    Just what I was looking for. I had been trying to do this as node tabs however it wasn't ideal, but having the ability to just add whatever link you need is perfect, also the ability to colour code links is a nice little bonus.

    Excellent add-on.

    Any forum needs social sharing to be more prominent if it's going to serve in the Twitter and Facebook age, but it took me a while to find one that did what I wanted with the options I wanted. This one is it.

    Absolutely easy to use and very helpful. Saved me a lot of time. Thanks for the free add on! This makes the task of adding to the navbar very easy.

    WOW talk about easy-to-use, this add-on is most certainly that!

    Of all the modifications (for vB) or add-ons (for XF) that I've ever used to add a tab/link into the Navigation Bar, this one was the most intuitive I've ever come across. Kudos for such a great working and easy-to-use resource!

    Works great! A suggestion might be to delete/edit the current menu items as well. For now; I will use the documentation to edit the menu items. :)

    A must have for any forum, You can always use Tabs and this addon is perfect to add tabs across multiple themes. This addon is used on every forum I own.

    This guys addons are the BEST. Just added a page and needed its own link in the navigation bar, this did it and it highlights it when your on that page unlike if you were to add it manually

    Does the job really well, and you can even change the colours to make it look really pretty or to separate categories, etc :)

    Great mod, easy to use and straight forward. The author was also very helpful in resolving any issues that came up.
