    Fantastic support A++++
    Above and beyond helpful. My issue turned out to be user error and the guys over here were polite and walked me through the widget settings without making me feel stupid. Way better than what I usually get from plugin companies.

    Not working at twentytwentyone theme.

    • OnPoint Plugins

      This plugin does work with the twentytwentyone theme. In fact we have a whole test site dedicated to the twentytwentyone theme.
      It is worth noting that out of the box the twentytwentyone theme does not contain any widget areas besides the footer. As themes define their own widget areas, there not much this plugin can do about adding sidebar support to a theme.
      If you are unable to see the widgets in the footer, please see the FAQ section which explains the most common reasons why a widget does not show up.

    Advanced Sidebar Menus is a nice little plugin that does what it says it does right out of the box. All you have to do is place the correct widget (for page hierarchy OR post category hierarchy) in the right location. Good job!

    I tried the free version first to make sure it would work for my site thinking I really wanted the paid version. I was right, the paid version is much better and what I needed. This seems like the kind of widgets that should be included in WordPress core, but they are not.

    Thank you Advanced Sidebar Menu for making my project, and my day. 🙂

    Great plugin! Great support!


    I have 2 questions
    1) How can I add the number of posts in each category instead of displaying each post name
    2) If a post belong to a category, then to its subcategory, then to its sub-sub-category, how can I display the post name only on the sub-sub-category?

    Thanks for this great plugin

    So slick I’m just looking for excuses to add menus. 1 in the header, 1 in the footer, 1 in the sidebar, why not… go crazy. If there was an award for the most menus created with a single plugin, I would win it.

    Very easy to use and install plugin. Got my menu up and running in under 10 minutes. I like that you can select from different accordion icons and colors.

    The only issue is I updated WordPress and the widgets screen looks broken and some of the widget buttons don’t work. Then menus still work and it functions ok, but the setting are clunky and look ugly.

    • OnPoint Plugins

      We totally understand what you are saying about the widget forms looking broken. WordPress 5.8 changed the styles of the screen to support using Gutenberg blocks which caused some widget forms (this and other plugins) to look a bit off. Luckily, we accounted for these changes in version 8.6.0 of the basic plugin and version 8.5.0 of the PRO version. If you update your plugins to the mentioned versions you will see there are no longer any issues and everything looks as it should.

    Excellent support!

    Steller for every project. My designer likes to come up with creative and complex menus. Somehow I’m always able to match the designs using Elementor and this plugin’s widget options. Highly recommended. 6 stars.

  11. nickshepherd

    This is great, I’m using this plugin on a site with more than 100 pages and half a dozen categories.

    Previously to have different links on different pages. I made multiple sidebars. Keeping track in the widget area was work, with lots of clutter.

    Returning to a site made months before to change something was a bit daunting.

    This is so simple, if you are using pages, use the child parent relationship and for posts categories.

    I use the default sidebar and two widgets, simple, clean, straightforward…

    As long as I link the page with a parent or post with a category it’s all automatic…
