Overview

Vertical Navigation with CSS Classes

With this extension you're able to design you own vertical category navigation with subcategories and product count display. Each element has a fine css'ing so you can address each element or group exactly including "first" and "last" element per group and "previos", "active" and "next" child.

By default the module removes the top.navigation via XML-Update and places the vertical nav in "left" structural block.

Several options can be controlled in your AdminPanel under system -> configuration -> catalog as per StoreView:

  • Hide Vertical Navigation (yes/no)
  • Hide Top Navigation (yes/no)
  • Display Product Count (yes/no)
  • Expand on Top Level (yes/no)
  • Expand all categories (yes/no
  • Expand all max depth (number)
  • Root Categories (Store base, current Category, Same Level as current Category, Category Level 2, Category Level 3)
  • Fallback to store base (yes/no)

You should modify the vertnav.css-file in your skin folder to fit your needs. (Please note: do not change the base/default skin file! The delivered CSS file is for showcase purposes only!)

Rico, thank you so much for sharing this extension. It works great for me. Within 20 minutes I was able to switch it to my right sidebar and make basic css tweaks to integrate it into my site. I appreciate that you kept the xml and css simple and easy to update!! September 11, 2012
works great on magento 1.6. Thank you very much August 31, 2012
extension works perfectly on the magento version 1.7, no errors so far but I would like to modify the gray background and the size of the title thanks. August 29, 2012
Hello Rico, first i wanna thank you for this great Extesion, works for me also fine with MAGENTO 1.7... I have only the problem, that on the starting-page (home) of my Magento-Store the last "<li>" of the VertNav gets always an "active" and "open" in its class, although this category is not selected. Means, that when i go to the store, last category is automatically expanded... Is this a known Problem?... I dont know if this is a problem of the Extension or of Magento itself? Maybe you can give me a little idea, how i can fix this?.... best regards W August 16, 2012
my client was having a problem with your extension displaying the wrong number of products per category. It was displaying disabled products too. I fixed this by changing this in Navigation.php [code] $productCount = ''; if ($this->displayProductCount()) { $n = Mage::getModel('catalog/layer')->setCurrentCategory($category->getID())->getProductCollection()->getSize(); $productCount = '<span class="product-count"> (' . $n . ')</span>'; } [/code] to this [code] $productCount = ''; if ($this->displayProductCount()) { $n = Mage::getModel('catalog/layer')->setCurrentCategory($category->getID())->getProductCollection()->getSize(); $productCount = '<span class="product-count"> (' . $n . ')</span>'; }[/code] May 2, 2012
Worked like a charm! April 13, 2012
