auto-nav not showing children
My auto-nav menu bar will not show my sub-pages.
I've tried every possible combination of configuration in the properties of auto-nav.
yes my page gives guests permission to view.
And in the site map the page is under another page.
It sounds like you might need a better understanding of C5 permissions than the auto-nav block because you mention a "Guest" setting as though that has something to do with you being able to see your auto-nav settings take affect.
Permissions aside, what would the settings be in the auto-nav properties to show sub-pages in a drop-down fashion?
A dropdown needs to be templated to look/feel a part of the site, so C5 breaks the auto-nav functionality from the design. Some themes come with the ability to handle this interaction (see:http://www.concrete5.org/marketplace/themes/bootstrap/... ). The first addon (that can be used inside a theme of your choosing) to handle the dropdown menu in C5 was superfish. It is good but there are much more now.
I've used superfish in Drupal and it worked very well.
I just thought that Concrete5 auto-nav could do this native.
Thank you much, I'll stop pulling my hair out...hahaha
It's not so much that the core autonav doesn't do it as much as it doesn't try to do it and allows addons and themes to provide it how they see best. There are a ton of addons in the marketplace and it you look at the view.php of autonav
Both contain things that would at most require you to create a "Custom Template" which is just a copy of that view.php I talked about above with maybe a couple classes added.
If you need some info on creating custom templates let me know as they are a big part of working with blocks in concrete5.
Should they? It sounds more like that would exclude them.
I cheated by taking away padding from the nav-bar and pulling it more to the right. It fits well now, but just for knowledge purposes I'd like to know how to do this. The post above yours sounds interesting but I'm a novice when it comes to code.
You say you were messing with the css... is it possible the sub-pages are actually being displayed but they're off-screen or their z-index is below other elements? Have a look at your View Source and see if the sub-pages are actually in the code somewhere.
Just a thought.
