Question Highlight current menu item

Hello!

You should modify the "skin/common_files/customer/categories.tpl" template and add {if $c.categoryid eq $cat}style="font-style: bold;"{/if} condition into the category rendering loop.

You can also replace $cat with $current_category.categoryid if $cat happens to not be available on the page you are on. It may be a more consistent variable.

Thank you Alex! But where is that 'category rendering loop'?

My code looks like that:

Code:
{if $categories_menu_list ne '' or $fancy_use_cache} {capture name=menu} {if $active_modules.Flyout_Menus} {include file="modules/Flyout_Menus/categories.tpl"} {assign var="additional_class" value="menu-fancy-categories-list"} {else} <ul> {foreach from=$categories_menu_list item=c name=categories} <li{interline name=categories}><a href="home.php?cat={$c.categoryid}" title="{$c.category|escape}">{$c.category|amp}</a></li> {/foreach} </ul> {assign var="additional_class" value="menu-categories-list"} {/if} {/capture} {include file="customer/menu_dialog.tpl" title=$lng.lbl_categories content=$smarty.capture.menu} {/if}

As Cherie says...
Code:
{foreach from=$categories_menu_list item=c name=categories} <li{interline name=categories}><a href="home.php?cat={$c.categoryid}" title="{$c.category|escape}"{if $current_category.categoryid eq $cat} style="font-style: bold;"{/if}>{$c.category|amp}</a></li> {/foreach}

Close!
Code:
{if $current_category.categoryid eq $c.categoryid}
I think that's what you meant.

Thumbs up Re: Highlight current menu item

Went nuts with these templates!

1. The template path is not ⌠skin/common_files/customer/categories.tpl■ but ⌠skin/common_files/modules/Flyout_Menus/Icons/■ as far as I use Flyout Menus module.

2. I almost got mad trying to figure out why all changes were not displayed on the website. The answer was simple √ I had to clean cash with /cleanup.php.

3. Had to modify the code to

Code:
{if $current_category.categoryid eq $c.categoryid} <a href="home.php?cat={$catid}" style="text-decoration: underline"> {/if}


So now the whole <li> block looks like this:

Code:
<li id="cat-layer-{$c.categoryid}"{interline name=$loop_name additional_class=$additional_class}> {strip} {if $config.Flyout_Menus.icons_disable_subcat_triangle eq 'Y' and $c.subcategory_count gt 0} <a href="home.php?cat={$catid}" class="arrow" onclick="javascript: return switchSubcatLayer(this);"></a> {/if} <!-- current category highlight --> {if $current_category.categoryid eq $c.categoryid} <a href="home.php?cat={$catid}" style="text-decoration: underline"> {else} <!-- /current category highlight --> <a href="home.php?cat={$catid}" class="{if $config.Flyout_Menus.icons_icons_in_categories gte $level+1}icon-link{/if}{if $config.Flyout_Menus.icons_disable_subcat_triangle eq 'Y' and $c.subcategory_count gt 0} sub-link{/if}{if $config.Flyout_Menus.icons_empty_category_vis eq 'Y' and not $c.childs and not $c.product_count} empty-link{/if}{if $config.Flyout_Menus.icons_nowrap_category ne 'Y'} nowrap-link{/if}"> {/if} {$c.category|amp} {if $config.Flyout_Menus.icons_display_products_cnt eq 'Y' and $c.top_product_count gt 0} ({$c.top_product_count}) {/if} </a> {/strip} {if $c.childs and $c.subcategory_count gt 0 and ($config.Flyout_Menus.icons_levels_limit eq 0 or $config.Flyout_Menus.icons_levels_limit gt $level)} {include file="`$fc_skin_path`/fancy_subcategories_exp.tpl" categories_menu_list=$c.childs parentid=$catid level=$level+1} {/if} </li>


4. ⌠font-style■ didn▓t work out for "underline" so I changed it to ⌠text-decoration■.



And finally it works! Thank you guys very much for help!

Thanks this works great.
Is it possible to keep the parent category highlighted when a user clicks on a sub-category?
