger: transforms the toggle button into a hamburger button
  • .mh-text: header text
  • .mh-list: scrollable list
  • .mh-form: search field
  • .mh-logo: site logo
  • .mh-image: background image
<div class="mh-head Sticky" id="example">
  <span class="mh-btns-left">
    <a class="fa fa-bars" href="#menu"></a>
  <span class="mh-text">demo</span>

5. Inert your own menu items to the navigation.

<nav id="menu">
    <li><a href="#">Home</a></li>
    <li><span>About us</span>
        <li><a href="#">History</a></li>
        <li><span>The team</span>
            <li><a href="#">Management</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">Sales</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">Development</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Our address</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Contact</a></li>

6. Initialize the plugin with default settings and we're done.

//  create a menu

//  fire the plugin

7. All default settings to customize the header navigation.


  scroll: {

    // amount of pixels to scroll down before hiding the header nav
    hide: 0,

    // amount of pixels to scroll down before showing the header nav
    show: 0,

    // minimum amount of pixels to scroll per scroll-event before showing or hiding the header nav
    tolerance: 4


  hamburger: {

    // query selector for the menu that should be opened when clicking the hamburger icon
    // if omitted, the plugin will use the anchor href attribute or target the first mmenu menu that it finds
    menu: null,

    // animation type
    animation: "collapse"
