  1. hi there – i would like the menu to open down instead of up ie when you mouseover the featured image is below the button. I understand this takes some customising but if you could point me to the code of file to tweak would be happy to play from there.
    thanks for a great plugin

  2. Hi !

    LOVE your plugin !

    I would like to add padding between the images.
    The border option keeps active the link even if I am not roll-overing the image.

    Any solution ?

  3. great plugin, thanks for all your work.

    Just wondered if there is any way to have the menu stay open at the current page?

  4. Hi nice plugin !
    I would like to put many menu accordions with different menu types in a same page. Is it possible ?

  5. Hello

    Love the plugin! Very impressive. As is, works beautifully. One problem.

    This test site is for a school that wishes to use one of the translation plugins (Global Translator or IndoEuropean Translator). As soon as you use either plugin to translate, the image menu gets wacky.

    It seems to add the translated titles in the wrong place (upper right) which kicks the images to the right. Then all I can see is three of my six images. Try it for yourself. Pick any language and you’ll see what I am talking about.

    I have tried setting the configuration to “show title with mouseover” instead of “always” to see if that makes a difference – it doesn’t. I have also tried using each of the different translators, both kick the image over.

    Any thoughts? I would hate to have to give up that “gee-whiz” effect because it breaks during translation.

  6. Hi,
    I have some problem with this plugin. I manage the menu in my dashboard, but the changes settings aren’t saved. I can’t decide what publish in the menu… I can just see the last post, and only if I modify the plugin code.
    Someone have some ideas for solving the problem?
    Thanks a lot.

  7. i suggest to include the function of showing excerpt in the column while making the thumbnail smaller size, as some of the posts might not have image, it looks plain without image in the column so text excerpt will do.

  8. Hi there, Love the plugin! Awesome work. However am wondering how you could add a function where the thumbnails would be desaturated to start with, then flick to color on MouseOver? Have found a jQuery desaturate script but have no idea how to implement it? any help?
