hehe, yeah! ... I'm still not that impressed by FC.
Mine's only 7k, easy to customise and SE friendly.

So does it now do sub-sub-categories or did you just fix the broken link part?

No, but I'm working on one that does. The broken link is fixed in this one.

Check the tpl file and the ' include file= ' file url

Thanks


The Smarty code used to generate the menu categories will NOT work in V4.1.0, because x-cart have changed the way the php code builds the $allcategories, $categories and $subcategories arrays..

X-cart say this was done to reduce memory usuage and load time.

I discovered this problem with the other Free Menu from the authors website (the multi-colour menu) which works OK in V4.0.18 and has 2 sub levels. I only use 2 colours and have written Smarty and JavaScript code to auto generate the menu categories for V4.0.18.

I'm about to add a 3rd sub level and modify my auto menu generation code to work with the new php categories arrays in V4.1.0.

Anyone using code to access the any of the categories arrays, should note that the php code has changed the way the categories are built in Version 4.1.0.

Also Don't forget that the DOCTYPE in V4.1.0 is now Xhtml Transitional compliant The full DOCTYPE declaration can be seen in file 'customer/home.tpl

second try
 
I integrated the vertcal flyout menu (works great), but is there a way to pick the order of the flyout/sub-categories. As of now the order is generated alphabetically. I set the order positions, but it is only sorted to those specs when the main category is clicked, not on the flyout.

Any Ideas?

Hi, this is fixed in the latest version, cats/subcats are sorted by their 'sort position.

Online Michael 05-02-2006 07:41 AM

Hi PhilJ,

you say you're working on a sub, sub category fix. How far away is it and how many sub category levels are trying to implement? Is it possible to have it do unlimited sub categories????

mfcopier 05-10-2006 02:34 AM

Well looks like its not free now where is the download page?

Try this link for Flyout/dropmenus

http://www.ricom.co.uk/resources.php

force8 05-10-2006 06:31 PM

this works with 4.1


replace your vert.tpl file with this:

Code:

{* Vert Flyout Menu START *}
{if $config.General.root_categories eq "Y"}
<table class="vflyoutwidth" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
<tr>
{foreach from=$categories item=c}
<td style="cursor: pointer;" class="vrootcatbg">
{$c.category|truncate:20:"...":true}
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>
<div id="linkmenu{$c.categoryid}" class="vanylinkcss">
{foreach from=$allcategories item=cat}
{if $cat.parentid eq $c.categoryid}
                {$cat.category|truncate:20:"...":true}
{/if}
{/foreach}
</div>
</td>
</tr>
{/foreach}
</table>
{/if}
{* Vert Flyout Menu END *}


let me know if this was helpful

seth@lowel.com 05-18-2006 11:04 AM

i fixed it

PhilJ 05-18-2006 11:15 AM

cool

seth@lowel.com 05-18-2006 11:32 AM

Cant believe someone responded so quickly.....
The fix is:

"wmode=transparent"

It needs to be put in two places, in the flash call.
1) throw a
<PARAM NAME="wmode" VALUE="transparent">
before the <EMBED

2)
in the embed (i put it after the "quality" ) add:
wmode=transparent



OR in publish setting,
go to the HTML tab and in window mode select tranparent

Screw IFRAMES


thats it. fixed my problem, put the flash to the "back layer"

words getting cut off in submenu
 
Hi,

Some of my submenu headings are getting cut off because they are too long and are truncated with "..." at the end. Does anyone know how I can fix this.

take a look http://www.new-media.com.au

Thanks

PhilJ 05-24-2006 10:20 AM

in skin1/flyouts/vert.tpl

If you don't want to shorten the categories, remove...

Code:

|truncate:20:"...":true

...or change the value to whatever length you want.

Re: Horizontal and Vertical Flyout Category Menu
 
This won't work for me in IE. We thought I might have changed something, so I reverted to original code and it still would not work in IE 6. I use a 7 Dana template so maybe there is something there, but I guess Phil gave up trying to help me get it working. Anyone else have problems with this and discover a fix?

Did someone fixed this? I have the same problem but with horizontal flyout menu. Subcatecories are sorted by name (alphabetical) and not by position.
Any advice?
Thank You

In 4.1.3, you can specify POS of subcats, and Phil's mod respects the POS of the subcat.

If 4.0.x does not parse the POS of subcats, this may be a php mod. I don't know how to do this. I'm just saying that 4.1 does this natively.

Thank You for Your answer. 4.0.x doesn't parse subcats's POS and I can't do this php mod. Hope someone out of here can help me.

Re: Horizontal and Vertical Flyout Category Menu
 
Is there a bug in this mod when using IE7? My flyout menu boxes don't fly out now that I've upgraded. And, each box is now separated by about the height of a box.

Re: Horizontal and Vertical Flyout Category Menu
 
I have been trying to get this to work for hours. Was hoping someone can help me get this working for me. I just have 2 categories with a few subs underneath each one.
In home.tpl right before the </head> tag I have:
<LINK rel="stylesheet" href="{$SkinDir}/{#CSSFile#}">
<LINK rel="stylesheet" href="{$SkinDir}/flyouts/horiz.css">
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript1.3 src="{$SkinDir}/flyouts/menu.js"></SCRIPT>

Also in the body of home.tpl I have:
{include file="flyouts/horiz.tpl"}

When I check out my site all I see are the two menusep.jpg images nothing else. If anyone can lend me a hand I will greatly appreciate it. Thanks

carpeperdiem 02-07-2007 08:23 PM

Re: Horizontal and Vertical Flyout Category Menu
 
First thing, your syntax for the css links could be better. Try this:

Code:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="{$SkinDir}/{#CSSFile#}" />
 <link rel="stylesheet" href="{$SkinDir}/flyouts/horiz.css" />


What flyout mod are you using?

Where are you placing {include file="flyouts/horiz.tpl"} in home.tpl? You might try (brute force) and putting the include into its own table, such as:

Code:

<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
<tr>
<td>{include file="flyouts/horiz.tpl"}</td>
</tr>
</table>


PS -- I do this for my site.

Are you using Phil's code or something else?Did you follow the instructiuons to the letter and modify the php file(s) as required? Did you upload the css?

PPS -- you may want to center your entire site if you're going to constrain it to 773px wide. Personally, I see no need to support 800px -- FYI, my january stats tell me that less than 1% (.86% to be exact) of my visitors have screens smaller than 1024 wide. Something to consider. The difference bewteen 773 pixels and 1000 pixels is almost 30% more... that's a LOT of screen real estate to give up... FWIW.

I hope something in here helps you.
