Liersch Menu Widget

This plug-in installs a sidebar widget to display a submenu for current page.

Liersch Menu Widget is a plug-in for WordPress. It provides an easy to use submenu widget that can be used for WordPress themes which doesn't deal with sub pages. It renders nothing if the current page does not have sub pages.

The current version is based on the widget API of WordPress 2.8. This API automatically enables multiple instances of each widget. Configuration values for each instance can easily be used and managed.
