Most people would agree that navigation is one of the most important components of any website. Despite this, it’s not always easy to use or access it.

Sticky Menus allow quicker navigation

Fixed (sticky) navigation is a website menu locked into place, so it never disappears when a user scrolls down the page. It is omnipresent and accessible from anywhere on the website without the need to scroll.

Browsing a website that has sticky header makes you feel comfortable, because “the wheel” is always in your sight and you could easily switch lanes if you wanted to.

Mobile compatibility

You can choose whether you want to present your fixed header to mobile visitors because their lack of screen real-estate and their scrolling habits don’t require one.

Sticky header plugin has you covered. By configuring the Hide if screen is narrower than option, you can choose when or whether your fixed header should appear.

Improve branding

The longer your branding stays before your users’ eyes, the bigger the chance they’ll subconsciously remember it and recognize you in the future.


Some people don’t like sticky headers because they interfere with the clean look of the page and present a distraction. When you design yours, make sure you blend it nicely so it doesn’t pop out too much. Your branding and navigation should be visible and easily accessible, but it should never compete with your content.

With the giants, such as Google, Microsoft, and others which use fixed headers, they’ve recently gained popularity. Consider implementing one on your website, it’s super easy with our Sticky Header WordPress plugin. It may improve your branding, usability and the overall user experience of the website.
