Drop down menu module "mod_superfishmenu"

"Superfish is an enhanced Suckerfish-style menu jQuery plugin that takes an existing pure CSS drop-down menu (so it degrades gracefully without JavaScript) and adds many features." The module is combination of Suckerfish-style menu and the Joomla menu module. As a result we have a module that allows to easily create and manipulate dropdown menus. Comes with many configuration options such as shadows, arrows, vertical menu, horizontal menu, navbar menu, iframe for IE6 use, fade in, slide in, fade and slide in, opacity, intelligent mouseover handling, and more.

If the template you ordered contains themod_superfishmenu module it can be found in the templete sources folder, search for the mod_superfishmenu.zip file.

If the module is not included into the template you can download it from extensions.joomla.org
