Accordion Menu with Actinic V10 Smart Theme

Post by norman »

To fit the Accordion menu into the Smart Theme on Actinic V10 do the following:

Install Accordion as per the ReadMe, but when you got to the bit:-

"2) Still in the overall layout, in the Layout Code window, where you want the menu to appear"

do the following instead.

Go to Design / Library / Layouts / Custom Sidebar Boxes / JavaScript Section List in a Box.

Look for the block of code:

Code: Select all

        <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
			document.write(YahooSections(section_tree)) 
		  </script>
Replace it with:

Code: Select all

			<actinic:variable name="AccordionMenu" />
O.K. out and the menu should now display.

The Smart Theme loads a big JavaScript file that displayed the old menu and this should be deleted as it is no longer needed and is a big file that slows down page load times.

Edit your Overall Layout and look for the block of code:

Code: Select all

<actinic:variable name="JavaScriptArray" value="All Data From All Sections" />
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
<!--
function YahooSections(ar)
{
var strIDs = '';
for (var i=1;i<=ar.length;i++)
  {
  if (ar[i].sURL != null)
    {
    strIDs += '<a href="' + ar[i].sURL + '"><span class="actxxsmall"><b>' + ar[i].sName + '</b></span></a><br />';
      {
      if (ar[i].pChild)
        {
        for (var j=1;j<=ar[i].pChild.length;j++)
          {
          if (ar[i].pChild[j].sURL != null)
            {
            strIDs += '<a href="' + ar[i].pChild[j].sURL + '"><span class="actxxsmall">' + ar[i].pChild[j].sName + '</span></a><br />';
            }
          }
        }
      }
    strIDs += '<br />'
    }
  }
return strIDs
}
//-->
</script>
Delete it as it's no longer used.

Repeat the above step for your the Overall Layout used on your Brochure pages.
