Want to make your WordPress website more inviting, modern, and overall easier to use? One of the ways to do that is by implementing a sticky menu. A sticky menu helps the user get to where they want to go without constantly scrolling up and down a page. It’s particularly useful on one-page websites, where the page might be quite long; thus a sticky navigation menu is necessary.
On longer posts/pages, it is crucial to have a sticky menu because visitors will quickly lose interest if they constantly have to scroll up to access a certain feature on a navigation bar.
A sticky menu is there to offer all the features a navigation bar has that one might need while scrolling through a post. This way, visitors can scroll through longer posts and use the sticky menu at any point.
So basically, a sticky menu is a menu that stays on top of the page, even when a user is scrolling down. Plus, it’s not only handy, but it also looks cool on a website.
With that said, we will now present you with the 10 best WordPress plugins for creating a sticky menu!
