menuWerx is a PHP class to generate a menu for your site.

I like the tutorial, it's very simple and the sad part is that I can't find any good tutorial on Menu Werx.

Thanks for sharing.

I attached an image of the results from the code snippets:

It doesn't exist anymore as it was OVER 7 YEARS AGO.
