Quick and easy to use

The extension has been tested by users with basic Magento knowledge and was given a thumbs up for being easy to use.
Smart, fully integrated code
The extension works with the existing store theme and makes full use of Magento's CSS navigation elements. The result? A fully integrated navigation menu without editing template files or repeating custom design work you spend hours on.
It uses the same structure as native Magento's navigation menu, so you can retain existing menu items and category trees while adding new items.

- Fold out navigation and parent headings to organise pages hierarchically – hover over a main menu item to view sub categories, products and child headings

- Navigation block is fully cached so the top menu loads lightening fast
- Fully integrates with your existing Magento theme and CSS
- Integrates with hover effects (if supported by your existing Magento theme)

- Home page

- Cart (with hover mini cart functionality)

- Login page
- Contact page
- Content/CMS pages
