      Guidelines and Netiquette   03/28/2017

      Posting Problems:   Having problems posting your topic? Read through this: To join, you agree to our terms and conditions and fill out and submit a registration form. An activation email will be sent to your email adress, so you'll need to verify your account. After that the account has to be validated by one of the moderators. This will mean that it can take up to a day to be activated. A couple of things to remember to ensure approval: Don't use an email address in one of those $2 four character .com domains eg. xyds.com. These will be deleted and the domain added to the banned list. Don't use an email address that is within a domain with a bad reputation for spam. A Google search is run on every email address and email domain. Don't sign up with an email address that doesn't exist, doesn't work or requires the sender to answer a quiz before their email can get to you. Put your country and or state and city in the signup form. Blank forms will go to the botton of the "to do" list. And make sure that your email address and your country match, saying you're from Alabama and using a .ru email address is not going to get you activated. After a membership is activated the first few posts will be monitored. Posting spam or unapproved topics described in the agreement results in an immediate ban. The email provider and the IP addresses associated with the account will be banned and all posts will be deleted. These strict measures have been deemed necessary to hinder spam. Sorry for any inconvenience this causes, but it's not liable to change. If, after reading this, you still can't post and don't understand why, contact one of the Moderators listed here.   Topic Guidelines   Including the following information can expedite an accurate response from board members: Must be a Specific Problem or Question related to web design and development Include Code in Question (wrap with   for small blocks of code and for longer blocks   ) Include Code Author Include Extra Notes/Modifications/Attempts Include web link to page/file when possible Content Guidelines   You may not post, upload, link to, or email any Content that contains, promotes, gives instruction about, or provides prohibited Content.

There's no need for calling someone stupid if they ask an 'easy' question. Keep your avatars and signatures absolutely child friendly. We have a younger audience on this forum. Keep your language appropriate for the same reason above. Do not PM moderators for help on the forum. Post on the topic, or create a new one.   Spam:   Recently, as you have all without doubt noticed, we have had lots of spam and advertisement on the forum. Therefore, we'd like to alert you as to what to do when you have found any of the aforementioned annoying messages: it. Immediately. Give a clear reason, please, if the advertising is not evident. DO NOT POST! Report, let the post stay as is, and we will get to it, meanwhile if you continue to post as normal in the other threads, it won't be on the top so long. Refrain from PMing the member. This won't help at all, as they are most likely spambots anyway. Thank you.       Images in signatures:   After thinking of users on dial-up, we have decided to enforce the following rules regarding signatures. Please pay heed to them. Respecting these rules is respecting the members on this forum with dial-up. Signature rules: No animated images AT ALL. No matter the amount of animation. Maximum image widthxheight: 300x150 Maximum image (file) size: 15kb Use calm colors. Do not use highly contrasting images in your signature, as this can get really annoying when seeing several posts from one member in the same thread. The same prohibited content goes for images as for posts. Lastly, use common sense. No lengthy signatures please. Save us some scrolling. Thank you.       Links in signatures:   Please understand that w3schools.com only exists because of voluntary work and is barely supported by the advertising littered throughout the tutorials and the forum. So, please, stop advertising other sites. DO not post links that drive traffic away from the w3schools domain - especially to a site that offers similar if not identical information. Please help support the site by keeping individuals on it. Thank you. Here are some guidelines as to what you can put in your signature: w3schools links --> allowed w3.org links --> allowed browser links --> allowed html editor links --> allowed personal sites --> allowed tutorial sites competing with w3schools --> NOT allowed sites completely irrelevant to webprogramming and this forum --> NOT allowed   Thanks for understanding, and for taking the time to read this. ~W3Schools Modstaff~

OpenCart webshop menu coding (recoding menu for design)

Recommended Posts

Hello W3Schools! Its been a while :)

 

I am trying to help a friend setting up he's webshop. It is already online but trying to make it look more nice according to webdesign template :) - this is hes website shop (www.thai-online.dk)

 

i have already changed A LOT on this design, now i mostly need the menu...

 

as you see the menu navigation has a lot of categories, and he told me that he wanted to add a lot more in the future if this shop could run online, so i am trying to figure out a solution for this.

 

I already like the design myself, except the menu, so i have come to a solution that i am working on and hopefully you can help me out, work with me.

 

As you see i currently have added 13 Categories, now my idea is to code some PHP into the menu on OpenCart so that if the menu design is ABOVE "1100px" in width AND has more than 7-8 categories on the menu, it will only show the 7-8 categories and at the end of it all show a little plus sign "+", when clicked on the plus sign a little side-menu will appear out from that little plus sign.

 

The reason for using the 1100px width thing is to know if its on a pc orr on a mobile (if you know a better way please tell me, this is just to show you what i want)

 

i know for sure the "plus sign" already has been made somewhere, but how to actually do it?

 

We are using opencart version 2.0.1.2 or something like that... this is the code i found on the .tbl file:

            <?php foreach ($categories as $category) { ?>
            
            <?php if ($category['children']) { ?><li class="dropdown"><a href="<?php echo $category['href']; ?>" class="dropdown-toggle" data-toggle="dropdown"><span><?php echo $category['name']; ?></span>  <img width="8" height="8" class="menu-close" src="catalog/view/theme/atr374opc2101/image/menu_close.gif" /><img width="8" height="8" class="menu-open" src="catalog/view/theme/atr374opc2101/image/menu_open.gif" /></a>
          <div class="dropdown-menu">
          <div class="dropdown-inner">
            <?php foreach (array_chunk($category['children'], ceil(count($category['children']) / $category['column'])) as $children) { ?>
            <ul class="list-unstyled">
            <?php foreach ($children as $child) { ?><!--
            --><li><a href="<?php echo $child['href']; ?>"><?php echo $child['name']; ?></a></li><!--
            --><?php } ?>
            </ul>
            <?php } ?>
          </div>
          <a href="<?php echo $category['href']; ?>" class="see-all"><span><?php echo $text_all; ?> <?php echo $category['name']; ?></span></a></div>
        </li><?php } else { ?><!--
        --><li><a href="<?php echo $category['href']; ?>"><span><?php echo $category['name']; ?></span></a></li><?php } ?>
            
            <?php } ?>

On another note, we are also using BootStrap (latest version) to make the design responsive. And the reason why i use the 1100px width, like i said before is because of knowing if the screen is that wide AND to tell if i should be adding the category addon... if the screen however is less than 1100px (or so...), the menu should be normal.

 

Reason why i do this is because i already like the responsive design, i only need to edit the PC-Screen design a little bit so the menu can fit without problems.

 

Hope you all can help out one way or another, still struggling with this little thing :)

 

Thanks in advance and again, its been a while, so..... HELLO ;):P

There are plenty of responsive menus you can look at which might help. Otherwise, maybe treat the plus sign as just another category in the menu.

i know this, but the problem is that we have "bought" a new design, and the design was not designed to handle stuff like this (that i am aware off). What other menus are you talking about? If you have some ideas that could help or a guideline that would be great :)

 

Thanks for the answer tho :P

If there was a post there that got deleted before I replied, I didn't see it. Regardless, there's no reason to lob insults, and there's no reason to call people names. If you feel different please feel free to follow up via PM.

Don't worry about it, its what everyone has got use to from moderators of this forum, in that left hand does not know what right hand is doing, and blame someone else when it goes wrong.

There's not an excuse for flaming the forum. If you see a problematic post, report it.

 

Since this thread has gone off the rails, I'll close it.
