The best menu system I've found for WP
By , for WP 3.8.1

I've got high requirements and this is "almost perfect". I'm used to absolute micro-control in other CMS platforms, which is why I say "almost". It will do 99% of anything you could dream up.

The only time I haven't been able to get exactly what I want - a 3 level deep menu system with complete hierarchical tracking as to depth. This isn't the widget's short coming, it is WordPress I suspect.

That being said - using widget logic or dynamic widgets, I can build 2-3 different menu systems that will do precisely what I want in any situation - even up to 5 levels deep or so.

Hat off sir. Where's your paypal donate button? You deserve funding for this.

A Great Solution
By , for WP 3.8.1

This plugin helped me resolve a problem that no other menu widget could. It has obviously been extensively thought out and well developed. Very easy to use, but has many advanced options to solve most non-basic wordpress parent/child problems.

Solves the device range problems
By , for WP 3.8

This interface of a custom menu widget have been thought through and the author is obvius familar with the "problems" Parent and Child pages play along.

This is perfect widget for menues on touch devices. When "no hover" to show children content / pages whitch at the same time has children, OR NOT children, and making the same "levels" be present in a clarified view for the visitor.

Ive been using another nearby widget for many years (Advanced menu widget) but I needed a solution can can handle a more modern logic.

The problem I got that is solved with this plugin:

When a parent page has content, and the children only are in view, ths user 99% will "miss" the parent couse its treated more than a "headline" or "category title" for the human mind. But any breadcrumb will point to the parent and the context / site view. The visitor easy get confused.

And If children has no children, I want the menu to stay at the "same level" as the current page or only current siblings...

This plugin solves that, as one thing of many "logic" flows.

The only "weakness" is the cluttered layout in the widget backend section. MANY OPTIONS. But no siteowner or client will ever see this - couse this kind of settings are to advanced - when you start to need a plugin in like this. So the purpose is not te be cosmetic or have any user experiance as a application. In most other cases Im picky about that if I do a review. "The Theme-developer is not the one who actually gonna run or maintain the site".

Well done mr author, I can imagine all the hours of brainstorm to get the "architecture" and options playing along!

Best Menu Widget Out There
By , for WP 3.6.1

This is truly the best menu widget available to wordpress today. It has strong customization and seems well supported. It is a little confusing at first but then you realize the true genius of it. I have tried all the menu widgets I could find but when I stumbled on this one I knew the search was over.

Bless you for this!
By , for WP 3.5.1

I spent hours, with my limited skills, searching for code or widgets trying to make happen just a fraction of what this plugin does in a snap. So far I can't find a thing to improve or add -- you seem to have thought of everything. OK, maybe the tags and description of the widget need to be tweaked, to make it easier to find; for some reason it did not appear during earlier searches. ;-)
