Sorry, but there are better ways to do this now. This project has been deprecated and is no longer in development. This page will be kept online for archival purposes and in case anyone is still interested in the project despite being no longer maintained.

This plugin is a replacement for the now defunct Suckerfish dropdown menu plugin for WordPress.

The plugin generates the code necessary to create a Son of Suckerfish horizontal dropdown, vertical flyout or horizontal slider menu. The plugin produces W3C valid HTML and CSS and only requires Javascript to function for very old browsers such as IE 6. The Javascript is held in an external file which is linked via IE conditional comments, so only the browsers which require it will download the file. You have control over what items (pages, categories, archives, blogroll etc.) appear in your dropdown via the plugins options page.

To style your menu, head over to the Multi-level Menu CSS Generator page. Simply copy and paste the CSS from the generator to the plugins options page.


Demo is available here … Multi-level Navigation Plugin demo


The plugin is available for download here … Multi-level Navigation Plugin


Add the following code wherever you want the dropdown to appear in your theme (usually header.php) and activate the plugin in your admin panel.

This code adds a button for your home page and dropdowns for your Pages, Archives, Categories and Blogroll.

<?php if (function_exists('pixopoint_menu')) {pixopoint_menu();} ?>


You can modify the look of your dropdown by using our new Multi-level Menu CSS Generator page. The generator has been designed with this plugin in mind, so just copy and paste the CSS code from the generator to the plugins options page.

If anyone out there would like a custom designed dropdown, then please get in touch with us via our contact page for pricing information.

Thanks to Patrick Griffiths and Dan Webb for their article which we used as a model for the CSS used in this plugin. And thanks to Miriam Schwab for writing the blog post which motivated us to create it.
