Wordpress Style Vertical Sidebar Navigation Plugin - jQuery rvnm

rvnm is a jQuery plugin that helps developers create a responsive, mobile-friendly sidebar navigation as you see on Wordpress admin panel.


  • Supports unlimited menu levels.
  • Collapse/expand submenus just like an accordion.
  • 2 display modes: desktop and mobile.
  • 5 built-in themes.
  • Allows the user to search through navigation items via a search field.
  • Licensed under the GPL-3.0.

How to use it:

1. Load the Font Awesome for the menu items.

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

2. Load the needed jQuery library from a CDN.

<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.min.js"></script>

3. Download and load the jQuery rvnm plugin's JavaScript and Stylesheet in the document.

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

4. Create the sidebar navigation from a nested nav list as follows:

<nav id="navbar" class="">
    <li> <span class="spliter"> <i class="fa fa-cart-plus"></i> Aliquam dictum </span> </li>
    <li> <a href="#"> <i class="fa fa-bell-o"></i> eleifend risus </a>
        <li> <a href="#"> suscipit mauris </a> </li>
        <li> <a href="#"> sed placerat ipsum </a> </li>
        <li> <a href="#"> Proin turpis </a> </li>
    <li> <a href="#"> <i class="fa fa-plus-square"></i> Nunc eleifend molestie velit. Morbi lobortis quam eu velit </a>
        <li> <a href="#"> semper leo </a> </li>
        <li> <a> habitasse platea </a>
