Answer: 
You should check "Codnitive_Sidenav_Block_Navigation::_renderCategoryMenuItemHtml()" in this path:
[magento_root]/app/code/community/Codnitive/Sidenav/Block/Navigation.php

Inside "_renderCategoryMenuItemHtml()" method there is a variable named "$classes" which is an array of category classes.

When we enable "Use Flat Catalog Category" in the Magento Backend, no more sub-categories are displayed in the sidebar navigation. Only the parent categories remain. Is this a known behaviour?

Answer: 
I think i solved it myself. In app\code\community\codnitive\sidenav\block\Navigation.php at line 90 i changed to following:
$children = (array)$category->getChildrenNodes();
to
$children = (array)$category->getChildrenCategories();
Now it is working with Flat Catalog Category enabled.

Answer: 
Hi,

You can use extension's style sheet:
[magento_root]/skin/frontend/default/default/css/sidenav.css

Copy that into your theme CSS directory and customize list floats.
Also if you need to customize list (such as custom classes) you can modify "_renderCategoryMenuItemHtml()" method in this file:
[magento_root]/app/code/community/Codnitive/Sidenav/Block/Navigation.php

Hello!

I would like to know if it is possible to customize the appearance of the sidebar. I just want to reduce the height of each categorie (to make the sidebar more compact) and eventually to change the colors.

Thank you!

Answer: 
Hello,

To customize the appearance of this extension, you should copy below files into same directories of your custom theme:
[magento_root]/skin/frontend/default/default/css/sidenav.css
[magento_root]/skin/frontend/default/default/css/sidenavcollapse.css

"sidenavcollapse.css" will use when collapsible mode is enabled.

Answer: 
Hello Ross,

All menu list generate by "_renderCategoryMenuItemHtml()" inside "Navigation.php" in this path:
[magento_root]/app/code/community/Codnitive/Sidenav/Block/

To remove inline styles you can work around codes in "_renderCategoryMenuItemHtml()" method, however I believe you can change menu inline affects, by using "!important" for styles in external style sheet.

Omid

In the admin area the 'Collapsible' option is set to 'yes'. When on the front end this change doesn't seem to have taken place. The categories look the same as if the option was set to 'no' and all categories still show with some indentation on the sub categories.

Any help is much appreciated.

Kind Regards.

Answer: 
Maybe you need to copy JS files into your custom theme. But I highly recommend upgrade to last released version (1.8.00 at the moment).
In new version many bugs fixed and the extension is intelligent, so you don't need to any extra JS or CSS copy or modification for custom themes.

Answer: 
Hi,

Make sure maximal depth option is set to 0 in this section:
System > Configuration > Catalog > Category Top Navigation

If you are using any third party extension for your top menu, you must check its config and make sure there is not any conflict with this extension.

While the category column appears correctly in all the main pages, the home page places the navigation above the main content.

Hello,
I recently installed your plugin and am now trying to achieve that only the subcategories of the current category are shown. So instead of

cameras
-sony
-panasonic
phones
-samsung
-apple

i only want if I am in cameras

cameras
-sony
-panasonic

and the rest is not displayed.

Is that possible? Thanks a lot in advance!

And I do not just want to hide the inactive level0 elements with css!

Answer: 
This is not possible by this version of the extension.
A new version of this extension developed (Sidebar Navigation Menu Ultra).
In ultra version you can have a custom category for top navigation and another custom category with different sub categories for sidebar navigation. There is not any limit for different sidebar categories, you can have many custom categories for sidebar navigation and use each one for each category, product or CMS page.
Please contact our support team for more info about ultra version.

Answer: 
Layered navigation generates price ranges automatically based on current category available prices.
Also there are some configuration options in "System > Configuration > Catalog > Layered Navigation" to customize price rages steps.

If you need anything more than this, it needs customization.

I have the Codnitive sidenav set to display in the left column. Some of my CMS pages use the 2-col-left template, but the sidenav is not populating. I can tell by using template hints that the navigation.phtml file is being called, but no categories show. If I remove <?php if ($categories = $this->getCategoriesNavMenu()): ?> from the template, the title shows, but no categories. Are there additional xml updates that I need to make for these CMS pages? (The categories are active and set to show in navigation menu.) Thank you!

Answer: 
As it turns out, the problem was with the category structure. The client had created all the categories at the same level as the root category rather than within it. Thanks, anyway! Love the extension!

Two Menus together?

Avatar Image Url:: http://www.magentocommerce.com/images/avatars/uploads/avatar_27236081
Customer avatar
Is it possible to use the main (category) navigation as the left column menu, and then have a custom horizontal menu (where the default menu would have been) showing at the same time?

So horizontal (header) would be: Home / About Us / Contact etc and vertical (left column) would be: Products / Product / Product 2 etc

Thanks.

Answer: 
By this version (Sidebar Navigation Menu Professional) it is not possible, but in Ultra version (Sidebar Navigation Menu Ultra) it is possible.
Ultra version not added to Magento Connect yet, but you can contact to our support or sale team via email to get more info about it and how to purchase.

Answer: 
This functionality works in Collapsible mode.
You must set "Expand by Parent Name" option to "Yes" on extension's configuration settings.

Answer: 
This extension doesn't add collapse and expand feature to layered navigation (shop by) list.
This extension just adds a new vertical category navigation to sidebars.
To adding collapsible functionality to layered navigation, please contact to our support.

Answer: 
Hello,

If you have a custom theme, you must move edited files into your custom theme's design and template directories, which doesn't have problem with update.
If you modified original files, or you don't know what you should do, please contact with out support team for more help.

Hello, *( great extension btw)

I've placed my side_nav on the left but it just won't show up before all. only noticable thing that happens is when i choose

"before customer account navigation",

then it shows up "between shopping" options and "customer acc. nav".

I am guessing it's this part that needs adjustments but I don't know how exactly.

<block type="sidenav/navigation" name="codnitive.home.sidenav.left" as="codnitiveSidenavLeft" before="-">
<action method="setTemplate" modules="codnitivecatalog/sidenav/" options="active,home_active,column,column,before,home_content" conditions="1,1,left_col,both_col,before_all,0" operation="(((0.1.2)+(0.1.3)).4).5">
<template>codnitive/sidenav/navigation.phtml</template>
</action>
</block>

can anyone give any directions?

much obliged,

Rudy

Answer: 
Hello,

Thank you. I'm glad the extension is useful for you.
I guess you must have a custom and non-default block on top of your left sidebar.
For example another Magento extension or custom block created by theme layout.
You should find that block name and put sidebar navigation before that.

Please, don't hesitate to contact to our support for more help.

Best,

About PHP version

Avatar Image Url:: http://www.magentocommerce.com/images/avatars/uploads/avatar_361140
Customer avatar
Hello.
I tried install this extension on my magento store. But, there was an error while installation. Error message is written below.

"CONNECT ERROR: Package community/codnitive_sidenav 1.8.12: requires PHP version >= 5.3.0 and <=6.0.0 current is: 5.2.17"

I think this issue related PHP version. I'm using PHP 5.2.17. Is there any way to install this extension without upgrading PHP version? I think the best way is PHP upgrading. But, I can not do this, because one of bulletin board solution don't support higher version of PHP. Could you please help me?

Hey guys, I'm wondering how can I include the sidebar menu on cart/checkout pages, via templates? Or via admin, if you have that option too?

I've removed <remove name="left"/> code from the checkout.xml file to allow for the left sidebar to be shown, but I don't see how I can manually insert your sidebar in there.

Thanks!

Answer: 
No, don't need to do something more for any third-party theme.
But make sure
1. The extension installed completely.
2. The extension settings are correct.
3. The categories settings are correct.
4. Some files of earlier versions of the extension deleted completely.

Also copying extension's layout, template and skin files into your new theme, maybe help to solve issue.

If still you need help to fix it, please contact to our support.
