We’ve taken split me to a whole new level. Now you can select module position where the subnav will visible. Now you can set a menu title like module title and the menu comes with 2 orientation Horizontal/Vertical.

Off Canvas Menu

Here come the new child in the family. You know that nifty little menu hidden under the main Facebook app feed? Or the one that lives underneath the Path feed that reveals your friends list. We adapted this menu system for Expose so that you can use them today! Thanks to UIKit for their clean and tidy off-canvas plugin.

Opt-out Fancy Menu and Dropline Menu

We removed Fancy menu from core and we’ve plan to bring it back in near feature with more feature and flexibility. We also decided to remove Dropline menu from core as Mega menu has all the feature it needed.

Icon in Module Title

Others changes

Menu codes are fully converted to LESS and now its extremely easy to change the menu style. Everything is now defined in variable and we are using hooks, so you don’t need to remeber the menu selector!

If you ever get the chance to use EasyBlog, EasyDisucss or even free Komento extension you know the quality of their product. All of their extensions are well thought and professionally crafted. Our Blog and Forum also runs their product and we are extremely satisfied. Recently they announced for a new Social extension and I believe that will be another top notch product like EasyBlog and EasyDiscuss.
