Best menu block solution around
After reviewing and testing all related modules to menus and breadcrumbs I can say that this module is the most thrilling one.
I highly recommend to use this module together with Menu Trails module. And I'll work with both maintainers to get this functionality into Drupal core.
This is one of the best menu spliting modules!!!
Easy to install, easy to configure, easy to understand and best of all it works like a charm ... all thumbs up
This module is so, so, so, so sweet!
It solved a major annoyance - and saved hours of work - in about 10 min. In web design, we often hard-code the primary navigation as images, with fancy rollover states.
But how do you then take advantage of Drupal's primary navigation system, and the way it auto-loads the child links of the correct parent link? This module makes it simple. I just built a site where the image links are horizontal across the top, and the second-level links are vertical down the left column.
Previously, our method was to create seperate menu blocks, then assign the visibility of those blocks to the seperate pages.. no more!!
Just link your primary nav (images) up to the pages you want to go to (in the html), create primary menu links normally with the menu system (don't worry - the drupal primary links will never be seen thanks to this module). Now assign the main pages to the main primary links (page edit).
Finally, create a menu block with this module, where you only show the 2nd level of the primary links! Now, clicking on any of the image links will take you to that page, and it will load up the child primary links of that primary menu item. Very nice!
My new favorite module.
Seems like I am always fighting the way that drupal does menus. This is my new favorite module. Works great with pre-built themes, I will likely use it for all of my custom theme projects where needed.
*After installation look for the new tab in the blocks section of your admin. (Somehow I missed this)
