Navigation Bar administrator (Menu Extension) - Can’t get it to work!!!!!!

I have installed a fresh copy of latest magento version.
Installed the sample data before doing the above.
Then installed this plugin, made the changes as prompted on the Extensions overview page :
http://www.magentocommerce.com/extension/657/navigation-bar-administrator
Got the Navigation bar menu under the CMS menu in admin.
Added new menu items under it.
But nothing shows up on front page.
Anything else required?
Please help!!!!!

I installed this extension and ran into a couple of problems, first and foremost was that the install instructions didn’t seem to work on a 1.2 magento, at least for me.  A few pages down in the reviews for the module I found a different method and then things suddenly started working great when I used just this -

<?php $aux Mage::app()->getStore(true)->getId(); echo $this->helper('navadmin/data')->drawItem($aux); ?>
- where I wanted the navadmin links to render.

In the install I am using, I put that in the top.phtml of template/catalog/navigation, which places the navadmin items after the catalog links.

You can put that line of code anywhere you want the buttons to be, but they expect to be wrapped in a <ul>.
