Heading for Collapso menu

Post by lampy001 » Fri Apr 11, 2008 9:12 pm

Hi,
I have recently purchased Collapso and am now experimenting with it in the web site that we are creating with Actinic Catalog 8.5.3. All good so far, it is installed and I have edited the css files OK. But I would like to give my new menu a title, say: "Products" or: "On-line Shop" for example. As a relative newbie, I have not yet found any facility within Collapso that will do this - am I missing something here, or should I be looking towards creating/modifying a layout in Actinic in some way? What is the best way to give a menu a title?

Regards

Just put it in the Overall Layout immediately above the

<actinic:variable name="Collapso-5 Dynamic Menu" />

line.

You can look at other headings in this area (usually the left habd column) and copy what they use.

Hi Norman,
Thanks for your advice. I have now inserted a heading using the <h5>, <center> and <font color tags> and it looks OK; it'll certainly do for now until my html skills improve.

It'd be nice to have the title appear integrated with the rest of the Collapso menu though; is this something for the future perhaps?

Regards

Not everyone wants a built-in title (your the first to ask for this in the few years this patch has been out) - so it would have to be optional and that would add to the complexity of the patch. Also the style of the title is Theme dependent and that again adds complexity.

I'll add a note to the Collapso ReadMe about manually titling it.
