    It took me a little while to figure out to download the plugin from the email. Then was off an running in no time.

    Excellent support.

  4. Jon Plotz

    Saved me hours of creating custom menus manually. I use this in every site I create.

  5. Matt Johnson

    Did not have all the features I needed.

  6. Susan Pease

    Drag and go. I can’t believe how easy this was to setup. I’m not a developer so I needed something that worked without adding code. This did the trick.

  7. Joe Miller

    Support is great. Taking off one star because you have to install the pro version and the free version to use.

  8. Tom Pickle

    Thank you so much for this plugin, it does *exactly* what I was looking for! Saves me tons of time and is extremely valuable. Thank you!

  9. Johan Walter

    ADVANCED SIDEBAR MENU plugin should be by default in WordPress. It brings an obvious and necessary option which is hard to find.
    Author replies quickly and is willing to solve issue
    Great job ! Thank you

    The private intranet sites Im working on have more than 600 . 700 pages organized into 8 sections, with varying access privileges to logged in users. We needed an auto-generated sidebar navigation panel listing all the pages within each section, with sub-sections.

    Ive been working thru tedious iterations of building various extensive custom menus per section, site-maps, dynamic sidebars and widgets.all ending up being a waste of time & resources compared to the ease, efficiency & functionality of this plug-in! I installed this plug-in on a dev site that has 400 pages and 5 sections . worked right out-of-the-box. Every page in each section has a custom sidebar list of parent/child/grand-children/etc sections with ALL the page links.with a single click! Impressive . and the last piece of the navigation puzzle we needed.

    We have now bought the Pro version . unlimited site usage, one time fee . a total no-brainer, since the free version is so well built and simple to set up. Congratulations on the ONLY viable navigation plug-in solution for page-centric Word Press sites! Only wish Id found this plug-in 2 months ago when I started trolling for better navigation solutions!

    Install, activate, and drag to the sidebar in your widgets view, hit save, and done. Lightweight and works straight away. Will use again.

    This plugin brings some amazing functionality by auto generating menus for page sidebars. It.s incredible how powerful this plugin is and it.s author is nothing short of brilliant! Well coded and so useful!

  16. Phantasmix

    Does the job well. Super easy to configure. Thanks!

    P.S. When include parent page option is checked, the children don.t show up. Not sure if its a theme-related glitch. The plugin does what I need otherwise.

    DVersion 4.5.0 Needs some modifications:
    Number of parents to display __
    (0 to hide; 100 or all displays all)
    Number of levels of child pages to display:

    Current __ (maximum)
    Parent 1 __
    Parent 2 __ (grand parent)
    Parent 3 __ (grand-grand parent)
    Other grand-grand parents displays without children
    include only _____ (blank or if not exists to include all)
    exclude _____
    Now the number of children to display starts from highest parent, but not from current item.
    Show parent without children doesnt work.
