    I purchased the Pro version and does exactly what I want.

    Keep up the good work and I wish you all the best!

    I couldn’t get the menu to show up in Elementor.

    • Mat Lipe

      I’m sorry to hear you had a bad experience using the plugin with Elementor.
      We do have many users who have been successful using this plugin with Elementor currently. Normally, if there is an issue with Elementor it turns out to be a small widget settings change that is needed.
      Please reach out to support so we can get this working for you.

    This is a very adaptable plugin. Now we can have the links we want on each page: Links to all of the main pages via the WordPress menu, and links to sub-pages with the Advanced Sidebar Menu. Now, instead of building a separate website for each of our Instructors, we can simply give them a few pages on the main website, and use the Advanced Sidebar Menu to provide links to only their pages. We haven’t experienced any problems with this plugin, it does the job just the way we expected it to.

    Having auto-generated menus based on page hierarchy is an amazing feature that should be incorporated in WordPress! This is an amazing plugin. More importantly, it is great for developers since the author has selectors to identify how deep you are in the hierarchy (parent/child/grandchild) making CSS very clean and easy, without nesting.

    Very useful and easy to use. When I ran into an issue this week, the plugin author looked at my site individually and updated the plugin to solve the issue. Couldn’t be happier.

  7. Delores

    The only menu plugin that doesn’t make my site run slow! I LOVE this plugin. 🙂

    I submitted a request for beaver builder support and within 2 days Matt added it.

  9. tamara

    Brilliant plugin, the pro version did exactly what i wanted and after needing some tweaking to the functionality Mat helped me with some additional code to do what i wanted. Great plugin and support is second to none.. thanks again Mat!!!

  10. Eddie

    I needed to create a sidebar menu for a client of ours that matched the footer navigation.
    This plugin did just what I needed.

    5 stars to you!

  11. lynda.halley

    Our organization is working to convert 3 support documents from InDesign > PDF to WordPress. Each of these documents include at least 60 pages. Converting the pages has been hours of work but building a sidebar TOC was a SNAP with Mat’s Advanced Sidebar Menu (and we got the PRO version)!

    And, he answered a support question super-quick.

    Thank you, Mat! YOU ABSOLUTELY ROCK!

  12. wyatt

    This is exactly what I need. Mat good sir, you’re a God send. All the 5 star reviews for you!

  13. Jerod

    Version 3.1 makes me happy! I use this plugin on all sites I design. I could always make the menu do what I want with filters, now I click checkboxes.
    Thanks again for the years of great support!

  14. Ian

    Many thanks Mat. Excellent service.

  15. Wade K

    Blown away by the level of support. I have never seen support this thorough and prompt.
    Using this plugin on every site I make.

  16. Amy

    All listed features work fine. I would have liked the plugin to use WordPress Menus instead of automatically generating menus.

    • Mat Lipe

      I’m sorry to hear the plugin does not have all the desired functionality. WordPress has a widget built in called “Navigation Menu” which allows you to use a WordPress menu as a widget. As a pro customer you automatically have priority support available. Please reach out to me via the contact form and allow me to help you style the Navigation Menu widget.

    • Mat Lipe

      I wanted to stop in to let you know that the PRO version now supports WordPress Menus.

  17. Taylor95

    So many choices I thought, is this plugin going to make me coffee as well?
    I am not a nerd and was worried I would not know how to use the choices. I used the customizer to try out the widget choices. Uber easy to understand, I figured it all out easy.

  18. Jeremy S

    I use this for WooCommerce categories! Fantastic!

  19. Bozz

    This is a great replacement to the JC Submenu (RIP) plugin.
