Horizontal menu even better now!

The greater control Ruben has recently added to the already essential floating menu, has made it even more of a 'must buy' for many of my website clients.

Brilliant! What else can I say? Installed it for my client EcoGold Projects (www.ecogoldprojects.com.au), and I couldn't believe how easy it was. Changed the radio button selection on the menu navigation screen, deleted my #Hsub menu, made some color selections... done! And the end result is a huge improvement over the standard Soholaunch submenus. I love it!
Great Customer Support!

I had encountered a problem using this plugin concerning the customized link... Then after I report this bug, Ruben, the technical support helped me out patiently and solved all my problems eventually. That's a great customer service! Thanks to ViaStep and Ruben!

This addon is exactly what I was looking for, for my site! It's helped my site to look so much more proffessional and it's made it much quicker and easier for my customers to navigate through my site. I'm not very knowledgable when it comes to writing scripts etc; so rely on WYSIWYG....this plugin couldn't have been easier ....it was downloaded and applied to my site in a matter of seconds. I couldn't be happier!!! I Highly recommend it. Thanks Ruben! Kylie -The Bead Faery
Awesome Menu
by chuckdet, Jan 21st, 2007
I am really impressed at the design and flexibility of this menu. It was so easy to configure and so flexible, it is much more than a simple replacement menu. I really like being able to change the entire look, colors, design etc of the menu. This finally allowed me the ability to have the sub-menu system I need without having to direct people to a landing page with all the sub items on it. Great job on this, you guys always deliver incredible products for Soholaunch.
