Simple Retail Menus 4.0 Released with Many New Features

I just released version 4 of Simple Retail Menus. I’ve been working very hard on this version for awhile and am pretty happy with it. It has several cool new features.

Thumbnail  images: You can now choose a re-sized version of you image from the WP Media Uploader and include a hyperlink on the image. Normally you might use the hyperlink to link to a full size version of the thumbnail, and this will display in Shadowbox or any modal window you are using on your site. The image link is optional and can be toggled on/off. I also included an image previewer when you roll over the thumbnail in the menu admin section.

Variable Value Columns: The default number of value columns is two. You can reduce the number of columns displayed by using the ‘valcols’ option in the shortcode. The plugin can also be customized to allow for more than two value columns.

Hidden Items: You can now hide a menu item. This is useful if you don’t want to delete the item from a menu, but do not want it to display in the menu.

Admin Bar & Side Bar: You can access the plugin admin side from the node int he Admin Bar now. I also moved the placement of the Retail Menus node in the sidebar higher up so that it now rests along with teh Post, Page, Media nodes in the admin sidebar.

Sortable Menus: You can now sort the order of menus int he main menu list.

I am also very happy with the clean new look of the plugin admin area. I hope you like it too, and I hope you find many uses for this plugin!
