One can truly say this is really the ultimate navigation tool!

In Italian language “navigo” means “to browse”, so I think the name is perfect…

With 65 jQuery plugin parameters there are thousands of customization options… literally!

In addition, any plugin parameter can be overwritten directly from each menu <ul> data-attributes.

All menus on this page are initialized with the same jQuery plugin settings, all the differences you see between the menus are managed through data-attributes.

Look at this! Some of these features are pretty unique:


  • Valid XHTML / CSS 3 markup
  • Cross Browser Support (IE9 – Firefox – Chrome – Opera – Safari) + browser fallback message for IE9 below cases
  • 66 plugin parameters: you can control almost anything, and easy!
  • Multiple menus on one page: and you can control almost anything for each menu, easy!
  • Button mouseover or click behavior: you can select button interaction (it reflects in responsive mode too!)
  • Optional “stayopen” class: useful for dropdown contained forms, videos… It avoids dropdown disappearing on mouseout
  • Smart options management: each plugin parameter can be overwritten by an equivalent data attribute inside the <ul> tag of each menu, in this way you can set overall rules for all navbars on the website, but you can customize each menu simply adding attributes in the markup!
  • Super simple markup: if you take a look of the ul tags markup you will see a very easy element structure!
    Main containers are the <li> tags and they can contain almost anything!
    Each <li> tag can be setted in height and width with both pixel or percent values
