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!)

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
Great extension! Great work on this extension! It works perfectly. A clean and simpel way to create SEO menu's! July 17, 2013
Great work! I have been looking for a simple menu like this for a long time. Works perfect and does exactly what you promise. Thanks! June 26, 2013
Great Extension Thanks for this great extension. Works as described and easy to install/configure. But I have one problem: One of my customers would like to have landing pages for 2nd level categories and they are displayed in the vert-navi and open the right CMS-Page, but they are not set as "active" in the vertical navigation. Is there any solution to achieve this? May 10, 2013

You need to use Magento Connect Manager from your store. It's under System > Magento Connect > Magento Connect Manager.

Answer: 
You can either paste the key in your magento connect field (Backend).

Or if you need the pure download package go to http://freegento.com/ddl-magento-extension.php and paste the link there.

We have few categories and subcategories, which we are redirecting to CMS pages. I have installed your extension and seeing the category box with root categories only. We want to see, if any of the categories or sub categories(Redirect to CMS) selected, it will display(as open) subcategories for that root category like in your example screen shot. Is it possible to do it with your extension? or you are planning on that?

Thank you

Answer: 
If you want to keep your Navigation path, while linking to cms pages, the best way I can think of is, use a static blocks instead.

You can link directly to a static block via your category manager.

set custom root level

Avatar Image Url:: http://www.magentocommerce.com/images/avatars/uploads/avatar_1272
Customer avatar
Hi,

is it somehow possible to set a custom root level for search?

My Main Root Level is Shop & Info.
But when I' m on the Search Result Page I woul rather have the subcategories of "Shop" listed.

This might be also interesting for pages that are not included in the navigation tree at all.

E.G. If I want the subcategories of Info shown on the order success page.

Best Regards
Nico

Why cant i see the connect manger in the system drop down. I see there is an extension download for the connect manager. But here again you need to use the key. Where do you load the key. Why is this so confusing or is it so simple that i am missing something.
