My only criticism is that I don’t think you need the comma in the “sections” for the first <txp:section_list /> block. I think you will end up with 2 default links. If you agree and modify the code you can delete this comment (you can do that can’t you?).

You are probably right about not needing the comma, to be honest I never tried to leave it out. But I’m absolutely sure that you won’t end up with two default links.
Dimitri can try both with and without the comma and let us know ;)

And I’m not going to delete your comment :P

Re: [howto] Nested category->sub-category->article menu

Hi.

Sorry for wasting your time. I should have been more detailed, but i appreciate all your help, learnt alot from those new tags.
I have lot of experience in Expressionengine and the switch wasnt easy.

All the help you provided have resulted in something like this
<li class="active"><a href="http://localhost/era/index.php?s=about_us">About Us</a></li>

I have been trying to create something like this
<li><a class="active" href="http://localhost/era/index.php?s=about_us">About Us</a></li>

The active class is in different place.

My idea, i tried to do something like this below but it refuses to work
<li><txp:section name="home" class="<txp:if_section name="home">active</txp:if_section>">Home</txp:section></li>

Otherwise I have to modify my css and use this tag <li<txp:if_section name="home"> class="active"</txp:if_section>><txp:section name="home">Home</txp:section></li>

I am sad really but ,sigh, what can i do :)

That wouldn’t work, no. When using tags in tags, use single quotes:

<li><txp:section name="home" class='<txp:if_section name="home">active</txp:if_section>'>Home</txp:section></li>

Re: [howto] Nested category->sub-category->article menu

How about 4 levels of navigation? I’m looking for a solution to this problem. Is it even possible?

Example:

Nav1
- Subnav1
- Subnav2
- Subnav3
-- Subsubnav1
-- Subsubnav2
--- Subsubsubnav1
- Subnav4
Nav2

Re: [howto] Nested category->sub-category->article menu

Isn’t there a simpler solution? Seems awfully complicated.

Re: [howto] Nested category->sub-category->article menu

No, the solution is pretty simple. It only looks complicated because of the repetition of the same elements for every level. Just do it :)

I used it here advokathamburg.de (navigation in left sidebar) and even I understood the data flow.

Re: [howto] Nested category->sub-category->article menu

Hey Markus … I too need a multi-level category menu, but without articles, just like your implementation on http://advokathamburg.de/. Care to share the code needed for this? Thanks so much!

Ignore me … Sorry, just saw the note on TXP Tips, on what to do when no articles are required :-)

Before I forget this dirty hack:

<!-- tree form -->
<txp:category title="1" />
<txp:category_list parent='<txp:category />' exclude='<txp:category />' children="0" wraptag="ul" break="li">
	<txp:php>echo parse(fetch_form('tree'));</txp:php>
</txp:category_list>

<!-- nested menu -->
<txp:category_list children="0" wraptag="ul" break="li" form="tree" />
