Morph: Flyout Mobile Menu for WordPress

Morph: Flyout Mobile Menu for WordPress

While designed primarily as a mobile menu, Morph works wonderfully on both desktop and touch devices and can be set to be shown at specified resolutions only, meaning – if you so wish – it can easily be used as a mobile-only or desktop-only menu.

Morph is also extremely easy to customize; by changing colors, enabling/disabling and modifying different elements, you can make sure your menu suits your site. It even supports widgets, making it that much more expandable. You can also slide it in from either the left or right side of the screen.

Furthermore, the flyout menu can be triggered by any element (a custom menu button for example). All you have to do is add a specific class to the element and voila! For cases such as this, Morph’s own menu button can be hidden with a single click.

To get a visual of what’s possible, be sure to have a look at the details below. And certainly don’t miss the live example here to see the menu in action. You can see more examples on the demo sites for one of our mobile themes here.

It’s all in the details

Below, you’ll see the massive customizability of Morph brought out in detail. Every customizable element is displayed and explained in full. And remember, with the real-time Live Customizer integration, making changes as you see fit is effortless.

Header bar

The header bar holds Morph’s menu button and logo locations. Choose from multiple menu button styles and animations, add a menu button label, set up a logo, customize colors, opacity etc.

Have a look at the image below to get acquainted with all the possibilities:

Heading area

The heading area allows you to give some serious personality to your Morph flyout menu. Customize its height, overlay color and opacity, add a background image or pattern, insert heading and sub-heading texts with any information, and customize the color and thickness of its bottom border. You can also set up an optional secondary menu. Or you can hide the entire area and everything in it.

The image below lays out all the possibilities:

Multi-level accordion menu and widgets

The backbone of Morph is of course its flyout menu which, like everything else in the plugin, is immensely customizable; create a multi-level accordion menu, add icons and descriptions to menu items, change any and all colors. There’s even a widget location which allows you to wildly extend its uses; add a mailing list signup form, a call to action button, absolutely anything you need.

In addition, you can display Morph on specified resolutions only, there are options to hide your theme menu/logo/search etc. by IDs/classes when Morph is being displayed, and customize the color and opacity of the overlay which is displayed when the flyout menu is open.
