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!)

Change Log

  • v0.4.2: Added Portuguese Locale (Thanks Raúl Fishman)
  • v0.4.1: Added Feature Disable on StoreView Base
  • v0.4.0: Added Feature Expand on Top Level Request: If a product is requested without categories in the URL vert nav can figure out the first assigned category and expands the category tree.
  • v0.2.8: Enable/Disable TopNav in Admin-Config - now without changing XML-Files. Define which Levels should be shown on storefront.
  • v0.2.3: You can now setup whether VertNav should show EVERYTHING (nice for jQuery) or just a few levels in the category tree.
  • v0.2.1: New CSS Classes: levelN-active, levelN-inactive oder levelN-parent (where N is 0, 1, 2...)
  • v0.1.9: Category names with accents are possible now. Thanks to Netzarbeiter Vinai Kopp for Coding!

Category sidebar for CMS pages - that has been redirected from category

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

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.

I intalled the module, but cannot see any navigation bar at the main page of my store... Have refreshed the cache and indexes several times, but no navigation menu shows up. Have also tried with different templates.

Asked by: Magentroid

can't see the configuration page

hi, i can't find the configuration page, is it a known problem with your extension? is there any workaround for this problem? best regards Mattia
Asked by: paox_m

Backend No-show

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!

Mobile

How do I make the menu not show on mobile version? I can do it with jQuery, but was wondering if there was a better way.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No function under 1.9.1.0 No function of this extension under 1.9.1.0 with rwd theme.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
