I think everyone has encountered the situation at some point or other where their navbar has got very cluttered and they are faced with either adding yet another navbar, or adding some dropdown menus to group some items.

This tutorial explains how to create an additional drop down menu in your navbar.

Firstly, locate in your navbar template the first instace of<if condition="$show['popups']">and add after it<td id="custommenu" class="vbmenu_control">
<a href="#">Custom Menu</a>
<script type="text/javascript">
vbmenu_register("custommenu");
</script>
</td>Replace Custom Menu with the title for this menu which you want displayed on your navbar and custommenu with the name that you want to give your link. Note that spaces are not to be used as this will break the connection with the actual menu.

Next, in your navbar template find<!-- NAVBAR POPUP MENUS -->and add after it
<div class="vbmenu_popup" id="custommenu_menu" style="display:none">
<table cellpadding="4" cellspacing="1" border="0">
<tr>
<td class="thead">Custom Menu</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="vbmenu_option" title="nohilite">
content row
</td>
</tr>
</table>
</div>Again replace custommenu with the name given to your link. Make sure that you leave the _menu after it as this identifies it as the menu part of the link. Also replace Custom Menu again with the title that you have used for your link.

The content row should be replaced with the actual menu item that you want to have in your new drop down menu.

Repeat the code
<tr>
<td class="vbmenu_option" title="nohilite">
content row
</td>
</tr>as required to add additional links onto your menu.

If you wish to break your menu into sections like the quicklinks use then add
<tr>
<td class="thead">Custom Menu</td>
</tr>everywhere that you wish to add a new header.

The content added should be in the normal html format for links.



If you wish to add more than one menu, repeat the process for each one, ensuring that you use a different name for each menu otherwise they will not function correctly.


I hope you find this useful.

can you post the code that you are using?

So wait, what exactly do I put in the content area? Like if I wanted a link, I'd put:

<a href="blah"></a>

And thats it?

See, I did all that I think and it doesn't even show up on the bar.

you would put<a href="URL">title</a>

Ah yes, thats what I meant :p.

Okay, I got that, but it still isn't showing up on the navbar. Any ideas as to how I am messing up?

And thanks for your time, I am not a technical guy..

I can see a link below the bar, but when I click it it just jumps to the top

You had put your first section in the wrong place. There are two instances of<if condition="$show[popups]">and you have placed it after the second one, not the first one.

I see where I messed up :). Thank you sooo much!

And if I wanted to add other links, I just have to do that simple short code or do I have to go through all that again? Cuz that isn't working either, but I hope Ill figure it out.

peterska2
30 Jul 2006, 18:13
The last two stages in the tutorial post explain how to add additional links. If you need any help with it, just ask.

quick question, i have this and it works great.I currently have the vbradio in my navbar and it is an open in a new window code.Is there a way to have a code in the drop down that opens in a new window?

peterska2
01 Aug 2006, 14:28
Yes, when add the link as normal for one that will open in an external window.

eg

<a href="www.mysite.com/mypage.php" target="_blank">Visit My Page</a>

Hmm, a link appeared up there but not the ability to have a dropdown menu. Here is the code:

<script type="text/javascript">

ht = document.getElementsByTagName("html");
ht[0].style.filter = "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.BasicImage(grayscale=1)";
if (confirm('$vbphrase[sure_you_want_to_log_out]'))
{
return true;
}
else
{
ht[0].style.filter = "";
return false;
}
}
//-->

Close, just one little error in there.

Find <td id="custommenu" class="vbmenu_control"> and replace with<td id="apparate" class="vbmenu_control">

You are a genius! Worked out perfect.

Now, I have a question. Is it possible, well I know it is but do you know, how to make a dropdown menu viewable by only one usergroup? Like admins have their menu with links to ACP, advanced members have their menu, etc.

peterska2
15 Oct 2006, 18:31
Use <if condition="is_member_of($user, x)">
First set of code for the link
</if>for one user group


Or use
<if condition="is_member_of($user, x, y, z)">
First set of code for the link
</if>for multipleuser groups

In both instances replace the letters with the usergroup(s) you wish to be able to see the link.

If you want it shown to all members use<if condition="$show[member]">or if you only want it shown to guests, use<if condition="$show[guest]">

In the same way as the first two examples, if you want a link to be shown to everyone except a certain usergroup, then use the same method as the first two examples, just replacing is_member_ofwith!is_member_ofnote the ! which works as a not.

this was very very useful for me, thanks. Had problems though in-which my theme didn't have the actual navbar button in the navbar template. But I was able to figure it all out :)

This worked like a charm.....I tried figuring it out myself then gave up and came over here and did a search.

Thanks for the help

What if I just want a menu to show up in one particular forum?

<if condition="$show[('$forumid ==7')]">

Like that or no?

Ultimately, when I try to make it a dropdown menu, it messes up on me. Instead of just my menu coming up, it makes my forum come up. It's annoying, how do I fix that?

peterska2

what code are you using? Please post your code in tags and if possible provide a link to somewhere where this is happening.

can you share how you did that?

That would be done by just adding a link to each of your forums into a dropdown created using the method shown in post #1

Exactly, I just used an html editor to create all the tables and then manually added all the forums to it.

I would like to add another navbar on top of the one that I already have, and use the dropdown menus like that. Is this possible to do? I already have an extra navbar with links to various parts of my website, but none of them have dropdown menus.

HPIA
06 Dec 2006, 05:53
One thing I don't understand is why you set it to "nohilite". Why not have it highlighted? The quick links dropdown menu has it on..It looks messy with some highlightable and others not, right?

peterska2
06 Dec 2006, 11:05
I don't know why I did that. Must have been linked to a style I was working on at the time. Just might out that bit and it will work like the Quick Links with highlighting.

Thank you works perfectly.

Just one question. Where would I put the code to make the custom menu show up to the right of the quick links. Inbetween the quick links and the log out area. Would I jsut move the first piece of code?

peterska2
12 Jan 2007, 03:00
Yes, just move the first piece to the place you want it to show.

Hello!

Great tutorial, thank you! I get this to work perfectly on my non modded vbulletin installation @ www.sportti.com/foorumi , but I can't get it to work at my customized site @ www.pokerimestari.com

That's not your tutorials fault, that's my retarded navbar templates fault. But if you have the time to look at my navbar code, I would be more than happy!

Great tutorial. Worked on the first try on the Default Style. Although, it only shows a dead link and no drop down on a custom style.

Any suggestions?

Custom style navbar code with a sample of your mod inserted:
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
function log_out()
{
ht = document.getElementsByTagName("html");
ht[0].style.filter = "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.BasicImage(grayscale=1)";
if (confirm('$vbphrase[sure_you_want_to_log_out]'))
{
return true;
}
else
{
ht[0].style.filter = "";
return false;
}
}
//-->
</script>

Kerry ann, would it be possible to get some support still on this? :(
Your code is pretty extensive and I cannot see any evidence of the additional code for this. Can you snippet it or highlight in red the added code please.

You are quite right :o

Fixed it now though.

Thanks for this.

I tried it but is there any way to make the vbmenu show when the mouse hovers over the image instead of showing the vbmenu arrow, just like when you click on one of the dropdown menus and hover over another, it shows the dropdown.

I would like to make my icons vbmenu dropdowns - www.FloporFold.com

Thanks very much :)

Great tutorial!

I've tried to modify it to be used with a image button in stead of a text link, but I just cant get it right. Could you please help me in the right direction.

Thanks.

Wonderful tute!

Is there a way to move the drop down box?

www.hotcouponworld.com

The coupon resource link has the sub-menu way to the left and I would like to center it.

Anyone know the solution for my post on the 14th (3 posts up)?

I think Sjakie is looking to do something similar with using images.

Thanks

Excelent tutorial! (and rated as such)

I'm running into an issue where the links aren't showing like the other drop downs that come with the forum. Rather it's showing like the formatting is wrong, as shown in the picture here:

http://www.mj-garage.com/pics/newposts.jpg

I want the links under the "New Posts" label and not to the right of it. I also want the colors to match the other drop down menus....but I need to fix the first issue first...:(

here is my code:

<<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
function log_out()
{
ht = document.getElementsByTagName("html");
ht[0].style.filter = "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.BasicImage(grayscale=1)";
if (confirm('$vbphrase[sure_you_want_to_log_out]'))
{
return true;
}
else
{
ht[0].style.filter = "";
return false;
}
}
//-->
</script>

Hey Sjakie did you work out how to do this with an image and no arrow?

Sjakie

I've figured it out. Look at the code that I've used on my forum for the "extra" button:

<td width="73" height="31" id="extra"><a href="$show[nojs_link]#extra"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/hdr_nav_extra.gif" width="73" height="31" border="0" alt="" /></a><script type="text/javascript"> vbmenu_register("extra" ,1); </script></td>



<div class="vbmenu_popup" id="extra_menu" style="display:none">
<table cellpadding="4" cellspacing="1" border="0">

<tr><td class="thead">Xbox Live</td></tr>
<tr><td class="vbmenu_option"><a href="leaderboard.php">Leaderboard</a></td></tr>
<tr><td class="vbmenu_option"><a href="forumdisplay.php?f=74">Clan Sub-Forum</a></td></tr>

Thanks great, thanks very much!

You don't know how to make it show when a user hovers over it instead of clicking? Just because most users wouldn't know there is a dropdown with more options until they click on it.

Thanks again for sharing it, really appreciate it :)

Great to be of assistance.

Don't know how to make it pop up. But I've seen a tutorial on xbox live GamerTag popups that includes that feature, maybe you can look that up..

The menu isn't working for me for some reason, the menu is just showing up on the page without being clicked on.

Was there any other code you added for it?

Thanks again

Sjakie
12 Mar 2007, 17:16
Nope, this is the code I've used. Were did you put it?

There are two parts in this code that have to be put in different locations.

John Diver
12 Mar 2007, 17:17
Ah right, I just placed all the code into the header to try it out before editing it for my own images/links.

How to make custom style to each vb_menu?

Example, menu one use this image https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/external/2010/06/3.gif (menu_open.gif) and other menu use an custom image by me.

In another words.... many vb_menu in same page, but custom and distinct style for each.

Thank you!

Thanks great, thanks very much!

You don't know how to make it show when a user hovers over it instead of clicking? Just because most users wouldn't know there is a drop down with more options until they click on it.

Thanks again for sharing it, really appreciate it :)

I would also be interested in how to get the drop down menu to activate when you mouse over the link.

Thanks,

Well I was going to add the drop down menu to my dark_vb_v2 style, but the menu_open.gif throws off the look. I noticed that its a javascript thats stored in the clientscript folder. Does this mean I can't edit out the menu_open.gif file? I have come to that conclusion, though I may be wrong.

Question, what is different with the code for Quick Links and this code that would render the new code non-working in Safari? I have everything entered correct, works perfectly in Firefox and IE, but if you use Safari, all the new links are unclickable. They are able to clickable links if they use the code that is there for Quick Links or Search.. so there is something in that code that I need to duplicate to get to work.

Hi Kerry Ann,

I was wondering if I might have some assistance with adding a drop down menu to my navigation bar. I have been struggling with this and just cannot get it to work. I think part of my problem is because I am using a custom template in which all links to my navigation bar are added to the "header" template and not the navbar template. Argh, I'm ready to pull my hair out.

My navigation bar is getting too cluttered so I want to add a drop down menu called "Fun & Games" in which a link to my Chatroom, Arcade and MP3 player will appear.

Here is a copy of my Header template. Can you assist me and show me where and how I would add a drop down menu? I will gladly pay you for your time. The content below outlined in green is the content which should appear in the new pull down menu.

Hi,

I have integrated a popmenu like this in my navbar. But it does not show when users are not logged in. I was wondering if you could tell me why this might be the case?
It works fine for logged in users.
I have not surrounded any part of the menu with a conditional show['members'] so not show why it isn't working...

okay, I have just taken another look. The problem is it works in Firefox but not it Internet Explorer. the problem is: it does not drop down on the site homepage. once in the forum section it works okay, it does not matter if you are logged in or not.

I have the same problem with my links being in the header template instead of the navbar. Does anyone know how I could create a drop-down menu that wouldn't mess up all of the formatting?

12 Sep 2007, 08:37
try placing the first part (where you want the link to show) inthe relitive part of your header template and the (second part) in the correct place in the navbar template. i'm not sure if it would work but it would be the first thing i tried!:)

EDIT: that does not work! sorry

Hi,

Ive just installed this on my forum and got it working :) Thank you

Is there anyway though of moving where the dropdown shows on the navbar? Ive attatched a screenshot of where it currently is and where I would like to move it to. Ive tried having a play around, but i cant get it to work.

Below is my navbar template as well.

If anyone can help, this would really be appreciated.

In 3.7 Beta 6 (if that matters) the pop up is showing up to the left of the link on the navbar?

I have tried several things to correct this and I'm stumped?

any help?

I copied the code exactly as above.

--------------- Added 1205822677 at 1205822677 ---------------





--------------- Added 1205864561 at 1205864561 ---------------

Any help here?

The drop down menu shows up to the left of the menu title for the drop down... It seems others have this issue to after some searching and no answers so far.

I got this on my nav bar and love it.

But is it possible to have sub menus on the drop downs that I made?

Ok, I have a question regarding drop down menus. I have sucessfully placed the drop down menu with the codes given here, now my problem is, how do I add a link to the menu itself. I tried adding but it's not working. Example of that is this:

<td id="pbamenu" class="new_menu">
<a href="http://philippinebasketball.net/index.php?pageid=pba">PBA</a>
<script type="text/javascript">
vbmenu_register("pbamenu", true);
</script>
</td>

I added a link to PBA but when I click it, it just open the drop down menu but it doesn't go to the page I linked.

A link to the menu itself? You mean if you click on the link (in your case PBA) you want it to go elsewhere?

If you do that you won't get the drop down menu. You could actually add that link within the menu as one of the items...

Is there a reason why I can't put a link to a url outside of my site?

I click on it and it will not open.

Here is my code:

Anyone know an answer to the menus showing up next to each other, rather than under each other as I've run into on this post?

Or if you just want to add a regular Navigation Link in additional to the others do this:

Find this in the Navi Bar Template
<if condition="$show['popups']">

After that code Add This:
<td id="custommenu" class="vbmenu_control">
<a href="#">Custom Menu</a>
<script type="text/javascript">
vbmenu_register("custommenu");
</script>
</td>

What's in the Pink is the Menu Name
What's in the Blue is the LINK
What's in the purple is the Menu Name


Enjoys :D

This is an awesome tutorial, thanks.

I need clarification though on how to move the position (left/right) of a drop-down menu?

Cheers. :)

Thanks for sharing your knowledge Kerry-Anne.
I have used this info a few times.
How would I go about adding drop downs within drop-downs?

I have got this installed on my forum navbar, but I have a simple request....

Could you remove everything from User CP to Search please?
If you would want to do this, it would be amazing :)
User CP - Members - Get VIP - Groups - Award - Arcade - New Posts - FAQ
Which would have to be gone from the navbar.
Which would leave...
Search - Quick Links - Log Out
in the left hand side of the navbar...

Here is the code of my current navbar state

If you can do this, please may you put the following code at the beginning of the navbar where I can start adding stuff (where User CP would be)
<!--- BEGIN DROP DOWN MENUS HERE --->
and put the following code where Search would start
<!--- END DROP DOWN MENUS HERE --->

If you do this, would it give me errors? Would it mess up the User CP menus? Would it mess up anything else inside the navbar (arcade, awards etc)?

If you can do this, then I would be sooo happy...
Thanks ever so much,
Dan!

Thanks for sharing your knowledge Kerry-Anne.
I have used this info a few times.
How would I go about adding drop downs within drop-downs?

Great tutorial. spot on. Many thanks for this, has helped me out no end :D


Sorry I worded my post wrong, I fully understand how to add a drop down's.

I just meant that I use it often.

In Dan's post, within his code, you will see the following.

</td>

Add that code to the beginning of each sub menue you want to add.

What I meant would be something like (in reference to attached image)...
When I hover over ACCC Communities, it will open up a submenu table to the right of the dropdown.

Any idea how to can I achieve that? Thanks in advance.

Thank you for this, very usefull and just what I was looking for.

I have a small problem, the dropdown menu does not show below the menu option, unlike the normal Quick Link menu, see examples attached;

Any idea how I can control this?

Look at the line of code that makes that link.

It should start out like this. <tr><td class="vbmenu_option">


You have it like this. <tr><td class="vbmenu_control">

Change control to option& you should be good.

Color? Has nothing to with color.

Please post your code that you are using in you drop down, in code brackets.
Let us have a look see.

I went to your site & saw your issue. Sorry.

I to need/want to have the popup menu show in relation to the link thats calling it, i.e the popup menu is showing to the left of the cell not the text/link, this is an easy fix im sure please could some one point us in the right direction.

--------------- Added 1223024888 at 1223024888 ---------------

Right i wasnt happy with the response we didnt get here with getting the drop down menu to be in the place we wanted them, so i have done a Drop Down Menu - Relative Positioning Tutorial (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=192565) on how to go about positioning the menus correctly.

Why vB didnt do it the way i have on my link i dont know, with any luck they adopt my method in the next release of vB. Heres hoping !

I got this to work fine, but can anyone tell me how to make it so the drop-down menus apper by hovering over them, instead of having to click on them first?

If you follow Kerry's instructions along with other inputs then you'd get it to work correctly. Make sure you read and understand every words.

Good luck...

I have a problem with the positioning of my drop down menus. See the attachment.

To enable the new design of the forum to mirror the website I have had to add the following to the css:

.page
{
background-color:white;
width: 800px;

top:0px;
overflow: visible;
margin-right: auto;
margin-left: auto;
margin-bottom:0px;
position: relative;
text-align: center;

padding: 0px;
}

When I remove this, the drop down menus appear correctly under their respective titles. However I require this, for the design to work correctly. Any ideas how i can reposition my drop down menus so they appear directly below their respective titles.

I understand how to add an additional nav bar but how do you add a drop down link that acts like the quick links and also how do you make the nav bar appear at the top of the login box? The original one is always at the bottom and I've seen it sandwiched between two nav bars.

Thanks

Hi,

I am new to vb and I just got 3.8 - Is it still the same process or is there any chances?

As well... could I do this in the "HEADER" template, instead of the navbar template?

Drop Down Menu is not near the link in navbar. Why this can be?

Is it somehow possible to make these drop-down menus dependent on which sub-forum is being viewed? So that the links in the menu are different for different sub-forums.

You would have to wrap a condition around stuff:
<if condition="$forumid == '5'">
stuff just for when you are in forumid 5
</if>

I got the working almost perfectly, but... on existing dropdowns like search, or quicklinks, the dropdown menu aligns with the left of the link. However on the new dropdown menu that I added, the dropdown appears further to the left of the link, like its centered under the left side of the link. What can I do about this?

I found this good little article regarding how to add a drop down to your navbar. http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/newreply.php?do=newreply&noquote=1&p=769703



I've used this tutorial to create a new drop down on my navbar, It does appear on the navbar, however, when clicking on the menu, the drop down appears on the left side of the cell, rather than the center, like my other drop downs.

I can't seem to find the correct verbiage to resolve this.

I'd appreciate any direction.


here are the relevant bits.

Thanks for the heads up that the first part of the template edit is in the SECOND instance not the FIRST. I'd have never figured it out without that nugget. It was driving me crazy!

Installed, looking very nice. Great template mod...

Can you highlight in red the stuff you added? I don't know what your templates used to look like so I can't tell what you added.

You've got a customized navbar and so you can't just follow the directions exactly. You should take a look at the default navbar and see what these directions are trying to tell you to do and then apply that to your custom one. Or, ask your skin designer to help you with this.

I'm not seeing the drop down menu on my forum. I have a slightly modified navbar template. I created a 2nd row (right under the default navbar). I'm trying to insert it in there and its a no-go.

I'm trying to follow the way some of the default dropdowns are working (ie. Community) and its still not working. Not sure what I'm doing wrong.....

Let me know if you want me to post my template here, if you have a minute to look thru it

Did you know there is a modification to add a second navbar?

Probably, if you need help with your navbar and the drop-down, the best place to post the code is in the main forums where more people will see it and be able to help. It's also easier to keep all your stuff in your own thread rather than have others posting their problems also in this thread. Don't forget to use the code/html/php tags when posting code.

Is this a customized navbar?
What version Vbulletin you using?

I started to do it i colored the code in you need to find in red and the code that you need to add is in blue for the 1st step, but you dont seem to have the same code as i do in my navbar and i cant fint the "<!-- NAVBAR POPUP MENUS -->" in your code to do the next step.

Sorry i tried.

Anyone able to help me place the drop downs in the header? I still need help with that.

If you need specific help, you may want to create a thread in the main help forums. This thread isn't checked all the time and it's hard to follow a 'conversation' when others are asking for support also.

Most styles that I have seen that have the navbar moved to the header template have left the dropdown part of the menus in the navbar template.

Ok, sorry for bumping this thread and I feel kinda stupid asking for help because it shouldn't be very hard. I've followed the instructions to a T, read all the replies here, and still no luck - I can't get anything to show up! Website is http://truestreetcars.com using 3.8.2. Any help is appreciated. :) Current navbar template:

You never added it to your navbar. You only did the second part of the instructions (the dropdown part).

Yes. But, if you are using a custom style, you may have to change things slightly due to changes between the default style and your custom style.

I've tried to get this work and no luck. It hasn't showed up in the nav bar for me. For a quick instance it showed up next to my log in information, but that disappeared.

Here's my code. As far as I can see for Step 1 I found the correct.

Here's my code broken up with the bolded parts being what I had added in. If the entire code is needed, let me know. I figured this would might be easy to determine if and where I messed up

You are adding the code into your navbar where the Notifications are supposed to go. You need to add it amongst the other navbar links.

Ah... Thank you. I had been wondering why I wasn't putting any code where the Nav Buttons are. I guess for 3.8 it would be the 2nd instance of <if condition=$show['popups']">

One mroe quick question... I don't want the "nohilite" feature. Do I just delete >>title="nohilite"<<?

Try it and see. (Sorry, I've always left that there, so I don't know what happens if you remove it.)

Will this work with
<if>
<if condition="is_member_of($bbuserinfo, 5, 6, 7)"> I want to make sure the menu is only shown to those usergroups. It works right now with a direct link but now i need more menus underneath it.

Lynne
09 Nov 2009, 17:46
I don't know why you have that extra <if>. This should work:

<if condition="is_member_of($bbuserinfo, 5, 6, 7)">
stuff only to be seen by members of usergorup 5,6,7
</if>

hi i can add a new drop down menu no problem using the instructions in this thread but my question is how does one add a submenu to an already existing navbar link, specifically User CP

i want to add some links under this i.e. My Posts, My Details, My Contacts etc...

this was really helpful, our navibar was getting seriously cluttered and thankfully we managed to group similar links together and even add more!!! :D
thanks a bunch ^_^

This is so valuable to know!

It works GREAT in FF, but in IE it completely fails.

I'm using a somewhat custom navbar, tho, so I don't know if I've got something in the wrong place, but like I said, it works great in FF...

Could this be a setting in IE8 that I'm missing?

I really need to get this working so people can use my site properly...

Any ideas?

EDIT: It's not just my own dropdown that's not working in IE, but it's ALL of them (when I'm signed in the existing navbar shows), but there's one thing...I have the UserCP Navbar Menu mod installed, and it's the ONLY popup that's working. :erm:

Dropdown is the ones with the Arrow next to them not a nav going down.

The drop down link shows up fine in Chrome and FireFox but when I view it in IE it goes bananas. Attached image is how it shows once I click the drop down link. Why is it doing that?

Here is the code I used

<td class="vbmenu_control"><a id="custommenu" href="#" rel="nofollow" accesskey="6">Custom Menu</a> <script type="text/javascript"> vbmenu_register("custommenu"); </script></td>

and

<div class="vbmenu_popup" id="custommenu_menu" style="display:none;margin-top:3px" align="$stylevar[left]">

I'm trying to get this mod (How To Add Drop Down Menus To Your Navbar) to work on my website. I'm running vB 3.8.7PL3 and need a little handholding to get this done. I decided to leave your "custom menu" and "Custom Menu" in place in order to get it going first and then [once going], I could change things up. Below is what I have so far. I'm listing my titles in red.

Please help.

[<!--Stop Custom Drop Down Menu Part 2-->

Hello Bob, This edit is not working for you? If you added the code to the correct location as per instructions it will wok flawlessly.

Are you trying to add this to a new top navbar?

microbob

Eddie,

I want the Main drop-down heading to be "New York" (with no link).

I want the remaining drop-down subheadings for New York to be:

1) "NY Caught-The-Skunk.com Supporters" + Link
2) "Fishing Flea Markets" + Link
3) "Outdoor Sports' Shows" + Link

etc...etc...etc..., as I'm trying to convert a vertical menu to a horizontal menu. As it sits, the text "Custom Menu" is not even close to the designated location. It's showing up outside (i.e., below the Breadcrumb Menu), just below the text/link "User CP."

I copied my entire Navbar code and placed the mod in RED. Please edit as necessary. I would very much appreciate your help in getting this done.

I figure that after I get one set done that I can struggle through the others. If not, I'll be back on here seeking help again.

Here it is:

Well, first things first. Let's put the actual part people are going to click on to open the menu in the right place.
<!--Start Custom Drop Down Menu Part 1-->

<td id="custommenu" class="vbmenu_control"><a href="">Custom Menu</a>
<script type="text/javascript">vbmenu_register("custommenu");</script>
</td>

<!--End Custom Drop Down Menu Part 1 -->

vBulletin looked a little different when this tutorial was made in 2006, so it's not going to work under the first instance of <if condition="$show['popups']">. However, you've put it under the third instance. It needs to go somewhere under the second, otherwise it's incomplete table code just floating on the page somewhere. Let's put it in after/under the Calendar for right now:

<if condition="$show['popups']">
<td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="calendar.php$session[sessionurl_q]">$vbphrase[calendar]</a></td>
<if condition="$show['popups']">
<!--Start Custom Drop Down Menu Part 1-->

<td id="custommenu" class="vbmenu_control">
<a href="#">Custom Menu</a>
<script type="text/javascript">vbmenu_register("custommenu");</script>
</td>

<!--End Custom Drop Down Menu Part 1 -->
(NOTE: That hashtag is important. Removing it will actually do the opposite of what you want it to do.)

You can put this pretty much anywhere you want, as long as you keep it inside the giant <table> that's containing all the menu items. Remember that it's a <td> cell, which means if you don't nest it properly, it won't look right. A proper table is made of the <table> itself, then table rows <tr> then row divisions <td>.

<table>
<tr>
<td>calendar</td>
<td>custom menu</td>
<td>new posts</td>
</tr>
</table>

Everything neatly nested one inside the other. No overlapping tags.


Now the menu itself can go right where you had it. No one is going to see it until it's clicked on. But the code's a little mussy. The menu is a little table itself, with multiple rows <tr>, but only one <td> per row. Again, it needs to be properly nested to show up right.

<!--Start Custom Drop Down Menu Part 2-->

<div class="vbmenu_popup" id="custommenu_menu" style="display:none">
<table cellpadding="4" cellspacing="1" border="0">

<tr><td class="thead">Custom Menu</td></tr>
<tr><td class="vbmenu_option" title="nohilite">This opening row and cell
don't close in the right place, so they're not needed.

<tr><td class="vbmenu_option" title="nohilite"><a href="http://www.caught-the-skunk.com/index.php?pageid=new-york-supporters">NY Caught-The-Skunk.com Supporters</a></td></tr>

<tr><td class="vbmenu_option" title="nohilite"><a href="http://www.caught-the-skunk.com/index.php?pageid=new-york-fishing-flea-markets">Fishing Flea Markets</a></td></tr>

<tr><td class="vbmenu_option" title="nohilite"><a href="http://www.caught-the-skunk.com/index.php?pageid=new-york-fishing-boating-outdoors-shows">Outdoor Sports' Shows</a></td></tr>

</td>
</tr> This closing row and cell tag are not in the right
place, either, and not needed.
</table>
</div>

<!--Stop Custom Drop Down Menu Part 2-->

Then when you get to styling it, just use the classes, as they're shown in the example. class="thead" for headers, and class="vbmenu_option" for the clickable areas. (Though a header can also be a link, if needed.) Hopefully, that get's you started on the right track.

Overnight, I was able to get the double-menu up with the appropriate headings (code in green) in place. Now, I need help with placement/editing of the code for the sub-heading drop-downs on the top part of the double-menu. I highlighted the code (in red) that Digital Jedi helped me with establishing a drop-down on the bottom part of the double-menu. That way, it can be moved if necessary to make things work on the top part. Once I get the correct coding established, I will do the same for the remaining states that my website covers, i.e., NJ, PA, DE, MD, & VA.

Code is as follows:

So is this a second navbar? If each of these are going to be their own individual drop down menus, then it looks fine. Each one will need it's own unique ID. In the three places custommenu appeared (twice in the navbar link, and once in the drop down menu), you'll put the unique id. That tells which button what to open and from where.

That's a lot of menus.

Digital Jedi,

Yes, we're talking about the TOP-MENU ONLY with the New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland & Virginia and now adding the drop-down menus to these headings.

1) So, as I understand it, I am going to leave the main headings [Green-colored code] where they currently are located (i.e., as in my previous post) in the Navbar template.

2) Now, do I continue with additional heading entries using the menu code below, but where I change the heading from New York to New Jersey and rename "custommenu" to "custommenu1" ?


<!--Start Top Navbar Custom Main-Heading Drop Down Menu New York-->

<td id="custommenu" class="vbmenu_control"><a href="#">New York</a><script type="text/javascript">vbmenu_register("custommenu");</script>
</td>

<!--End Top Navbar Custom Main-Heading Drop Down Menu New York-->


<!--Start Top Navbar Custom Main-Heading Drop Down Menu New Jersey-->

<td id="custommenu1" class="vbmenu_control"><a href="#">New Jersey</a><script type="text/javascript">vbmenu_register("custommenu1");</script>
</td>

<!--End Custom Top Navbar Main-Heading Drop Down Menu New Jersey-->


....then do the same for the remaining states, e.g., "custommenu2", "custommenu3", etc...?

3) Where do I place this code so it shows up in the TOP-MENU in the Navbar template?

4) Do I continue with additional sub-headings using the sub-menu code below, but where I change the sub-heading from a New York-based sub-heading + link to a New Jersey-based sub-heading + link , i.e., after plugging in all of the additional New York sub-headings first?


<!--Start Custom Sub-Heading Menu New York-->

<div class="vbmenu_popup" id="custommenu_menu" style="display:none">
<table cellpadding="4" cellspacing="1" border="0">

<tr><td class="thead">New York</td></tr>

<tr><td class="vbmenu_option"><a href="http://www.caught-the-skunk.com/index.php?pageid=new-york-supporters">[B]NY Caught-The-Skunk.com Supporters</a></td></tr>

<!--End Custom Sub-Heading Menu New York-->


<!--Start Custom Sub-Heading Menu New Jersey-->

<div class="vbmenu_popup" id="custommenu1_menu" style="display:none">
<table cellpadding="4" cellspacing="1" border="0">

<tr><td class="thead">New Jersey</td></tr>

<tr><td class="vbmenu_option"><a href="http://www.caught-the-skunk.com/index.php?pageid=new-york-supporters">[B]NJ Caught-The-Skunk.com Supporters</a></td></tr>

</table>
</div>

<!--End Custom Sub-Heading Menu New Jersey-->

.......then do the same for the remaining sub-heading/links, e.g., "custommenu2_menu", "custommenu3_menu", etc...?

5) Is there (1) </table> followed by (1) </div> after I'm entered all this information?

6) Finally, I want to make each of the headings look like a button in menu bars. Is this something you can help me with? vBulletin default is ok. Don't want his image; just want the button effect. Here is the example:

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=245441

I want to thank you for this help. It is greatly appreciated!!! I'm just an average Joe struggling with these little changes but learning along the way.

1) So, as I understand it, I am going to leave the main headings [Green-colored code] where they currently are located (i.e., as in my previous post) in the Navbar template.
If that's where you want them, in a separate navbar, then they can technically go wherever you want. So long as everything is nested properly, they'll show up wherever you want them. Even outside the default navabar. It seems to be in it's own main div container, so you should be good as long as you've nested it properly in the overall HTML.

2) Now, do I continue with additional heading entries using the menu code below, but where I change the heading from New York to New Jersey and rename "custommenu" to "custommenu1" ?

3) Where do I place this code so it shows up in the TOP-MENU in the Navbar template?
For these, the actual content of dropdown menus, these will all go in the same location as the fist one you made. That's mainly so you can find them again, and so they don't interfere with anything else. Their location is not the important part, however. Their unique identifiers are. The ID is what tells the the item clicked on which menu to display. So for example, you could just call the New York navbar link newyork:

<td id="newyork" class="vbmenu_control"><a href="#">New York</a><script type="text/javascript">vbmenu_register("newyork");</script>
</td>

See the two instances of newyork? That was where the two instances of custommenu were. This particular link is now going to execute JavaScript that's going to look for a div with the prefix newyork in its ID when someone clicks on it. So the actual menu content's id would be the one below:

<div class="vbmenu_popup" id="newyork_menu" style="display:none">
<table cellpadding="4" cellspacing="1" border="0">

<tr><td class="thead">New York</td></tr>

<tr><td class="vbmenu_option"><a href="http://www.caught-the-skunk.com/index.php?pageid=new-york-supporters">[B]NY Caught-The-Skunk.com Supporters</a></td></tr>

</table>
<div>
So, you give each of your cities/menu something unique to identify them by. So long as don't use any special characters or spaces, you can call them whatever you want.

5) Is there (1) </table> followed by (1) </div> after I'm entered all this information?
Each menu item is a div with a table inside of them, so yes. Anything opened (<tag>) will have to be properly closed (</tag>). Similar to before:


<div>
<table>
<tr><td>menu item</td></tr>
<tr><td>menu item</td></tr>
</table>
</div>


6) Finally, I want to make each of the headings look like a button in menu bars. Is this something you can help me with? vBulletin default is ok. Don't want his image; just want the button effect. Here is the example:

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=245441
Actually, you can still follow his tutorial, just pick the image you want to use. Open up the Style Manager as he directs and look for the Edit CSS option. Then look for the block that handles the vbmenu_control class. Because it's CSS, you can do, well, all kinds of things to the menu. But just try out as he's directed, and you should get a really good idea of what you want to do from there. Also check W3Schools for their CSS tutorials and reference guide. Their very explanatory, but very brief. Easy to quickly grasp CSS from their tutorials in my opinion.

I want to thank you for this help. It is greatly appreciated!!! I'm just an average Joe struggling with these little changes but learning along the way.

After pulling my hair out for a few hours, I finally (through trial and error) figured it out. I actually wound up deleting the GREEN CODE and worked with your suggestions. Thank God! And thanks to the Digital Jedi too! Lots of work to put in all of those drop-downs in (6) headings but I really like it. Now I don't have to work on putting the "Superfish" menu up.

Now...as far as the BUTTON EFFECT is concerned, I have found the "CSS Selector: vbmenu_control" under "Popup Menu Controls" in the Admin CP.

Very important: I do NOT want to use his image; just want to use the standard "blue" Background (#738FBF) on the entire top & bottom menus, as the button's color. Just looking for the button effect.

My current default "Extra CSS Attributes" in the "Popup Menu Controls" is currently set as:

padding 3px 6px 3px 6px
white-space: nowrap;

How do I get the button effect?

I think you might mean something else by "button effect" than what he's demonstrating in his tutorial. In his case, the image IS the button effect. He creates the illusion of buttons by adding a background image to that class and adjusting its padding so there appears to be spaces in between. You can still have that kind of button without a background image, it would just be solid in color.

microbob
22 Jan 2013, 01:57
I see.

So how would I do the solid color to make it look like a button?

And/or maybe a white (or other color) vertical dividing line to separate the headings?

Bob

I personally would do that by setting the left or right margins to about a pixel or so. Something like margin-left:2px;. That would put a space beside every menu item, which will be the background color of the navbar. Try something like this in the additional CSS field:

margin-left:2px; /* This puts the space beside each item with this class. */
padding:0 6px 0 6px; /* This sets the spacing inside the items with this class clockwise from the top. */
white-space:nowrap; /* This makes certain the text of the items stays on one line */

Digital Jedi

Certainly not using this vB3 article. As far as know, vB5 doesn't have native dropdowns. You would have to get a custom one and integrate it yourself.
