What a wonderful plugin. I am handicapped and my right arm is not working well, but I own over 50 websites and have built all of them myself. Working with wrong hand (I am right handed and damaged right arm in accident) i.e. left hand takes time. I love everything automatic which makes my life easier. That is why I loooove this plugin. 🙂 Million thanks to the developer(s).

If you have many product or post categories this plugin is a real gem! Easy to configure, and if any help needed Atakan is greatly supportive. Thank you, cheers

This plugin is the only one for include categories in menus. I put 4 stars out of 5 because it remains to clarify the documentation or to include a syntax generator directly on the wordpress site… Regards

When we disable the woocommerce hierarchical option, the plugin still generates the category links as hierarchical mode. I think on line 248 of class-auto-hierarchic-category-menu.php file, the slug param must be passed as “$slug” and not “$slug.’/’.$category->slug”
