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

  2. Ryan C

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

  3. 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!!!

  4. 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!

    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!

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

  7. 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!

  8. Ian

    Many thanks Mat. Excellent service.

  9. 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.

  10. Amy

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

    • OnPoint Plugins

      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.

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

    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.

  12. Jeremy S

    I use this for WooCommerce categories! Fantastic!

  13. Bozz

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

  14. Finn

    Erstaunliche Unterstützung! Danke Mat

  15. WayneM1

    Very helpful site navigation plugin for website with large number and complex hierarchy of pages.

  16. Lenny Lucas

    Ask and you shall receive! I mentioned an idea for a feature that doesn’t exist and presto Matt added it within a few days! Simply magic.

  17. Syedus Manahmed

    I love WordPress but used Joomla because it allow custom menu per category. But this plug-in solved my problem. Now I can show different menu according to categories. Great Job by the Developer!
