Masonry Post Gallery Creates a customizable grid or masonry styled gallery of posts using just a shortcode. This is a FREE and FULL VERSION plugin that does NOT limit its functionality until you have payed. While a donation would be nice, no money is required to use this plugin.

Auto-Hide Sticky Header Auto-hide sticky header is a shot that shoots down two rabbits: makes site navigation easily accessible anywhere on the page and saves content space at the same.

Look at your analytics. What are your experience’s key sections?
Responsive Multi-Level Menu A responsive multi-level menu that shows its submenus in their own context, allowing for a space-saving presentation and usage. View demo Download source Today we want to share an experimental drop-down menu with you. The main idea is to save space for menus that have a lot of content and sub-levels. Each sub-level in this menu will be shown in its own context, making the “parent” level disappear.
Responsive Navigation Patterns Update: I’ve also written about complex navigation patterns for responsive design. Top and left navigations are typical on large screens, but lack of screen real estate on small screens makes for an interesting challenge.
