Responsive Multi Level Vertical Menu




The plugin supports all popular browsers, such as: Opera, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari


Menu can be used in Responsive Web Sites for viewing on tablets and smartphones.


You can move the cursor diagonally towards the subcategories.

At the same time an open list of subcategories will not switch or close.


If you quickly move the cursor, the menu will not respond.

The desired category appears only when you hold the cursor on it.


To open / close the category, you can click on the arrow-button.

This feature is very useful on touch devices.


The height of the block with subcategories is limited for convenience. If the items of menu is very much, in the block will be scrolling.

You can control the scrolling using the mouse wheel, using the buttons at the top and bottom part block, as well as using scroll slider.


Menu can have an unlimited number of nesting.


If you wish, you can use ready-made themes and color schemes menus.

To do this, we created a constructor of styles.

Controll of Height

If the height of the sub-categories more than specified in the parameter, the sub-categories are aligned with the upper edge of the menu

Include files <head> ...[THIS CODE]... </head>

To work the plugin the necessary files you must place the files listed below on your server

After this you need to connect these files inside the tag "head" of your site

Typically, style files placed in the folder "css", and script files - in a folder "js", but your folder structure may be another.

If you have an another directory structure, make sure you set the correct path to the files.

<!--If you have already use jquery, then this line is not necessary--> 
<script src="js/jquery-1.11.1.min.js"></script> 

<!-- Plugins files-->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/liShopen.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/liShopen-theme-1.css">
<script src="js/jquery.liShopen.js"></script>

Once you have written the connection of necessary files, plugin needs to be initialized.

For this purpose, in tag "head" need to add this code below the code of connection.
