JB DropDown Menu for Bootstrap Module

Working with Twitter's Bootstrap, there's a natural requirement to support all framework features.

JB DropDown Menu module displays a menu on the frontend, with the following structure to show the drop down menu with dropdown sublevels:

- Navigation bar (nav class)
-- Dropdown (ul dropdown class)
--- Dropdown Toggle Item (li dropdown-togle class)

The module customizes the native Joomla menu for JBootstrap.

- The module does not load Bootstrap files. They must be provided by the template

Updates in 2.0.0

- Updated to Bootstrap v2.3.2 and Joomla 3.1.5

I rarely review as most solutions work as expected and or require a given amount "tweeking" to get to perform at the level you want.

That being said, I was going crazy looking for a strappy solution that behaved as one would expect, JB Drop Down by Extly installed and worked EXACTLEY as one would expect a strappy menu to work!! great job! and to note, I am using a modified native Joomla 3 Protostar template.

I'm very grateful to the developers of this free extension - it was so easy to implement. If you like to make your own templates and not so hot at javascript then this solves a frustrating problem.

Their support was excellent and helpful, even though the problem was a silly error on my part (CSS related)!

I am pleased to not only be able to use a boot strap menu as a module, but am able to put 2 of the same modules on the same page. :-D Other cool menu modules out there gave me a lot of fuss when working with doubles.

Anyways, great work. This is one of the best menu modules out there.

Thanks for this great extension. It quickly solved all of the searching I was doing trying to figure out how to implement the bootstrap dropdown!

I essentially have to agree with the user 'photografx', this should have been implemented in the Joomla! core. Though frontend templates may not necessarily load bootstrap, which is a requirement for this module to work.


- Quick and easy installation, configuration, customizing and finally loading (will not put a load on your server) of the module
- for free
- quick support (for this free extension!)
- ideal for bootstrap based templates
- CSS classes can be added to the module, menu and list elements


- Bootstrap dropdown menu can only show top-level and one level deep

If you have a bootstrap based Joomla! template and you are looking for a swift module with bootstrap layout, this is certainly a good option.

All in all, the extensions delivers what was promised and it does the job well. For that I rate it as 'excellent'.

.. what I needed ... and what -in my opinion- should already been integrated in the Joomla Core.

Gives you all the classes you need to make a bootstrap-conform dropdown menu.

Nothing more - nothing less ... :)

Thanxx to the Developers

A full evaluation of the extension
Courtesy and Honesty-

Fantastic extension. Did what it said it would.

Pros & Cons of the extension and its performance
Pros- Works.
Cons- None.

Level of support received
- I did not need any support.

Ease of usage and deployment
-Simple to use. Just like making any other menu module.

Purpose of using the extension:
I needed to use the Bootstrap default pill menu look and feel. I was not finding a way to do this with the default core menu so this was a solution for that.

Level of difficulty- Average.

Your experience level with Joomla and web technologies- Advanced User.
