If this is the way ARI Soft provides product support, I want to buy from them (ARI Ext Menus is free, though).
I can feel that they are hardcore programmers, skilled, dedicated. Maybe the programmers themselves are the business owners.
The look 'out of the box' is very good, the performance equally good, and the configuration options are comprehensive.
Support is top notch too. Which for a free extension is well above the call of duty.
Installed without any problem, ease of use.
It does what it's intended to do.
Just sad that they are 2 similar components from same company that may be installed in one package with a little more configuration.
Thank you for it!
Bonus - set the colors for the menu items, the font size and weight and more.
A quick look at the developers forum for help shows they are responsive.
Nice job ARI.
I can honestly say I tried at least 5 other menu extensions all of which had various problems. Either centering issues, lack of functionality, wrong 'look' wrong 'feel' and so on.
However as I was about to give up I tried the ARI Ext menu half expecting it to be problematic just like the other menu extensions, but with ARI Soft's super rapid response to my email queries
providing expert css styles, they literally helped me taylor their module to my site in a matter of minutes. And the advantage is that
the extra css styles can be added to the module parameters in the module itself. And I just wish I could give you the URL of my site for you to see how nice it is for your selves. You can modify colours, text colour background colour, drop down colour and text colour etc. It is truly an exceptional menu extension and am very surprised that it is totally free. I would highly recommend
using any of ARI Soft's extensions and I am about to install their Quiz extension too and will certainly use their services when I have
custom css work to do on my site.
Thank you ARI Soft team.
Had a problem with it working correctly in IE8 but not in Firefox, but a post on their Support Forum brought a simple solution in the form of a piece of code to drop into the module CSS within 5 minutes.
Even if this module is not perfect for your needs, if like me you are a Joomla! novice with very limited HTML/PHP/CODE skills, it is worth using this for the tremendous support.
I have used some of their other modules as well and always had any problems quickly sorted. A great team producing great software.
