Level of difficulty - If you want to make a changes to the appearance of the menu then high difficulty
Experience of joomla - designed and built several templates in joomla. Not a professional but good knowledge of html, css and php.
Pros - Easy to install, nice amount of control from the front end control panel, excellent support from the developer, FREE!
Cons - Difficult and long process to make drastic changes to the standard css. Problem with drop down menus displaying behind other modules (easily sorted using z-index property). Seems to be an awful lot of code generated, and much unnecessary CSS.
All in all a good extension with very good support. Would definitely recommended.
Good product and outstanding technical support - well done people.
Maybe we could use a bit more of documentation for the css classes which are used in this component. So my overall rating is Good, not Excellent. When it comes to service, I'd say Excellent without any doubt.
All I did was enable it, and give it a module position (copyright position) and it just did it!!!
I really had no idea how to go into the css of a mod and tell it to not drop down, but to do the opposite! Thanks, guys for the fast response with a support question. Next time I'll buy a mod! You deserve it.
I love being able to drop in CSS code within the module manager of the CMS for this. You can easily set your widths for the main menu items here, just by noting the menu item IDs, taking a quick look at the rendered source and dropping in the appropriate CSS right in the CMS...
Fabulous, Thank you!!!!
Not only is this relative easy to use, taking into consideration my limited knowledge, I am sure many for you out there will have no problem using it
Lastly what impress me the most is the excellent support and the attentiveness in guiding me to resolve my issues.
Once again - THANK you
