FREE Accordion Menus are hard to come by. DART Creations have just created a free menu module with an accordion effect for Joomla. It is extremely simple to setup and creates a nice accordion effect using jQuery

While this works, it doesn't work the way you would expect. Typically, accordion menus start folded and open as clicked on. Also sub-menu items are usually folded until you go to their applicable header. This one works in exactly the opposite way on my site. I've tried other accordion menus on this site and didn't have this problem. Also, the end user experience of registering for downloading this was destroyed by what has to be the worst CAPTCHA implementation I have ever experienced; it took 6 attempts to get past it. All in all, it's hard for me to give this a higher rating. Maybe it works, but since there is no demo to be found on the site, I can't tell if it's the code or just me.

This is an implementation of the Dynamic Drive Accordion menu. It is exactly as is - we are replicating their functionality. Probably for it to make more sense you'll need to create two accordion menu modules - one would be open and one would be folder. It module has various javascript options which can be tweaked as necessary to achieve customisations of the functionality. Also, it would have a good idea to get in touch with us, before submitting a review here. I'm sure we'd have fixed the problem.

Re the Captcha, taken your views into consideration and updated the captcha to the Google ReCaptcha and did some improvements including a more clear error message.

Re the demo, we've also set up a demo of the menu on a Joomla 3 site.

It would be nice if you would contact us so that maybe we can ensure that the menu works well as required by people like you. It's one of our newer modules, teething problems are expected.
