Insert the widget
To work with the widget, you have to insert it on your page. To do that, type Slinky Vertical Menu in the search field, then just drag-drop the widget in the text area.
Customize menu layout from the Content tab
Using the content tab, you can customize the layout of the slinky vertical menu to make whatever you want.
Let’s customize the Layout
Go to Content> Layout
After inserting the widget, you will see a default view of the Slinky Vertical Menu in the Layout section under the Content tab. Notice that there is a Dynamic Menu switcher on top and then some menu items. These are the active menu items that you can see on the screen. Below it, there is a button to add new items. In the text area, you see 3 menus i.e.: About, Gallery, and Contacts.
You can easily surf through the menu by clicking on the submenu arrow. The interactive menu will take you to the submenu page without changing the layout area but with a nice transition effect.
You can toss Dynamic menus anytime
The slinky vertical menu widget allows you to use pre-made menus or dynamic menus created with WordPress.
First, enable the Dynamic Menu switcher. After that, select a menu from the Select Menu drop-down option. You will see the selected menu view with the set in the text area.
Take a look at the Additional Settings
In the Additional Settings section, you will find options to set the Menu Max Width and the Text Alignment. There is a switcher on the top to show the sticky menu.
Customize the menu items with the Style tab
The style tab lets you customize the appearance of the menu by changing colors, adding borders, padding, etc.
Customize Menu Items first
Go to Style> Menu Items
Here, you can change the background color and text color of the menu for normal and hover modes. Let’s get a deep color for the menu with a custom border radius. Then you can create gaps between the menu items using the scrollbar below.
Next, for the Hover mode, change the color of the text and then set a lite background color. Looks nice!
Change Indicator style
Go to Style> Indicator
Now, we will customize the indicator. Let’s change the indicator color to black and then set a thin border around it, followed by a Border Radius of 50 to make them round. After that, you can add some padding to the icon.
All done! You have successfully customized the Slinky Vertical Menu widget on your website.
