Restyling your menu

Unlike other menu plugins for WordPress, this one allows you to totally restyle your menu to look however you want, but you never need to touch a line of code to do it. You can totally restyle your menu and rearrange the menu contents all within your WordPress installation via an easy to use interface.

The editor for restyling your menu
The editing panel used to restyle the design of your menu. You can change colours, text sizes, boldness, italics, use graphics or even add a smooth shadow effect to dropdown menus all from the easy to use interface.

The editor system operates from your own site, but behind the scenes it sends your design preferences back to the PixoPoint server for processing. The required CSS data is then sent back to your WordPress install for it to be used in your menu. When you save your design, that CSS is saved into your WordPress database. The plugin only needs to access the PixoPoint server if you choose to modify the design in the future.

Arranging menu items

You can choose from a selection of different menu items to include in your menu, from Pages to Categories, Blog posts or even a search box can all be added to your menu via an easy to use drag and drop interface in the plugins admin page. For those of you looking for the ultimate control, you can even choose one of the custom code boxes to insert whatever HTML code you wish. For those using the Pages option, you can rearrange your WordPress Pages via another simple drag and drop interface under the ‘Advanced’ tab in the plugins admin page.
