Firstly, great contribution!

 

Although I do have a slight problem with it, I am using style 1 (the vertical fly out menu), when I put the menu in column_left.php it works fine, i.e. all categories show a small arrow after them and when you hover over them the sub menu flies out. (I included as stated the footer tag in the footer for the page)

 

But when I place it inside my own template them menu displays, but each category does not have an arrow after it, this only appears when you click the category, also the flyout only happens when you click the category not when you hover over it?

 

Does anyone have any idea what i've done wrong? and yes I've included the footer tage in my own template as well. All styles and everything work just great, it seems very strange (I am using STS 4 contrib to make my templates) but each template this system generates still includes footer.php from the OSC includes directory which is the same file I use when it works with thedefault template.

 

Cany anyone help? has anyone here used this contrib in conjunction with STS 4?

 

Regards

 

Dan

 

 

I am having the same issue. I have $show_full_tree = true; but it doesnt all the sub cats when hovering over the categories... only when clicking on them

I want to change the url in the flyout menu. I would like it to be the way that only the categories which contain products are fitted with a hyperlink. The other categories should only be displayed as a simple text.

 

I already managed to adapt the code so far that when there are no products within the category the link is '' otherwise the link is correct. The only issue I still have is that even withthe link being '' it is still displayed as a link to my shop home directory.

 

Does anybody know how to solve this?

 

Thanks on advance,

Sven

Hello,

 

I'm using dynamenu for some time now and it works great !

 

But recently ma webhost privider moved to PHP5+SQL5 .... I sometimes now get the categories (usig tree menu) very wide and not finish loading ... Instead of categorie name thze link is shown and it's very very wide at this time ....

Can that be due to a PHP5 ?

 

Reloading the page once usually helps, but sometimes not .... I found it quite disturbing ...

 

Thanks for any help / comment.

I like this menu however it has increased my average page size from about 22k to 100k ... Is there any way to reduce the size? Can I delete some of the CSS?

Yes, if you're using one type of menu only, you can delete the CSS that doesn't pertain to it (it should be evident by the class names and comments what that is)

 

Additionally, for the flyout menus, you can eliminate the containing table tags in the templates if you don't require compatibility with Opera 6 (see template comments for details)...

 

It should be noted that any external CSS and javascript is cached, so subsequent page views are not impacted that much...

Does anyone know how to slow down the menu?

Is there a way I can change the way links work in the tree style menu. Basically I want any category with a sub-category, to simply expand, not go to a page that lists the sub categories.

I am trying for the vertical fly out menu, but I don't think it's working for me, I am using STS 4.5

 

in column_left.php , I put the code include(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'dm_categories.php'); as follow

 

  require(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'whats_new.php');
 require(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'search.php');
 require(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'information.php');
 include(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'dm_categories.php');
// START STS 4.1
}
// END STS 4.1
?>

 

I've copied the images over, functions etc.

 

In the footer, I'm not sure where to put it, I tried a few diff places but not working

 

<?php
 if ($banner = tep_banner_exists('dynamic', '468x50')) {
?>

<br>
<table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
 <tr>
<td align="center"><?php echo tep_display_banner('static', $banner); ?></td>
 </tr>
</table>

<?php
// Output the footer for Dynamenu for osCommerce
echo $GLOBALS['dmfooter'];
 }
// START STS 4.1
}
// END STS 4.1
?>

 

I also copied over stylesheet, any help would be most appreciated.

 

thanks

Is there a way to add a static page to the drop down menu to appear with the sub-categories. I would like to add a link in the drop menu right after the last category id is pulled from the database.

 

The example below will illustrate.

 

Tires - Cars - Trucks

16 inch

17 inch

18 inch

Photo Gallery(static page)

I need to get the pointer to change to a hand when it hovers over the nodes in the same way as it does over the categories.

Can anyone help with that?

Thanks in advance

thanks for your help, I was looking at that earlier, but I had the echo in the wrong part of the file. I added it to the correct location, and also added to footer just in case and it's working great now :)

in looking at www.ir-usa.com/cat

 

if you mouse over the Canon/HP tab... you will see that there are a lot of printers listed there. In fact so many, that the menu goes all the way to the bottom of the page.

 

Is there anyway that I can control the maximum number of printers listed in one column, and then just have what is not listed there goto the next column?

 

Windows Start Menu does something similar to this when there are a lot of programs installed.

 

Thanks for your help....

Yes, look at the configuration options of the menu, there is one to specify max size of submenus, wherein it will display a more link for menus greater than that number (and more "more"'s if necessary ;))

Please excuse how stupid this next question may sound..... but can you tell me the neame of the file that I need to look at for the configuration? I have never understood this part of the site very well.

 

I would appreciate it.

Mark, take a look at the stylesheet.css file as well as the dm_categories.php file.

BK,

 

I am so sorry to keep bothering you with this. I do not have a dm_categories.php file... i even did a search using windows... and it cannot locate such a file.

 

In the stylesheet, what is it that should be changed? I did not see anythign that popped out at me.

 

Tahnks again.

If you don't have a dm_categories.php file, then you don't have Dynamenu installed correctly.

 

You should have a dm_cagegories.php file in catalog/includes/boxes/

hello

 

i'd like to say thank you for this brilliant contrib - its exactly what i needed for my categories menu!

 

 

i'd like to ask if it is possible to do the same for the Aricles Manager navigation.

 

i'm no developer - i tried to get my /boxes/articles.php to do the same as the boxes/dm_categories.php - but no luck for me at all.

 

i'd really appreciate it if someone could help me with this

 

thanks a lot!

 

Tanya

ok - here's my attempt at trying to make the Articles Manager menu the same as the dynamenu. i'v replaced all category instances with topic instances.

 

it works, sorta..... its displaying both menu's - but the menu behaviour is completely whack now.

 

example - if i click on an Article category - it opens up - but it also opens up the Products category, most categories on either wont open at all - so it seems like its opening up the categories with same ID - even though they use different id names in both files.

 

can anyone please help me with this - tell me what i am doing wrong?

 

pls - i'm not a developer - but i am trying... :blush:
