Want a juicy story? I was working on a website that needed a pull-up menu to be sticked at the bottom of the browser window. I searched. Found some solutions. Tried them. Nightmares!
I discussed briefly with MaxiMenu CK dev. He assessed the feature, probably wondered if it would really add something to the product... and decided to do it. In less than a week, it was in, and with the quality of what I'm used to with JoomlaCK stuff...
Check out there... Nothing will bring you that much for that price, even if you buy all the various plug-in. By (really) far! And regarding a REAL pull-up menu, this is the only serious one. Or prove me wrong...
For me anyway, the most important to keep in mind is that:
- works perfectly
- get plenty options to make it shine and different from one site to another
- benefit from a great support and regular updates
I just love it. You will to.
thank you for your great review :)
Easy to set up and works right out of the box.
Besides the standard setup there are a million things you can do with this menu - it is so versatile and can be tweaked in so many ways, so I purchased the documentation to be able to do exactly what I wanted.
The documentation is very clear and thorrough, and helped me through most of what I wanted to do.
However, there were 3 things I couldn't figure how to do, so I wrote in the forum - and Ced helped me within hours (probably due to time difference - once he replied I got extra answers even faster), so the menu now looks exactly like I wanted.
I recommend buying the documentation, so you get a clear picture of what you can do and how – otherwise you’ll get lost in all the possibilities… ;o)
Perfect! Couldn't ask for more. :o)
Thank you so much, Ced! A giant thumbs up for both your work and your support. :o)
Thank you for your great review :)
Up and running in minutes
Confusing at first
Overall, very nice job. Thank you.
thank you for your great review :)
And - EUR 7 for documentation???
I just woulk like to tell you that you can do a megamenu without buying anything, but of course it is not as easy as with the plugin.
You can use the params [col=180] and other to do the submenu columns.
Smooth menu operation has received very favourable comments from users. I've since purchased the add-on plug-in for a few euros - a token of appreciation for the support given on the author's forum.
Bien fait, CK.
What really sets this apart however is the level of support in the forum. I posted a problem I was having in the evening, and by the morning Ced had replied, pointing out the silly mistake I had made.
Documentation is good - reading it through from start to finish rather than jumping in at the middle would have prevented my problem in the first place.
As far as having to pay for the manual--it's only seven euros. If I can afford that I don't see how anyone couldn't. And it's only fair that Ced receive something back for his fine work. There are some gaps in the manual and sometimes things get lost in the translation but other manuals--costing much more--this one is clearly written, with lots of graphics to walk you through most any step. Finally, Ced goes out of his way to be helpful and accomodating--so much so that I am beginning to think that he has a laptop attached to the hip. Thanks Ced for a great product!
It's really worth to spend a few euro in the cheap parameters plugin to spare time. But on the opposite of other Non-Commercial extensions, if you don't buy it, you still can use all the features.
Last but not least, Ced is proactive and not trying to simulate having a big team working for him.
Excellent extension and service.
