Ninja Accordion
Ninja Accordion is just one of many silver level modules from Ninja Forge.

For this review I will focus on the silver plan as that's what I’m currently subscribed to.

First the cons. I start with the cons to make you aware. Although for me they were completely balanced by the pros:

1. Firstly their fee for silver membership is actually $10 not the $5 as advertised and must be bought on a subscription plan. Although there are other methods of payment and different plans.
2. There is very limited if any documentation on how to install and style the Ninja Accordion. I found this initially very difficult and frustrating, initially down to my reluctance to ask the forum.

Now the pros:
When you ask for support their team is truly excellent. They are friendly, helpful, responsive and full of suggestions with no arrogance. Their team and support forum is the best I have used for any Joomla! module. You don’t really need the documentation with such a detailed and comprehensive support. The forum is very welcoming and you really want to reply to threads with your own experience and close problems with the answer. It just feels so rewarding.

I mentioned the $10 fee as a con, well it’s only a con if you can’t afford $10! For $10 you can download all the silver level modules you want, and what a library they have!

This Ninja accordion is just one of many top notch and vastly useful extensions on offer from the team. I have tired similar extensions available from other developers but none to could match the level of customisation that is on offer from the Ninjas.

The Ninja accordion it self is a great extension. By asking the forum I have created a heavily styled and customised menu. The module feels complete, there is a backend admin section and there appears to be very few if any bugs.

If you baulk at the fee, try some of the other silver extension demos. Consider them added extras. I originally paid for the Accordion but was pleasantly surprised with all the added content. Soon that $10 felt like a very worth while spend indeed.

Oh, you can cancel the subscription at any time.

Thanks Mr Blonde.
