Not good enough

Ease of use

It is hard for first time but you have to try.


not enough tutorials and documentation

Value for money

50/50.. You pay for bug fixes. Nothing new from many years.

I used this to: When you use it for menu with over 100 items you need to use cache. But the cache doesn't work correctly. It expand and mark as active menu cached data. This problem exist form years and they doenst fix it. From many years there arent new supported extension. Only bug fixes...

I have been using the Accordion Menu from these guys for many years now, both on my previous sites and my current one - and I absolutely love it. It works fantastically, looks great and the support team is really quick and friendly. I definitely would recommend this extension to anyone =)

Love the product. Probably the best accordion menu around and I've tried most all of them. But what makes this product stand out is the support. These guys are on top of it. Not only did they complete a customization request in a timely manner, they kept me updated on the their progress along the way. Just the way I like it. Thanks Gabor... you guys rock!

My experience with Nextend's Accordian Menu system has been second-to-none. It provided a solution to a problem I'd been having and then some. Flexible, fast and powerful. If there was a downside I inadvertently found a bug and described this bug in a support request. Within hours a response came back with the solution intalled on my dev server and an update patch supplied as a zip file in my email inbox. Thanks to Gabor and the team for such an excellent menu and incredible support. Highly recommended.
