  • Offset - The number of pixels from the edge of the browser window.
  • Animation Speed - The speed at which the slide out menu will open/close
  • Auto-Close Menu - If checked, the menu will automatically slide closed when the user clicks anywhere in the browser
  • Skin - 12 different sample skins for styling the slick container are available to give examples of css that can be used to style your own slick menu.


The plugin includes the feature to add text links within your site content that will open/close the floating tab.

  3. [dcsl-link action="open"] - open the menu with the default link text.
