Trying to create menu with more than one level

Permalink
I am brand new to concrete5. I installed it and am getting familiar with all the blocks I think I will need. So far, I love concrete5!! It seems to be just what I have been looking for.

My question is that I am trying to create a navbar using auto-nav and I have set the options to display all sub-pages. When I preview the nav, it looks good, but then when I actually test it, all the pages and sub-pages are in one unordered list. I was hoping the second level pages would be in a nested unordered list so I could style them for drop down menus.

Is there any way to do this?

I believe you will need to create a custom template for the autonav block. The base template is located under concrete5/blocks/autonav/templates/header_menu.php. Any modifications should be placed with a new name under blocks/autonav/templates.

I've never actually found the need to do multilevel menus in one list, so there may be an easier way that I'm not aware of.

Thanks. I obviously have alot to learn still. I was looking in google earlier and found an article about a custom template for creating breadcrumbs so it sounds like custom templates are pretty powerful. I'll check out the file you mentioned and see if I can figure it out. Thanks again.

Sub-pages are nested unordered lists under their parent list items in auto-nav blocks. Look at the source of an auto-nav and you'll see it. If it's not displaying that way, it could be your stylesheets messing with it.

Just set your custom styles to use the classes the auto-nav assigns to the list items.

afaik the lists are not enough defined to do that - I tried it and found just the active list to have a class named "nav-selected" many other entries do have a (IMHO very bad) class=' '

I might be wrong, c5 still confuses me in many ways.

I had the same issue.

The autonav block had the Custom Template set to Header Menu (which looks like it creates a single level list). Changing the Custom Template to None gave me nested lists.
