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!)

Works perfectly with 1.9.1.0 Extension works out of the box with Magento CE 1.9.1.0 June 19, 2015
No function under 1.9.1.0 No function of this extension under 1.9.1.0 with rwd theme. June 11, 2015
Perfect The module works perfect. Easy to change the CSS. One extra function would be fine to insert in the plugin. That you can choose to expand all categories only for the category pages or for the category pages and the hompage Sometimes you want to show all the categories + subcategories on the homepage but on the category page only the subcategories of that category. Regards, October 7, 2014
Globaly Usefull Very usefull, but many problems with the CSS modifications.. February 25, 2014
Simple And Nice Great plugin works nicely. This is what I expected. Easy to understand coding... Many thanks January 31, 2014
Excellent Stuff! Works in 1.8.0 too. Rico_Neitzel's VerNav is so useful. Used in many sites, very easy to customize, works in 1.8.0 too. December 31, 2013
Saved my life! One of my clients needed a vertical menu with features that I thought would be next to impossible for me to code in time, this extension saved me! Installs and works flawlessly, with lots of config and CSS customization options. Thank you! October 17, 2013
blanc page in category IInstalled but i get a blanc page in category. nothing to see there... what to do? I refreshed, logged in and out several times, also unintalled and re-installed again... 1.7.2 btw.. September 27, 2013
Clean Navigation This is exactly what I have been looking for for a long time. This navigation is clean and simple. It also includes active/inactive categories and colors. This is one thing that a lot of navigation's lack which creates bad UX. One great feature is that is allows you to set the default of your navigation to parent, child, etc. Therefore, when needing a site that required only subcats of the parent, it allowed me to choose it! The use of the classes attached to the navigation make it versatile as well. A+ ! I am running the latest magento to date. September 17, 2013
Best left navigation extension I`ve been looking over the internet entire weeks for some code to do the same like this extension but didnt found. Now i am the most happy that i found this extension. Good Job September 16, 2013

Hi i have installed the Module again after upgrading our store to 1.8 and now try to find out why <?php echo $this->__('Category Navigation:') ?> in left.phtml is not outputting anymore anything useful anymore.
Does anyone have some insights to that.
Thanks in advance.

I want to put a menu on a single page in my website without interfering the main navigation.

for example i have the main navigation across the top, I've made a page called computer corner and want to put a menu with separate categories on this page separate to the main navigation.

I've had a look around, refreshed, played, cached, googled. I can't seem to identify any reason why this extension isn't showing in the back end (under System - Configuration - Catalog - Catalog) or method to try and make it appear.. Hugely appreciative for any solutions/suggestions - it's just not there!
