Hello,

I need a Menu Plug-in that can display links to my select Posts, I'll prefer a tree style menu (Collapse / Expand) but its not mandatory.

It should be hierarchical as well i.e. I can have main items and then sub-items.

Thanks

Hi LFLFM,
Thanks for the reply.

I installed "WordPress CSS Drop-down Menu", probably I could not use it properly, it appears in the widgets and I dropped it to one of the sidebars and selected a menu to associate with it.

This can be done with Custom menu as well,

1. I want a menu (probably a builder) that can let me choose my posts to be attached with it.
2. It will be really great i it is by default ready for the right flyout (for the left sidebar) or a collapse / expand kind of thing.

Please guide.
Thanks

Forgot to mention, WordPress Menu Creator is not compatible with WordPress 3.1 the latest version I'm using.

MMmm...
Well... Problem is that when you're using the latest version of WordPress, you lose a lot of plugins, because they are just not ready for it.
Don't know one that will work for sure, sorry.

Do you suggest me to step back and use some older version?

Thanks

Well; honestly, considering you want to rely on some nifty plugins, yes, you might wanna try an earlier version. They are all stable and safe really. The only reason I would see to wanna update to a newer version would be when you actually need one of the new features (honestly I haven't even looked at 3.x, but 2.x suits me just fine).
I noticed that a whole lot of plugins have stopped working with version 3.

3.05 should support most plugins.  3.1 is a beta so no one has updated their stuff yet.

2.x people should update in the 3.x tree for security fixes if no other reason...
