If anyone can get additional sub-categories to fly-out further, please add the code modification here.

This mod takes about 30 seconds to implement as is. Thanks again.

Hi Xcart Experts,

Can some please post a snippet of code for the head.tpl

skin1/customer/home.tpl just before the </head> tag.
<LINK rel="stylesheet" href="{$SkinDir}/flyouts/vert.css">
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript1.3 src="{$SkinDir}/flyouts/menu.js"></SCRIPT>

Here is what I have for the above, could someone please tell me if this is correct?

</TITLE>
{ include file="meta.tpl" }
<LINK rel="stylesheet" href="{$SkinDir}/{#CSSFile#}">
<LINK rel="stylesheet" href="{$SkinDir}/flyouts/vert.css">
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript1.3 src="{$SkinDir}/flyouts/menu.js"></SCRIPT>
</HEAD>


Please post snippet of where to place this code below for flyouts to appear for the categories menus area.

{include file="flyouts/vert.tpl"}



Thanks a bunch! Its been one of those days!

Hi shipmerchant, your head.tpl code is correct. Where you put the menu is up to you. If you want it as shown in the screenshot, locate skin1/customer/home.tpl and replace

Code:
{ include file="customer/categories.tpl" }

with

Code:
{include file="flyouts/vert.tpl"}

Incidentally, if anyone has solved the reason why it shows a broken sub-menu for categories without subcategories, please post the code.

This is the code I thought would work.

Code:
{if $subcategories} Show the DIV {else} Don't {/if}

Default Note on limitations

This is cool but I misunderstood the limitations, it is not that it will only display one level of subcat - it will not work at all if there are more levels.

(correct me if I am wrong)

Yes, Phil's mod shows root categories and one level of sub-categories. It does not show anything deeper in the menu. This may be OK, as it is lean and you can select further in the main template.

Showing further cats would result in a similarity between this and the fancy cats mod. But, I would love to see a solution to having at least one additional subcats. level....
