    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.

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

    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!

    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

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