Create a responsive full screen overlay menu for your Joomla website

We have recently seen a growing trend of websites using a full screen menu - this is for two main reasons. First, it is quite a bold move in terms of functionality.

Covering all your content to show the menu is a relatively new concept - however, it is become quite trendy to use a full screen responsive menu. Even large creative agencies have successfully used this.

The second reason why this is very popular is because of course, this is as responsive as something can get. The menu will look identical whether this is a desktop, a phone or a tablet. This plugin makes it easy to implement this concept of a full screen menu on your Joomla website - and integrates with the Joomla menu functionality directly.

It's also very flexible and customisable, you can choose the fonts, colors and animation direction of the Joomla full screen responsive menu - so that it is inline with the rest of your website.

Best of all - this Joomla plugin is completely FREE, Gratis, you pay nothing, zero, zilch, niente! ;-) Just say thank you to :-)

This effect can also be found as Full Screen overlay effect - however, whatever name you want to call this - we've got you covered for Joomla ;-)

We've found a few examples of sites which use a full screen menu: Huge Inc. | TicTail | Zaarly Handbook | SouthPaw Agency | Not Complex
