That being said, I was going crazy looking for a strappy solution that behaved as one would expect, JB Drop Down by Extly installed and worked EXACTLEY as one would expect a strappy menu to work!! great job! and to note, I am using a modified native Joomla 3 Protostar template.
Thanks for the review and suggestion.
What do you think should be improved for it to be worth 5 stars to you?
