Magento Extension: Responsive Menu

E-commerce, Magento

In a previous post, I discussed the Responsive Menu jQuery Plugin. Since it’s creation, I have integrated the plugin with CodeIgniter and Drupal. I also used this plugin on DevoutGeek.com.

The video below displays how to set up (and use) the extension. The Responsive Menu extension for Magento can be downloaded from DevoutGeek.com or Magento Connect.
