Fully automatic sidebar menus.
Uses the parent/child relationship of your pages or categories to generate menus based on the current section of your site. Assign a page or category to a parent and this will do the rest for you.
Keeps the menu clean and usable. Only related items display, so you don’t have to worry about keeping a custom menu up to date or displaying links to items that don’t belong.
