I reckon there could. I’ll look into it.

Try this one and use attribute active_articles_only="1". Let me know if it works and I’ll release & document version 0.6 properly.

Re: adi_menu – section hierarchy, section menu and breadcrumb trail

Time to consolidate. Version 0.6 officially released. This includes:

  • new adi_menu attributes for separate sub-menus: ‘include_children’, ‘include_current’ & ‘active_parent’
  • new adi_menu attribute to help with sIFR: ‘list_span’
  • article capability added (for beta testing) with new attributes ‘articles’, ‘article_attr’, ‘article_include’, ‘article_exclude’, ‘active_articles_only’

Version control went out the window a bit with this one, so download a fresh copy if yours is missing any of the above.

With regards to articles capability, have a look at the plugin help and have a play. I’ve got some improvements in mind but you’re welcome to try it in advance.

Re: adi_menu – section hierarchy, section menu and breadcrumb trail

Does anyone know what happened to this plugin? Over the past week I’ve tried repeatedly to reach the download site and the information url at greatoceanmedia.com.au but apparently the server is kaput. The site never loads in any of my browsers and no intercept page loads either. Just “contacting ….” on and on and on without results.

I sure would love to get ahold of this plugin. Anyone have a suggestion? Or be willing to send it to me?

Thanks for any help!

Re: adi_menu – section hierarchy, section menu and breadcrumb trail

Thank you, Keith!

Must be some kind of local DNS issue or perhaps my provider is on his ban list. Still can’t reach that site. But I thank you greatly for posting the plugin code.

Peace, — Bob

Does anyone know what happened to this plugin?

Apologies for the delay in replying but I’m in a different continent at the moment.

bg: Nothing’s happened, it’s still live. I have converted my site to TXP recently (& moved web hosts) and the download links are different but there’re redirects in place to automatically reroute you to the right place (I’ve just confirmed that it still works for me).

keith: Thanks for helping out – much appreciated.

Re: adi_menu – section hierarchy, section menu and breadcrumb trail

Hi Adi, a lot of great work here. I have a big project coming up and this might help out significantly. Just one question before I go through the motions. I think it will from what I’ve read, but just want to make sure.

The project I’ll be doing may have up to 3 levels (but probably just 2) in the hierarchy. So far so good. However, we won’t be wanting drop-down or pop-out style behavior for the secondary menu; the menus will be contextual like you’ve developed for so far, but the display will be more classic, like this:

  • a main, horizontal bar at top,
  • a secondary menu at right or left column

As folks have described, the desired behavior will be so that when a main menu item is clicked, the secondary menu for that parent only will display in the column with the default secondary section visually active for usability reasons (the parent section in main list remaining active as well). As you click other secondary options, the visual focus (cue) changes, respectively.

This behavior might change at the tertiary level if a third level of sections in needed. In this case, if a secondary section item is clicked, it may have a slide-down tertiary list directly underneath like nested lists (in the same column). These tertiary lists would show and disappear as a user clicked through the secondary menu items, and the tertiary lists would have active states contextual with the parent and grandparent sections.

See what I mean? Can I create that behavior and positioning with this plugin? If so, this plugin probably goes into my Top Ten list for plugin category “Essential Baseline Plugins for a Client Project”. :)

(I still need to make those wiki style tweaks, I know.)

Yes … No … er, not sure. Second level sub-menus should be OK but not sure about 3rd level. I’d be happy to accommodate your requirements (if I can) but let’s take this offline for the moment so I can get my head around it. I’ll contact you via forum email.

Re: adi_menu – section hierarchy, section menu and breadcrumb trail

Hi Adi,

Not wanting to cause you any unnecessary work, and after thinking about this a bit more, I think if the site turns out to be only two levels, then I can simply use the sections_list tag for the main and secondary navigation lists and create contextual cues between them by using one-to-one section-page relationships, body selectors, and CSS (a little heavier in the CSS but doable). Where things might change is if a tertiary level needs added in context of the secondary nav list items, but I’m not sure if that will be needed yet. The project is still in the content audit/site map phase so I’ll know more in the very near future.

Re: adi_menu – section hierarchy, section menu and breadcrumb trail

By the way, I remembered a perfect example of what I’m talking about (one of my favorite high-profile sites for good usability examples, in fact): General Electric. The home page is simply the main navigation (this will be the same in my project). Now click Our Company and note the left column menu (secondary nav) that appears and is contextual to the main navigation items (there is also the dropdown selections when hovering the main item, but that’s not needed in my case). Now to see what I was talking about with the third-level navigation, click on the Leadership link in the secondary nav. You’ll see the third level options appear immediately under the secondary menu item; not as a hover, but as a stable navigation list, that’s important. That’s pretty solid usability right there, and if a plugin could match that it would be golden in my book. However, I’m pretty sure, at least in my case, I don’t need the third level to be sections; that could just be an article list at that point, so it’s possible I could manage all of this with core txp tags. I’ll have to give it a whirl.

Also, just food for thought, there’s something else there that would be a great addition to your plugin. Hover on the innovation link in the main menu and note the use of graphics as link options. When I was working here, I designed the same concept for their produits link in the main menu. It’s a sharp touch for a dropdown menu and there’s a lot you can do with it. I like how GE transitions from there to an innovations slide viewer.

Re: adi_menu – section hierarchy, section menu and breadcrumb trail

Destry…

Using Textpattern v4.0.7, I’m working on a project that sounds identical to the one you’re doing. It’s not ready to show yet but the navigation is complete, so I know it works. And the second and third level menus are easily accomplished with core txp tags (can you say “txp:article_custom”?) and css.

My main nav is a top-of-page horizontal list. Each of these items is a Section. When you hover over any of these main items, a dropdown appears below that item. Each of the dropdown items is an Article title, but could just as easily be a sub-section. Clicking a title produces the page with that article.

The right column of each page holds a list of other articles, the content of which depends on what page you’re viewing at the moment. On the home page there’s a second-level sub-menu of “important” articles in the right column. On all other pages the right column contains a second-level menu for navigation within that section. A few of these contain a third-level sub-menu pointing to third-level articles.

Can’t show it to you yet, but once the client approves the product I’ll post a link. When I have more time I’ll post some of the code so you can see what I’m doing.

Peace, — Bob
