  1. Hello Alain,

    I am new to wordpress and I would like to replace my top right menu by your accordion image menu. Which theme file should I modify and replace which line by which one ? I am using Modularity Lite Theme. Sorry for sounding so stupid…help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much !

      1. Hello again,
        The problem is that I don’t know which of my theme files I am supposed to modify. Is it my style.css file ?
        Thanks a lot again for your help!

  2. Hello.
    for some reason the photos doesn’t expand when mouse-over.
    the menu works good but without the images expanding…
    maybe some can help ?

  3. thanks for the info. The accordian menu is something that i havent really looked at much before, but have heard great things about. I think that I would really want to try it when i start designing my website and know that it would be great to make things easier to navigate.

  4. @leapton
    Had the same issue, fixed it replacing : $the_link = $post -> guid;
    With : $the_link = get_permalink($post -> ID);

    Nice plugin ! Keep up the good work !

  5. Plugin doesn’t work.

    Shows only the widget title
    Looking at the generated html with firebug I see no li element generated for the widget, only the header.
    I’m using the Twentyten theme.

  6. oh wow! there’s a lot of questions here, and i’ve read them all. other than deactivating all jquery plugs and reinstalling, i cannot figure out why the menu doesn’t expand in firefox. also, of the images displayed at, i selected the option for the center imaged to automatically open, however the only action i can get on it’s first load is for a random one to open with the exception of firefox. i’d like to also install 2 other accordion based functions and wondering if that is going to be a challenge.

    thank you.
