Accordion Menu V2 with Hotshot Theme

Post by norman »

To use the Accordion menu V2 with the Hotshot Theme, several tweaks need made to the CSS file that accordion uses.

To install do the following:

Install Accordion Menu and leave all the settings in Settings / Site Options / Accordion Menu at their defaults.

Unzip the attached file into your Site folder.

Go to Design / Library / Layouts / Accordion Menu / Glossy Accordion Menu Setup.

Near the bottom is a line:

Code: Select all

<link href="accordion-glossy.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
Amend this to be:

Code: Select all

<link href="accordion-glossy-hotshot.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
OK out.

To put the menu into your pages, in your Overall Layout, look for the line:

Code: Select all

	<actinic:variable name="TopLevelSectionList" value="Top Level Section List In A Shaded Box" />
Replace that line with:

Code: Select all

	<div class="hotshot-box-main">
	<div class="hotshot-box-content" style="padding: 10px 0;">
	<actinic:variable name="AccordionMenu" />
	</div>
	</div>
You can now fine-tune via Settings / Site Options / Accordion Menu. Note that this replacement CSS file overrides some of these settings so not all changes you make will have any effect.

The above is supplied to assist users and is not supported. Some CSS skill may be required for fine-tuning.

Thank you so much for this Norman, it looks great! Really can't thank you enough

A few of our section titles were a bit long but ive worked out how to move the margin in the css file. However when I open or collapse the sections which go to 3 tiers, the section titles seem to linger on the screen for longer than the backgrounds. Is there anything I can do about this?

Also when I open the 'SubSub' sections, the bottom of one of the brouchure links on the siderbar become rounded off, like it is at the bottom. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Without an URL I can't see what you are reporting.

I can't give a URL as the site is not online yet, here is an image file of the 'rounded corner' problem though:
