It should have, so that's probably the issue. The other issue is most likely theme related.

I did this time around.
Extract Tree    ./Themes/argentum_enhanced_smf20final/images/menu_images
Is it missing anything?

The children pop out is working fine now, still no background in the menu dropdowns tho, but I would imagine that has to do with the theme itself.

Great, and yeah they should be theme related.

Yeah...if you read the previous pages. The full version will support anything you could think of to do with the menu. All default buttons have their SMF associated permissions and membergroups, however custom buttons are not able to take upon any of those yet.

What kind of code snippet? Not descriptive enough.

Thanks for using it :)

A javascript code snippet for a popup window.

Will this mod support user-defined groups?  I'd like to display certain menu buttons only for two of my user-defined groups.

Also, can I attach a code snippet to the button?

Thank you.

Got it!  I wanted to open NChat in a popup window using a button to invoke it (NChat).  I needed to put

javascript:  blah...blah...blah ;

where the url would go for an external link. 


This is brilliant! Thank you very much!

@djohns - Sorry for my late response, glad you got it figured out; and I'll definitely track a JavaScript action in Pro to fit these scenarios more efficiently.

@ishy - Thank you very much for posting, I appreciate it. :)


ishy, thanks for the feedback.  As a noobie and very rusty on my programming skills it's been intimidating to tinker with complex packages like this one.  Glad the "javascipt: ....;" invokation worked for you. 

Labradoodle, I also appreciate you getting back to me.  I was able to get what I needed working using an add-on permissions manager mod although I ended up uninstalling menu lite and just messed with subs.php. 

When you come out with your pro version(s) I hope you will consider a break for non-profits.  I've just been impressed what people will contribute for their community--SMF being a wonderful example.   As a retiree I do gratis web programming for several non-profits.  Paying for tools comes out of my pocket and the last fellow I hired to try to integrate SMF with a member package, took my (personal) money then said he couldn't do it.  Someday maybe I'll figure it out.

Love your work, have several of your mods installed now.

@djohns - It's definitely been nice to see some new faces around here, let me know for sure if you have any questions bro.

The pro version will be free...I was wanting to recoup some financial compensation for the countless hours I have spent developing Menu Editor, but for a couple of reasons I decided to once again take the cut and walk away with it being free.

Donations are an option, but I will not charge for the actual product.


I'll be donating--I just can't cough up $50 though. 



This is a great mod.
I have a question though...
Is there any option to create a "no link" button;

I want to create a menu with a "header" and then expand all the links below that.
So i don't want the "header" to have any link.
Is this possible somehow?

Thank you very very much :) - The Affordable Host

Matthew K.

Nope, not without custom work.


I can give it a try if you point me to the right direction :) - The Affordable Host

Matthew K.

I don't even understand what you mean, to be honest. Are you trying to add a menu item that isn't a link, or do you want a header ABOVE the menu, or what?


Sorry but my english are not so good.

I want a menu button without link.
Only the second, third, fourth etc buttons under that, will have links.

I hope you understand me now :) - The Affordable Host

Matthew K.

Yeah, you'd have to modify index.template.php, a menu editor file, and probably index.css too.

You can always open up a topic in SMF Coding Discussion, but I cannot help you any further.

you could always create a button with a link to "#"
