  2. I also search for a solution to use the thumb of an article. Everytime I upload a new photo to my post, the picture in the menu changes. I want to affect the shown picture.@borntofly

  3. I am working on installing the accordion menu to a new website, but for some reason the images are not sliding. I have tried deactivating all other plugins and that doesn’t seem to help. All of the images are showing up, in their closed state, even with settings to have one of the images in the open position they all remain closed. In short everything seems to be working with the plugin except for the jquery slid/open effect. anybody have any ideas on what the problem could be?

  4. Hello,

    does anyone know how to hack this great plugin to show the wordpress thumb in the menu???

    Thanks a lots

  5. The menu, when in vertical orientation, is too wide for my website. How can I make it thiner? Thanks and God bless!

  6. Nice plugin, but doesn’t work well with some other plugins which use jquery.
    I had to use $image_menu .= “var J = jQuery.noConflict();\n”; to get the images expand. Because I wasn’t gonna deactivate WP-Featured Content Slider.
    I hope you will upgrade it soon.

  7. Hi there
    I love this plugin, but when trying to put it online, it only shows 6 pictures on the 11 needed. When looking the source code of the page, the 11 li items are in the source, but totally unable to see the 5 missing one…

    Any idea ?

  8. I do understand a bit but I don’t actually know how to work with PHP, CSS and even less with Java or AJAX. I’ve installed your plugin and follow the step by step in the settings, giving each category a order. However, how can I say to the plugin where are located the categories images. I know that in posts I can define images that is going to appear but I don’t know how can I do that with categories. Could you help me?
