    Navigation

    I am new at this...

    How do I make the nav drop down on the top level pages?

    I would go for XSLT when creating a menu of any kind. If you know how the final rendered HTML should look like, you should be able to create this with XSLT.

    Maybe you can find some inspiration in the default build-in XSLT templates in Umbraco. Simply create a new XSLT-file (in the Developer section), and choose one of the XSLT templates. Maybe something like "List subpages from ... ". Have you ever worked with XSLT or you new to this as well as Umbraco?

    I am new to XSLT but figured out how to do it in the Runway kit. I am trying to figure out how to do it in the Standard Website Kit. I know it is something simple.

    If you made it work in the Runway kit, then you should be able to almost just copy the code from that XSLT-file into your Standard Website Kit as well. Have you tried this?And if yes, are you almost there and just missing a small part of the menu, or haven't you rendered any menu at all yet? Just asking to know wheter you are starting from scratch or not :)

    Hi Brett and welcome to the community

    As Kim is saying there are some nice pre-made XSLT files you can use for you navigation macroes. When you create an XSLT file you can choose them from the dropdown list, that appears.

    I usually recommend the "sitemap" file because it goes through all the nodes recursively - but of course it depends on what kind of navigation structure you're making.

    If you have any problems getting it to work please don't hesitate to show us your code and give us a description of the problem so we can help you out :-)

    Maybe I'm not clear on what I want to do. I would like to make a menuing system similar to http://www.emagineusa.com. I know how to do it in a variety of different ways but I am testing Umbraco and I would like to see how easy using this CMS.

     

    Thanks.
