The Scroll Navigation widget is one of the most widely used menu widgets in Elementor. We have been seeing and using this tool on a huge number of websites. It’s fun and handy as well as packed with features.
Let’s see how to use this widget.
From the widget menu in the Elementor page editor, search for the Scroll Navigation widget and drag it inside your page.
To show the widgets’ applications properly, we created several other sections beforehand. You can also use a ready-page template from Element Pack Template Library in this case.
The content tab has all the base settings to design the layout of the content. For the Scroll Navigation widget, the content tab has 3 sections.
In the first section, you will find options for adding or removing the navigation menu items. There are also options for selecting the nav type from Nav View and two switchers. These switchers are for making the scroll app navigation menu vertically aligned or fixed in position.
Each nav item has a title field, a link field for a one page menu setup, and an icon selection.
Floating nav setup
Using Dots as nav and turning on the vertical & fixed nav is a great way to make a floating navigation menu.
Also, you have to go to the section settings of the vertical scroll css and add a higher value for Z-Index from Additional settings.
Go to Content> Additional
Here, you can adjust the position of the navigation menu with the help of a bunch of options.
Go to Content> Tooltip
This section holds the placement and animation options for the tooltip. You can set it to Trigger on Click by turning on the switcher also.
Note: The Tooltip section will only be visible for the Dots navigation. The default nav doesn’t have this setting.
You can change the appearance of the Scroll navigation widget menu by colors, borders, and more using the style tab.
Go to Style> Dot Nav
Here, you will have options for increasing dot sizes, change color, add border, border radius & padding.
Note: the default nav has a slightly different set of options in the style tab.
Go to Style> Tooltip
Lastly, you can change the color, typography, width, text alignment of the tooltip. Also, you can add borders, padding, and use box shadows.
