Matic menu Module

Editor's Note
  • This extension inserts a hidden backlink to the developer.
MenuMatic is a MooTools 1.x class that takes a sematic ordered or unordered list of links and turns it into a dynamic drop down menu system. For users without javascript, it falls back on a CSS menu system based on Matthew Carroll's keyboard accessible flavor of Suckerfish Dropdowns by Patrick Griffiths and Dan Webb.

I love this module. I used it on 2 different sites, one Joomla! 3x, the other was 1.7 and it worked on both sites beautifully, with no glitches. Highly recommend it.

I've tried half a dozen or so menu systems and this is the best so far. It doesn't mess up the website score on Google insight or yslow.

I give it 6 stars, not 5.

I spent around 5 hours trying out different joomla drop down menus and I couldn't make them look the way my design is, each had a glitch.

This one is simple and perfect.

If you want a drop-down menu that you can easily style with CSS in the CSS file this is the one to get.

Supports vertical menus as well!!!!!

This is a common-sense extension, and there aren't many of those!

Thanks to the developer for making such an awesome extension (who would've thought it would actually be a chore to find a normal joomla dd menu module?).

I thought this module was so good I had to sign up to write a review.

It is so simple to use, as others have said most customising is done within the css file but that's what I wanted anyway! I have spent the last two hours playing with more downloaded menus before I came across this gem. Simply excellent.

I tried many modules, and this is the best yet. The CSS rules are very easy to modify to your liking.

I was looking for a nice menu that I could fully customize using its .css file without any complications or difficulty. I tried a lot of em before I came across this one and I must say I'm really impressed.

Having been unsatisfied with the suckerfish menu modules available at the time, I used Jason Jaeger's MenuMatic ( on another Joomla-based site I built. Since I found it so helpful and easy to use with Joomla 1.6, I posted the info on the community board. A few weeks later this module appeared.

Basically everything is ripped from the above website (including the code, all the default settings, the credits given in the description and some images on the demo site).

That said, the author of the module did a great job turning it into a module. Though most basic settings (such as colour and roundness of corners) still have to be done with css, the module is also highly configurable from the backend (configuring effects etc.).

I'm mostly commenting to give credit to Jason, but I have to say the author did add a fair bit in terms of usability and integration with Joomla.

All in all, great module.
