Implement Trendy Off-canvas Content in Elementor

Did you see our new flyout on the website? Yes! ๐Ÿ˜ The one that slides-in when you click on the ELEMENTOR WIDGETS menu.

This is built using the Off-Canvas widget of the Ultimate Addons for Elementor!

You too can have this off-canvas panel with any form of the content displayed on your website. But, for what? ๐Ÿค”

  • You can display a flyout menu just like the one we have on our website
  • If you have a huge piece of content that can be optional, you could add that into an off-canvas content widget that can be triggered manually only if the user wants to read.
  • You can show off attractive offers that slide-in through an off-canvas panel.
  • You can add links to related articles and products when the user is scrolling down the page.
These are just a few applications among many others that will help you –
ย 
  • Shorten the length of the overall content of the page (making it look short, crisp and interesting)
  • Redirect users to interesting posts and offers – taking them further into the conversion cycle.
  • Display additional content, tips, tricks and ideas that keep users engaged for a longer time.
  • Use an alternative to simple website navigation methods.

Interesting? I am sure it is!

Let us quickly brush through the basic concepts of what off-canvas content is all about and how has it emerged to make websites more interactive and fun to surf through.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Basic Concept Behind Off-Canvas

Sometimes, we have a lot to say and share with our readers. But, not everyone is interested in all you have to say. Some like it short, simple and crisp!

The main and basic concept behind the off-canvas widget is to let you add such additional information into a block that stays away from the viewport but slides in when triggered. This will make sure that the additional information that you add will be shown to interested users only – and in short, improve user experience and engagement on a page.

This can further be modified and used to display a trendy flyout, a banner to display offers, a panel with another page embedded on it, links to different pages or related posts, etc.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Off-Canvas Content Now and Later!

Facebook Canvas Ads have already become a boon for businesses to place their ads while users are still scrolling through the timeline. This is just a reference we can take of how well the off-canvas content is already working.

The future of it looks bright too! With mobile and small screen devices being popular nowadays, it is important to bring out a solution to display optimized content for smaller screens.

Now, this is where off-canvas makes the place! ๐Ÿ’–

  1. I’d like if this off canvas thing can be activated by default when the page loads and the off canvas can be at the top of the page and it will push the content down. That way it’s perfect for site wide notices etc.

    1. Thank you for the suggestion Simon!

      I will certainly take this forward to our developers to see whether we can implement it in the future. ๐Ÿ™‚
