Installing Push Menu plugin

Note: After downloading plugin file, first unzip it in order to be able to access and to install push-menu.zip. If you try to install parent .zip file which contain both plugin installation and documentation, installation will fail.

To install it, from WordPress back end, navigate to Plugins > Add New > Upload Plugin and select push-menu.zip file. Finally click Install Now:


After installation, Activate the plugin.




Push Menu Integration

When Push menu is actiavted and configured, default theme menu will be replaced with toggle button which will reveal off canvas menu on click. You can also replace several menus, so if you decide to use some other menu, it will also use Push Menu Off Canvas layout. In order to set it up, you first need to assign one of your menus to one of theme predefined menu locations. Navigate to Appereance > Push Menu options > General, and select one of your menus, or create a new one, assign it to menu location and Save Changes.



Finally navigate to Appereance > Push Menu options > General, select previously assigned menu, or select multiple menus with Ctrl + Click method, and Save Changes.


With these few steps, menu is ready, and it will be displayed instead of default theme menu.


Clicking on Hamburger menu will open off canvas menu.


In few steps above, you saw a glimpse of Push Menu options, and we will cover all of them in following chapter.


Manual Integration

Note: For manual integration, intermediate coding knowledge is required.

Usage:

<?php pushmenu_integration($args); ?>

Default arguments:

$args = array(
   'theme_location' => '',
   'menu' => ''
);

Parameters:

'menu'

Required - Pass selected menu to this argument so you can initialize Push Menu for it. If you do not pass 'menu' argument, Push Menu will call menu which was created first.

'theme_location'

Optional - You can pass the theme location if you want, but it is not mandatory, and Push Menu requires only 'menu' argument in order to initialize it for the selected menu.

To find the menu you want to integrate go to Appearence > Menus. Edit existing menu, or create new. When done, copy the Menu Name, and then pass it to the 'menu' argument when calling Push Menu.


Then go to theme files (usually header.php) and paste integration function where you want it.

Example:

<?php
  //pass the selected menu to the arguments array (In this example I will be using Header Menu)
  $args = array( 'menu' => 'Header Menu' ); 

  //call Push Menu
  pushmenu_integration($args);
?>

Push Menu Options

You can access Push Menu Options from Appereance > Push Menu options. While there, you will see several tabs on the left and accessing each one will reveal several sets of options.


Note: For each option which is expecting value, like line height, margin, padding, font size, you just need to type value in. Do not add px at the end unless instructed differently by description next to it.
