Listing categories in the left hand menu

I’m putting together a template which requires the product categories to be listed vertically in the left hand column. However, I cannot find a way of doing this as it seems to place them horizontally at the top by default. Every other template I’ve seen also does this. Is there any way to list them in a column? Ideally, using the CSS only - as i have no idea where to look for the HTML/PHP that deals with that part.

Any help appreciated, thanks. I have attached the design I’m working from - bear in mind this may not be what the final design looks like but the categories are the ones on the left.

Michael.

Hi Micheal, this extension should do what your looking for or it will at least be a good start/reference towards what you want to do.

http://www.magentocommerce.com/extension/763/vertical-navigation-with-css-classes

It’s easily customizable with some simple CSS, you can see what I’ve done with it here http://shopbrew.com/nfl-merchandise/green-bay-packers.html

This large thread talks about vertical navigation & this extension quite a lot, its how I discovered it and should help you if have any questions.
