You can use the Online Help Sliding Menu plugin to transform a normal sidebar menu (custom or pages list) into a responsive online help style sliding menu.
This is a great plugin to use for documentation websites!
The sliding is achieved with jQuery. For responsive environments, the menu is automatically hidden and a button labels SHOW/HIDE MENU is displayed – use this button to view or hide the menu.
As an Online Help Sliding Menu, you can choose to show one of the custom menus or a list of the Pages of your website. Before setting up this plugin, you must first create a custom menu or, set up the order of the pages of your website.
For Pages that have child pages the menu will add a folder icon on the left side of the page name. Other Pages will have a file icon on the left side of the page name.
When you click the folder icon, the menu will slide down, the folder icon opens and the menu slides down showing the child pages.
When you open a link (anywhere on your website) to a page on the menu, if that page is a child page, the menu opens (slides down) all parent items of that page.
Every time you navigate to a page on the menu, the current state of the menu (opened and/or closed items) is kept for the current browser session.
If you select the Pages Menu option on this plugin’s settings page, you can also enter the ids of pages which you do not want to have on the menu.
Menus with many pages may require an increased value for the MAX_INPUT_VARS PHP variable – on this plugin’s settings page, you can check to see the current value.
