  1. Rated 5 out of 5


    Let me start by saying that at first I thought this plugin was too expensive and did not buy it. I searched for another sidebar plugin that could make the menu I need and did not find any others.

    I asked some questions first to make sure it would work and was impressed by the speed of the responses “within a couple hours” considering I was not an existing customer.

    I figure screw it, I need get my site up and if it costs me $55, so be it. I can use this on other sites without having to pay more.

    Installing the plugin was simple and what I was used to having to do. I was glad I didn’t have to enter in a license or anything.

    I starting configuring widgets and this is where the plugin won me over. It has a lot of options which means I can use it on many projects and still the widgets are easy to understand and configure. One thing that stands out is the widget will hide options that don’t apply and show them as you go. I really like that.

    In closing, this plugin was well worth the $55. I am glad I found it.

    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!

    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!

    Blown away by the level of support. I have never seen support this thorough and prompt.
    Using this plugin on every site I make.

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

    • Mat Lipe

      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.
