Joomla! Menu Wrench—developed by Matt Thomas of betweenbrain™—is a module that is so useful that it really ought to be incorporated into core. Menu Wrench circumvents Joomla's one-menu-to-a-module limitation, allowing you to pick and choose menu items from across any number of different menus and display them on the front end as one integrated menu. Can't image how this might be useful to you?
- You'll no longer need to create those footer menus that are nothing more than a list of menu item aliases to a subset of the main menu. Just configure and publish a Menu Wrench module in which you've selected the specific menu items you want to appear.
- It's great for creating customized "related articles" modules. Sure, you could create a custom-HTML module with links to the desired articles, but it's quicker and cleaner with Menu Wrench.
- Do you need to present a site map that is perhaps more user-friendly (logical?) than one automatically generated by your sitemap extension? Menu Wrench gives you that ability.
- Think about some of the sites you've built recently—you'll probably have your own "ah ha" ideas.
Don't wait until Joomla! Menu Wrench is incorporated into core (wishing/hoping!) to learn how this module can solve some of your menu-wrangling headaches. Take a look at the documentation and then do yourself a favor; download this clean, easy-to-use beauty now. And, yes, of course you'll see it's listed on the JED.
