Create beautiful scrolling driven navigation lists with stacking headers that remain visible at all times. Scroll around on the plugin homepage to see it in action.

A minimal HTML structure for Slinky to work with can look something like this:

And the accompanying CSS:

.nav {
  position: relative;
  height: 400px;
  overflow: hidden;

.scroller { height: 100%; overflow: auto; }

Slinky doesn’t make any assumptions about the tags and classes you are using but it does expect to find an element with hidden overflow wrapped around a scrollable element. Inside of it content should be split into sections. The first child of each section is considered to be the header.
