Nest is a lightweight WordPress plugin that lets you add animated off canvas sliding panels to any website. Whether you’d like to set up a sliding sidebar, a sliding header or footer, or even a full-screen flyout panel for your WordPress site, Nest’s feature set makes it an absolute and utter breeze.
Not only is Nest easy to set up and use but it’s also very customizable. For example, you can customize a panel’s size and animation speed with pixel and millisecond accuracy. And there are many more features and customization options:
Nest’s sliding panels are effortlessly yet massively customizable. Essentially every aspect of the appearance of a panel can be customized to your liking:
Sliding panels, sliding bars and sliding sidebars are a fantastic way to display content to your visitors in a memorable way. To give some examples, you can use Nest to display a mailing list sign-up form, alert your audience to an upcoming event, introduce a product, invite feedback from your readers, show off your vacation photos, set up a menu and so on. You really are only limited by your needs and imagination.
With the possibility to show a Nest panel on a specific post or page only and activate it from any element, automatically via time delay or when scrolled to an anchor, Nest can even be used to perform a call-to-action function; absolutely fantastic for marketing purposes.
