Hi,

I'd like to add a third level to my menu(1). The next level should appear under the active link of the superior.

It works perfectly with the second, but my Problem is, that the third level does not appear under the active link of the second. I have no idea how to get it work. I think is it quite easy, can anybody help?

Here is the code from my navigation.ss:

<ul>
<% control Menu(1) %>
<% if Children %>
            <li class="$LinkingMode"><a href="$Link" title="ADV: $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode"><span>$MenuTitle</span></a>
<% else %>
            <li><a href="$Link" title="ADV: $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode"><span>$MenuTitle</span></a>
<% end_if %>   
<% if LinkOrSection = section %>
<% if Children %>
            <ul class="sub">
               <% control Children %>
               
               
               <li><a href="$Link" title="ADV: $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode">$MenuTitle</a></li>
               
               
               <% end_control %>
            </ul>
<% end_if %>
<% end_if %>
            </li>
<% end_control %>
         </ul>

I think it would be this... just add an additional nested

if Children

and

control Children

block.

<ul>
<% control Menu(1) %>
   <% if Children %>
      <li class="$LinkingMode"><a href="$Link" title="ADV: $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode"><span>$MenuTitle</span></a>
   <% else %>
      <li><a href="$Link" title="ADV: $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode"><span>$MenuTitle</span></a>
   <% end_if %>
   <% if LinkOrSection = section %>
   <% if Children %>
      <ul class="sub">
      <% control Children %>
         <li><a href="$Link" title="ADV: $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode">$MenuTitle</a></li>          
         <% if Children %>
         <ul class="subsub">
         <% control Children %>
            <li><a href="$Link" title="ADV: $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode">$MenuTitle</a></li>
         <% end_control %>
         </ul><!--.subsub-->
         <% end_if %>
      <% end_control %>
      </ul><!--.sub-->
   <% end_if %><!--if Children-->
   <% end_if %><!--if LinkOrSection-->
      </li><!-- end top level menu item-->
<% end_control %>
</ul>

That works perfectly. I tried it by myself before with another children tag, but it didn't work.

Thank you very much!

Hey,

thanks for your help again. I have another question to the third level in my menu: How does it work that the items from the third level are hidden until the user clicks on the superior item in the second?

My problem is that there is a long list under the first item of the second level. It would be easier for the user if the third level is not shown until they are on a site of the second one.

Here is a little example of my problem:

TOYS
- Boys
--Good
--- Monstertrucks <<< How can I hide these items until the user is on the "Good"-site?
--- PowerRangers <<<
--- Baseball <<<
--Bad
- Girls
- Both

The code I used for my third level is in the second post.

Thank you very much for a little help!

Code from User "artlung":

<ul>
<% control Menu(1) %>
<% if Children %>
<li class="$LinkingMode"><a href="$Link" title="ADV: $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode"><span>$MenuTitle</span></a>
<% else %>
<li><a href="$Link" title="ADV: $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode"><span>$MenuTitle</span></a>
<% end_if %>
<% if LinkOrSection = section %>
<% if Children %>
<ul class="sub">
<% control Children %>
<li><a href="$Link" title="ADV: $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode">$MenuTitle</a></li>
<% if Children %>
<ul class="subsub">
<% control Children %> <!-- THIS IS THIRD LEVEL, RIGHT? -->
<li><a href="$Link" title="ADV: $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode">$MenuTitle</a></li>
<% end_control %> <!-- THIS IS END OF THIRD LEVEL, RIGHT? -->
</ul><!--.subsub-->
<% end_if %>
<% end_control %>
</ul><!--.sub-->
<% end_if %><!--if Children-->
<% end_if %><!--if LinkOrSection-->
</li><!-- end top level menu item-->
<% end_control %>
</ul>

When you mean, to hide the THIRD level in your menu, then just delete the THIRD level code from the menu code, or is that wrong?

<ul>
<% control Menu(1) %>
<% if Children %>
<li class="$LinkingMode"><a href="$Link" title="ADV: $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode"><span>$MenuTitle</span></a>
<% else %>
<li><a href="$Link" title="ADV: $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode"><span>$MenuTitle</span></a>
<% end_if %>
<% if LinkOrSection = section %>
<% if Children %>
<ul class="sub">
<% control Children %>
<li><a href="$Link" title="ADV: $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode">$MenuTitle</a></li>
<!-- HERE WAS THE CHILDREN CONTROL OF THE CHILDREN CONTROL -->
<% end_control %>
</ul><!--.sub-->
<% end_if %><!--if Children-->
<% end_if %><!--if LinkOrSection-->
</li><!-- end top level menu item-->
<% end_control %>
</ul>

this is a typical "just show level1 and level2" navigation from one of my homepages..

   <ul id="tabmenue">
      <% control Menu(1) %>
         <li><a href="$Link" class="$LinkingMode">$MenuTitle</a></li>
         <% if LinkingMode != link %>
         <% if Children %>
            <ul>
               <% control Children %>
                  <li><a href="$Link" class="$LinkingMode-2">$MenuTitle</a></li>
               <% end_control %>
            </ul>
         <% end_if %>
         <% end_if %>
      <% end_control %>
   </ul>

nothing special.. if your problem is another problem, then post here again :S^^

So the way I do this is this:

<a href="<a class="subButton" href="$Link" title="Go to the &quot;{$Title}&quot; page" target="_self">">$MenuTitle</a> <% if Children %><a id="id-$ID-nav" href="javascript:;" class="rollover" title="Expand or close this submenu">&gt;</a><% end_if %>
<% if Children %>

   <div id="id-$ID-navsub" class="subnav"

   <% if LinkOrSection != section %>

      style="display: none;"

   <% end_if %>

   >

      <ul>

         <% control Children %>

            <!--li class="$LinkingMode"--><!--$ID $Parent.ID-->

            <li><a class="subButton" href="$Link" title="Go to the &quot;{$Title}&quot; page" target="_self">$MenuTitle</a></li>

      <% end_control %>

      </ul>

</div>

<% end_if %>

Then, because I use jQuery, I have this in my JavaScript:

jQuery(".rollover").click(function(){
   var parent_id = jQuery(this).attr('id'); // id-4-nav
   var child_id = "#" + parent_id + 'sub'; // id-4-navsub
   jQuery(child_id).slideToggle("normal");
   jQuery(this).toggleClass("active"); return false;
})
