Fixed elements introduction

If your page contains elements with position: fixed; or position: sticky; that suddenly disappear when opening the menu, you might want to give the "fixedElements" add-on a try. First include the "fixedElements" add-on .js file.

   <script src="path/to/jquery.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
   <script src="path/to/jquery.mmenu.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
   <script src="path/to/jquery.mmenu.fixedelements.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
   <link href="path/to/jquery.mmenu.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />
   <script type="text/javascript">
      $(document).ready(function() {

Next, add the class Fixed to the fixed elements and Sticky to the sticky elements.

<div id="my-page">
   <div id="my-header" class="Fixed">
      The header.
   <div id="my-content">
      Some text.

If you're using a different classname (for example "fix" or "stick"), you must specify this in the classNames.fixedElements.fixed or classNames.fixedElements.sticky options in the configuration object.

<script type="text/javascript">
   $(document).ready(function() {
         // options
      }, {
         // configuration
         classNames: {
            fixedElements: {
               fixed: "fix",
               sticky: "stick"

Note that, where possible, it is advised to use position: stikcy; in favor of position: fixed; due to the less hacky workaround.
