Menu Management for Yii Framework

This module allows you to create and edit themeable menus with nested items. This work is inspired from menu management in Wordpress and tries to provide a similar interface to drag and drop items for setting its order and depth.

The module utilizes nestedSortable jQuery plugin for drag-drop sorting of menu items in backend.
Free CSS dropdown menu from http://www.lwis.net/free-css-drop-down-menu/ is used for menu styles and themes.

The code for menu rendering is borrowed from emenu extension.
The code for implementing nestedSortable is borrowed from the dead project at http://code.google.com/p/at-menu
