25 jQuery Plugins for Navigation

A few weeks ago we featured 25 jQuery Tutorials for Improved Navigation Menus. Today we’ll take a look at more jQuery options for navigation, this time focusing on plugins that you can use in your own work.

Accordion Menu Script

jQuery Navigation Plugin

  • Raymond Selda

    Nice collection. I think I’ve used JQuery UI Tabs before. I’m not really that good with Javascript so having JQuery and the plug-ins is a real lifesaver.

    Thank you for this post.

  • Jan Jarfalk

    Both when I wanted a Tab plugin and an Accordion plugin I wasn’t happy with what I found on the web. I found them all to heavy, byte wise, and to bloated with functionality I would never use.

    So I created my own plugins – Tabify and Accordion. Both doesn’t feature as much functionality as other script, but if you want something lightweight I think they are the way to go.

    Thanks for the nice collection!

    Apart from the ‘traditional’ navigation methods, there is also endless (or infinite) scroll which is now gaining more and more attention. :)


  • Jason Bartholme

    Great stuff Steven! I’ve been working on a few projects that use jQuery and this will come in handy when I get to the UI.

  • AthenaEmily

    The official jQuery UI tab component is worth checking out, especially because it’s easily skinnable with the ThemeRoller app and their new CSS framework:

    Hey, thanks for posting. There are quite a few here that I hadn’t come across. Well played.

  • Patrick H. Lauke

    just a shame that the vast majority of those plugins (or at least their demo pages) aren’t even doing basic keyboard access and just rely on mouse interaction…

  • Amber Weinberg

    I’ll be using some of these today 😉

  • mahgob

    I have came across this simple tabs article with working demo which works absolutely perfect. All you do is add contents and link for each tab in html you do not need to add/modify ids or scripts.It just manages everything dynamically.

    here is the link

    please give it a try and share the great jquery plugins

  • designer Itransition

    I only want to note that navigation related plugins should be integrated with a profound correlation with the informational structure of the web site. The variety of programming examples shouldn’t overload the easy and clear site navigation.
