  1. Hey, absolutely love the plugin, it’s truly invaluable! I have a slight problem, theres a spacing issue below the widget in the sidebar. Only happens with this plugin, it’s much too close to the item below it. How would I change this? The url is Many thanks and keep up the great work!


    1. Edwin, very nice website. You can go into the /plugins/accordion-image-menu/css/imageMenu.css and include some margin or padding bottom to the .aim class.

  2. hi,
    I used it as a widget, but it doesn’t work, only can see the widget’s title, no menu appeared.
    why? how do I fix this problem?


  3. Hi,

    thanks for the good plugin. But I installed lightbox 2 plugin and it isn’t compatible… maybe I would try your Flexible Lightbox but I use actually lightbox 2 with the NextGEN Gallery. And before, I tried only lightbox 2 and accordion image menu and no compatibility too. Can you help me ? thanks.

      1. Hi Alain,

        Ok I decided to fight the conflict ! But, my lightbox use prototype and finally I changed my plugin and replaced with Jquery Lightbox. And now all work like a charm. thanks for your encouragement ! best regards, Yann

  4. Good afternoon,

    I cant’ seem to get this to work no matter what i try or how/where i place a shortcode, or a php call.

    Im inserting the following code directly into my page.php right above

    Code i am using:

    (See bottom of post for full page.php code)

    I only want this menu to show on the ‘store’ page as a navigation menu between the product categories.

    Further more, how do you set images for the PAGES, not posts? I cant seem to find any way to do this?

    Any help would be appreciated, thank you.


    Pages: ‘, ‘after’ => ”, ‘next_or_number’ => ‘number’)); ?>

    <?php edit_post_link('Edit this entry.', '’, ”); ?>

  5. There’s a bug in the new version; if you have only 3 items in the menu, the dimensions go entirely haywire, making the menu completely unusable. Add one more, and it seems to work fine. As far as I can tell, this is independent of whether you use shortcodes for settings or use the settings menu.

        1. There is a conflict with jquery. Try to enclosure the jquery calls:

          (function ($) {

          … jquery code here….


  6. hello…thank you very much for this great plugin!
    i started using it as a widget on a website i’m building locally and i noticed a weird behaviour. I deleted all the images inside the posts (pages) but the menu still keeps displaying those images. I cleaned the cache, and even reebooted the machine and the images are still there. Is this supposed to be a correct behaviour ? cause it would really come in handy if it worked like that

    1. Alain, thank you so much for this amazing and intuitive plugin !

      Same thing, on my website things are stucked in closed mode. I use fancybox with the debug option enabled. Trying different shortcodes i still get no animation.

      Do you have any idea ?
