Did exactly what I needed
By , for WP 3.8.1

I love that I just added it to a sidebar, I used Display Widgets to choose where it should display and boom, I was basically done. I also LOVE that you ask whether to apply plugin styles or not. I can't imagine the default styles being all that useful, I'd much prefer my theme to style it, which is exactly what I was able to do. Really happy with this. The markup is perfectly logical, clear, and consistent.

Here's some screenshots of it working on a site I'm currently developing.

Very Cool
By , for WP 3.5.1

I use the plugin with the following css code:

.advanced-sidebar-menu li {
list-style-type:disc;
}
.advanced-sidebar-menu li.page_item a,
.advanced-sidebar-menu .child-sidebar-menu li.page_item a,
.advanced-sidebar-menu .child-sidebar-menu .grandchild-sidebar-menu li.page_item a,
.advanced-sidebar-menu .child-sidebar-menu .grandchild-sidebar-menu .children li.page_item a {
color:#add8e6; //link color
}
.advanced-sidebar-menu li.current_page_item a,
.advanced-sidebar-menu .child-sidebar-menu li.current_page_item a,
.advanced-sidebar-menu .child-sidebar-menu .grandchild-sidebar-menu li.current_page_item a,
.advanced-sidebar-menu .child-sidebar-menu .grandchild-sidebar-menu .children li.current_page_item a,
.advanced-sidebar-menu li.page_item a:hover,
.advanced-sidebar-menu .child-sidebar-menu li.page_item a:hover,
.advanced-sidebar-menu .child-sidebar-menu .grandchild-sidebar-menu li.page_item a:hover,
.advanced-sidebar-menu .child-sidebar-menu .grandchild-sidebar-menu .children li.page_item a:hover {
color:#fac800; //active and hover color
}

It runs very well as a sidebar-context-menu.

Usefull plugin

ADVANCED SIDEBAR MENU plugin should be by default in WordPress. It brings an obvious and necessary option which is hard to find.

Great Plugin.

I love WordPress but used Joomla because it allow custom menu per category. But this plug-in solved my problem. Now I can show different menu according to categories. Great Job by the Developer!
