The original version from does not work in Joomla. After much testing,

I managed to get it to work inside a Joomla content item. I also wrapped the entire script into a plugin for your convenience.

Also, the look and feel of the original version is a bit too dull. So I changed it to that of the Accordion Menu Apple style

As mentioned earlier, if you don't like the look and feel, you can easily change this through CSS.

* The default menu is "Drop Down Menu" or "topbar". Demo here.

This was exactly what I was looking for as I needed something simple and I needed a plugin, no module so I was able to integrate it in a module without any conflicts.
Perfect! Thanks a lot, works like a charme.

Thanks for this wonderfull plugin. It is working on first shot. I was making some minor modification for not showing the down arrows, because all my top menus has submenus, so I dont want the down arrow to appear at all. Also put style="cursor:default" for showing the arrow pointer instead of hand pointer, where I need it.

Thank you kksou

Thanks for the good plugin, could come in handy in certain cases, is there any way to customize the Menu to display a certain Menu you specify in Joomla?
