    Hello!

    I am working on a proposal for a client and I can really use some help. :-/ They are asking for a main navigation menu that makes all sub-menus available with hover over one of the menu items.

    Example: http://www.nextgreatplace.com/

    I’m having a hard time finding a plugin or jquery/css code for this, so I’m trying to figure out where to turn for help – and to determine if I need to hire someone to code it from scratch.

    Has anyone worked with a menu like this before and/or know where to get the code for one?

    Thanks in advance. :-)

    You might be able to use Ubermenu and then just add the same parent page in the top level multiple times and just change the labels.

    I spoke with someone at Ubermenu and they think that it’s not the best solution because theirs is a hierarchical menu and there’s probably a cleaner way to do it with CSS and JS. I just want to mention it in case anyone has any other ideas! If I get it custom-coded I think I’m looking at about $500 but it seems like something simple enough that there should be a plugin or something already out there. I’m just not sure where to look or what terms to search for at this point.
    Thanks again :)

    Bill Erickson has a nice menu – check out his instructions here – http://www.billerickson.net/genesis-subpages-as-secondary-menu/.

    Thanks anitac! That’s not the functionality that I need, I’m afraid, but it is certainly a nice-looking menu. :-)

    Hi Tura!

    No, I didn’t find a ready-made solution, I’m afraid. If you end up locating one yourself, it’d be great to hear about it!

    Good luck.

    You could try the Mega Menu – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/jquery-mega-menu/ or UberMenu – http://wpmegamenu.com/.

    Here’s a blog on WPMU on custom mega menus also – http://wpmu.org/create-highly-customized-and-beautiful-mega-menus-for-wordpress/.
