Hello,

I’m new to magento and i followed this tutorial: http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/4_-_themes_and_template_customization/navigation/how_to_create_a_vertical_left_hand_menu

After i followed this tutorial the left navigation menu worked. But it only worked on the homepage, if you select a category the menu will disappear. How do i keep my menu working on all pages?

This is my website: http://www.phone-gadgets.com (sorry it is in dutch)

Im on version 1.6 of magento

Thanks in advance!

You need to put the block inside catalog.xml under default layout section.

Hello,

As the matter of fact the current menu system of Magento is not very convenient. It does not allow you to change the menu structure, add the own links or change the markup.
Consider the Menu Manager Pro. This extension simplifies the creation of menus of different types with different structure significantly.

This extension is a game changer in the entire look and feel of our menu.
We have added promotional item in the menu and this increased the sell rate of these product.
You can give a try with this module which have used in many sites for year before publishing Advanced Magento Menu
Great support from the Mage-menu.com team.
