Re: Horizontal and Vertical Flyout Category Menu
 
I tried your suggestions and still get the same problem. Im placing the {include file="flyouts/horiz.tpl"} in home.tpl. Im using one of Phil's early releases. I don't see any instructions on modifying the php file(s). Could that be the problem if so what php do I have to modify. Appreciate your help on this. Thanks

That's probably your issue... your signature says you are using 4.1.2 and I would guess Phil's early version was not 4.1 friendly.

In my instructions, you have to modify /include/categories.php

I would contact Phil on this.

Re: Horizontal and Vertical Flyout Category Menu
 
I currently have latest version of Fancy Categories. However, this causes my page to load at about 3-4 seconds. I have 180 sub categories.

Can the Vertical Flyout Category menu perform better than Fanncy Categories with this many subcats? Is it recommended to use this product with this many subcats?

Thanks.

Please help

Re: Horizontal and Vertical Flyout Category Menu
 
Based on your link, it appears that your head.tpl is all messed up.

Please post your head.tpl file, and maybe someone can spot it.

OR -- try this... just for kicks --

BACKUP your current head.tpl; replace it with a stock one. Now what happens?

I think something's wrong with head.tpl, casing the entire site to bounce off-right.
ALSO, did you put the entire vFlyouts into its own table? You should. But I don't think your issue is related to that at this point. let's gte the head working first.

carpeperdiem 02-26-2007 02:38 PM

Re: Horizontal and Vertical Flyout Category Menu
 
PS -- the code you're pasting into head.tpl for the vFlyouts is the js link -- somehow, the table layout got knocked off its ass.
Non-related issues.

Carpeperdiem,
Ok restored the head.tpl and well nothing changed hmmmmm

Sure it did.

The page now renders correctly, but since there's no reference to the CSS for the flyouts, the flyouts don't work.

Are you viewing this in Firefox? Please do. Until your site works in Firefox, don't think about IE.

NOW -- go back and carefully put in the code into home.tpl that Phil gave you (exactly where he told you to put it, before the </head>) -- there should not be any vFlyout code in head.tpl

Now what happens?

carpeperdiem 02-26-2007 03:57 PM

Re: Horizontal and Vertical Flyout Category Menu
 
One more thing -- in home.tpl, I think you have a clone of your categories.tpl include.

Please post your home.tpl and we can help you clean it up.

Carpeperdiem,

in a another post you said:
In my instructions, you have to modify /include/categories.php

I didn't modify my /include/categories.php? where are your instructions maybe I would have better luck to follow them.

Phily you can look at it here:

http://www.omagruene.com/xcart/home.php

my subcategories will not flayout (or show up at all) plus I have 3 categories and only two will show up I followed your README.file and it just won't work I think it is because I have x-cart 4.1.6 gold

Re: Horizontal and Vertical Flyout Category Menu
 
OK, so it IS the $49 option. I read in the first page of posts that it only went out one set of subcategories - which is all I need - but I may have missed the additional info in the last 8 pages of this thread. :) Thanks!

Any way to speed up the menu, my submenu links load horrendously slow looks like it should preload them into cache first.

Yes you can speed up the menu in the sdmenu.js.

I would also like to say, anyone thinking of getting this, it is WELL worth the money!! PhilJ gave me some of the best support I have had in a LONG time!!

His support is even quicker then X-Cart's support... :P

Really just wanted to say THANK YOU again Phil... I =D> your effort!!

Are you using CDSEO? If so, see this post

I am using the one-product-one-category mod, with cdseo, with Phil's flyouts -- works perfectly.

DrQuietus 10-08-2007 01:07 PM

Re: Horizontal and Vertical Flyout Category Menu
 
I made a very silly mistake. The products were inputed as not available for sale, so they were obviously not being linked to it been corrected and everything is working like a champ now. Thanks for the reply though.

DrQuietus 10-09-2007 12:47 AM

OK I have another one.
 
The company I am making this site for makes equipment for steel cable (exciting!!) in the fittings section they have their products divided into three categories, MS Spec Fittings, NAS Fittings and Boeing Spec Fittings. They don't have, and don't want info for these categories. My idea was to have empty categories, that are not linked to anything in Phil's flyout out, to serve as headings for the linked categories. I figured I could use the code for the redirect if only one product in the category and give the li a class and remove the link. This is not essential to the site, it is just for a little bit of added style.

This is a snippet of Phils (I hope I am not doing something I shouldn't for posting it, I left some stuff out in case) code:

[removed by cpd]


this is how I almost got it to work:

[removed by cpd]


It is applying the "nolink" style to all the categories, not just the ones with no products, so it is a problem with the {if $products|@count eq 0} part of the code I am guessing. How do I need to change it for this to work? I am sure there is a way to do this, I am just not knowledgable enough to pull it off.

It would be best to contact the developer for permission before posting 3rd party code.

This mod works great for what we have, but there is one thing... it doesn't validate to w3c. The problem appears to be nested tags.

I get the following error..
"Most likely, you nested tags and closed them in the wrong order. For example <p><em>...</p> is not acceptable, as <em> must be closed before <p>. Acceptable nesting is: <p><em>...</em></p>

Another possibility is that you used an element which requires a child element that you did not include. Hence the parent element is "not finished", not complete. For instance, in HTML the <head> element must contain a <title> child element, lists (ul, ol, dl) require list items (li, or dt, dd), and so on."......a total of 104 times! ;)

Is there any chance the author will update this mod so that it will validate?
