quintagroup.dropdownmenu 1.2.11

Multilevel portal dropdown menu for Plone sites.

Latest Version: 1.2.13

The product allows you to build a responsive multilevel drop-down menu that will provide your visitors with organized and intuitive navigation. On mobile devices your top menu bar transforms into one drop-down. By clicking on the title or a small arrow next to it all-level menu items appear below the title.

This package allows to build dropdown menu through the web with portal_actions. Submenus are built from a tree of nested Category Actions and Actions.

The other strategy used to populate submenus is Plone default NavigationStrategy, the one used in navigation portlet.

This project is successor of qPloneDropDownMenu.

Plone Development by Quintagroup, 2004-2012

Building you dropdown menu with portal_actions

Starting from Plone 3 portal actions introduced CMF Action Category containers, it opened opportunity to build nested actions trees. Though CMF Action Category does not behave as a regular action, it has different set of properties. We introduced convention in quintagroup.dropdownmenu that requires to have a specially named Action for each Actions Category. The id of each such action must be build using the rule:

action_id = prefix + category_id + suffix

where:

category_id:is id of correspondent CMF Action Category
prefix:defined in DropDownMenu configlet, default value ''
suffix:defined in DropDownMenu configlet, default value '_sub'

So, the actions structure can look like:

+ portal_tabs
|- home
|- blog_sub
|-+ blog
| |-- 2009
| |-- 2010

By default the root of dropdown menu is 'portal_tabs' category.
