Advanced Menu by aheadWorks

With the Magento Advanced Menu extension, you can make your website navigation effective. In just two simple clicks, you can choose any look from the admin panel, making your store menu appear the way and the place you want.

Don’t lose another visitor because of endless nesting navigation! Comfortable browsing is one of the most important steps to amazing user and customer experiences. Install the Advanced Magento Menu module and get flexible menu configuration functionality.

The Advanced Menu extension allows you to quickly change the look of your store’s navigation. Without this simple extension, you would need to thoroughly understand PHP and HTML (not to mention have tons of time to spend changing the default option) in order to alter your navigation bar.

With Advanced Menu, you can implement any one of several navigation options that have been expressly designed to fit stores of differing sizes and themes:

Vertical Static
This is vertical layout which uses standard HTML "select" element. Suitable for large stores with a lot of categories - your visitors can see all categories at a glance and make shopping route decision immediately.

Vertical Dropdown
Vertical layout for the sidebar! DIV-based dropdowns which fit your store theme colors, without hidden nesting.

Vertical Folding
This option includes a folding menu with hidden-by-default subcategories.

Horizontal Dropdown
It uses standard HTML "select" element. Suitable for large stores with a lot of categories - your visitors can see all categories at a glance and make shopping route decision immediately.

Horizontal Plain
This horizontal layout incorporates DIV-based dropdowns without hidden nesting. Additionally, it can be matched with your store’s theme colors.

Horizontal Plain (advanced)
This is Advanced Menu extension’s most sophisticated option. It’s best for stores with very large numbers of categories.

Horizontal Static
With this option, there are no pop-ups or hidden nesting. It’s perfect for online stores containing 3-5 navigation links.

Advanced Menu also offers the following advantages:
* Predefined menu positions - left column, content, right column
* Menu Behavior options
* Possibility to display menu at any place of the page via CMS
* Header and Side Menu separate configuration
