My Ninjas, how I have missed you!
I am working on a new site for a client and instead of doing my normal bit of custom HTML for an image menu I want to use the joomla menu system in conjunction with sliding doors this time. I've attached the mock up so you can get an idea of the ideal finish to this - worst case scenario I'll go do an image menu, but I really want to get into this.
The problem is mod_mainmenu doesn't seem to play MVC like most other things - so I've checked out JED and come up with extended menu - which seems much easier to skin than the default menu that comes with the core.
I've been looking at this as a guide, but before I get too heavy into this I wanted to ask the gurus here if there is another module/approach I could/should take.
Any help, as always, is appreciated
