This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



A widget. With no options. See the FAQ concerning current limitations. Pretty much entirely ported code from, where it’s under CC licensing.


  • Menu rolling over level-1 category.
  • Menu rolling over level-2 category. CSS based on link styling from the theme.


  1. Upload vmenu.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Drag “VMenu” into your active widgets.


What’s the gotchas?

It only works at two levels max. And if you have categories with no posts (empty categories) that are subcategories, it makes the menu not display correctly. And it only works properly, really, on left sidebars. And it sorts categories by alpha only right now. And to change any options at the moment you have to go into code.

It doesn’t show menus!

It adds in links to CSS and JS stuff but it’s based on a default install with path to wp-content/plugins/vmenu. Please don’t change that.
